Completed in early 2017, Seoul's latest landmark is the 555m-high Lotte World Tower – the tallest skyscraper in Korea (and sixth highest in the world). Its sleek contemporary design is loosely inspired by traditional Korean ceramics and features the world's highest observation deck, Seoul Sky, with a glass-floored skywalk, art gallery, cafes, six-star hotel and the mega Lotte World Mall complex.
Lotte World Tower has quickly become a favourite destination for those staying south of the river in Seoul. Reaching a height of 555m, a ticket to the tower allows you entrance between the 117th and 123rd floors. On the 123rd floor, there is a lounge serving cocktails, as well as several cafes that offer coffee and desserts a few flights down.
