Shoot skywards in the world's fastest double-deck elevator to the world's highest glass-floored observation deck.
Travelling 500m per minute up in the world's fastest double-deck elevator, arrive atop Seoul's newest and tallest building to stunning views.
Seoul Sky, the world's third-highest observatory, recently opened in the South Korean capital.
The observatory is on the upper floors of Seoul's new and now-tallest building, Lotte World Tower.
Visitors can board the elevator to Seoul Sky from the lobby levels of the Lotte World Tower to arrive at the 118th floor for a view of the entire city through the glass walls on all sides.
On clear days, visitors will be able to see as far as Songdo, Incheon and the Yellow Sea.
Seoul Sky is in Songpa-gu in the southern suburbs of Seoul.
General admission costs 27,000 Korean won ($31) and is open from 9.30am to 11pm daily.
