Lotte World Tower & Mall
Traditional Korean ceramics and calligraphy inspired the design of the 223-story Lotte World Tower. At the base sits the 10-story Lotte World Mall; if shopping isn’t your thing, don’t miss a performance in the vineyard-style concert hall or a film in one of Asia’s largest theaters. The luxury Signiel Seoul hotel occupies floors 76 to 101. And for the best views of the city, grab your camera and head up to the Seoul Sky observatory.
Some travelers stop by the Lotte World Tower & Mall as part of a flexible hop-on hop-off bus tour. Or, opt for a guided tour, including round-trip transfer from your hotel, for a hassle-free sightseeing experience.
