Start with an art exhibition focusing on South Korea’s history and culture on levels B1 and B2 before heading to level 117 on the city's fastest elevators, with speeds of 33 feet (10 meters) per second. Those who dare can walk across the world’s highest glass-floored observatory on level 118's Sky Deck. Head to the open-topped Sky Terrace, on floor 120, for fresh air and loftier views. Enjoy refreshments at Sky Friends Cafe, Seoul Sky Cafe, or 123Lounge.
Book your tickets ahead of time to ensure entry. Upgrade to a fastpass ticket at the box office to skip the lines. Discounted entry is included as part of some multi-attraction sightseeing passes. Or opt for a combo pass that also includes entry to Lotte World Adventure theme park for extra savings.
