No Shopping DMZ Half Day Tour from Seoul

123 reviews
Enjoy the highlights of the DMZ and get back to Seoul in time for lunch on a guided group tour. Listen to immersive commentary during visits to Imjingak Park, Dora Observatory, and other important landmarks. Have your camera ready for an unobstructed view of one of the world's most famous demilitarized zones. Best of all, this excursion does not include unnecessary shopping stops that other tours add on, which saves you valuable vacation time.

A must go. The views are so worth. Visibility was 20-25km the day we visited, a clear day or maybe even a snowy day for a second visit would be my preference. Sky bridge anyone?? But really. Lol. There are 5 floors overall for the observation deck, 2 main floors with the lounge being at the top. Use an elevator on F121 to reach it. While visiting the Sky Lounge for snacks or drinks is nice, we didn’t care for the main entrees. There is better food in the tower. Lots of photo zone opportunities that you can purchase. There was a lot of glare when trying to take photos, so be prepared for that. Parking is ample at Lotte Tower or Mall. You can get a discount for parking if you show your receipt for the tower upon leaving if you parked near the tower. Seoul Sky entry is on Floor B1. We bought the Lotte Aquarium/Seoul Sky combo tickets for just under 80k KWN for both of us (a promotional event I think). We were able to go visit the aquarium and shop after lunch time and then go back to Seoul Sky whenever we wanted (we chose to catch sunset at the observation deck). Once you enter the observation deck you cannot re enter if you leave but there is no time limit.

We went to the Lotte World Tower on our last day as we had some spare cash to spend. I thought it was a little expensive for a ride in a lift (around 25GBP) but I have to say that the views of the city are stunning and the beginning of the trip is quite spectacular.

My family and I spent two relaxing hours on a sunny Sunday late morning at the top of South Korea’s tallest building and the world’s 5th tallest building (123-storey, 555-m-tall) and at the world’s highest glass-floor observation deck as stated in the Guinness World Records. Getting there and Entrance Fees: We took Subway Line 2 to Jamsil (Songpa-gu Office) Station (you could also take Subway Line 8) and when we walked out of exit 2, the Lotte World Mall with the Lotte World Tower building greeted us. The Lotte World Tower is a separate building from the Lotte World Mall. Either you enter the World Mall and walk through the department store to the end or like us, we walked turned right from Exit 2 and walked around the World Mall to reach the World Tower. Once inside, we proceeded to the ticket office located at the World Tower lobby at basement 1 (B1) floor. To the left of the lobby, you could take a photograph with the inscription “I ♡ SEOUL SKY”. Seoul Sky at the top of Lotte World Tower opens 10 am to 10 pm Sunday to Thursday and from 10 am to 11 pm on Friday, Saturday, and public holidays. Entrance fee is ₩ 27,000 (for adult aged 13 and above) and ₩ 24,000 for children aged 3 to 12. I booked discounted tickets through Klook which I collected in redemption for the vouchers at the ticket office. The Attraction (Seoul Sky): Once we passed through security, we entered the elevator boarding area. Here we viewed videos about the construction of the tower, tourist destinations in Seoul and the natural wonders of Korea. We then boarded the Sky Shuttle elevator - which holds Guinness World Records of the fastest double-deck elevator at 600 metres per minute – and got to observation deck entrance at 117th floor in under one minute! There are several levels/floors at the Sky Tower observatory which we went using the escalators: 117 – observation deck, 118 – observation deck & Sky Deck, 119 – Sky Friends Café, 120 – Exit floor and Sky Terrace, 121 – Exit floor and Seoul Sky Shop, 122 – Seoul Sky Café, 123 – I23 Lounge (you need a special ticket to enter the 123rd floor). There is also an art exhibition zone in basement level 2. What we enjoyed: (1) Superb 360 degrees panoramic views of Seoul city including N Seoul Tower, Olympic Park, Lotte World, Seokchon Lake Park attractions and the surrounding mountain ranges (e.g. Bukhansan, Dobongsan). It allows us to appreciate how huge the mega-city of Seoul is! To me, what stands out is the lovely blue Hangang River and the 10 bridges (Seongsu, Yeongdong, Cheongdam, Jamsil, Jamsil Railway, Olympic, Cheonho, Gwangjin, Gur-Amsa, Gangdong) that are seen from the observation deck. (2) The two large transparent “see-through” glass sections on the Sky Deck 118th floor where you could look straight down and appreciate that you are in one of the tallest buildings in the world. Even if you are afraid of heights, you are in a “safe” enclosed environment, so don’t worry, go ahead and step on the glass or sit on the glass. (3) The refreshing experience of stepping out into the open-air Sky Terrace (at 486 metre) with the high glass panels partially sheltering us from the strong wind (4) Having desserts (ice creams) and tea at the Sky Friends Café while relaxing in the views (5) There is no time limit as to how long we could stay (6) It was not crowded before early afternoon, even during the weekend. The visitors are mainly the locals with the occasional tour group. My family and I enjoyed ourselves at this Seoul Sky Tower, which is located in south-eastern part of Seoul. It offers a different perspective, experience and scenery from that of N Seoul Tower, which is located in the central part of Seoul. For me, we would visit again this “must-see” attraction during sunset and during the night the next time we are in Seoul. However, do check the weather before visiting because the ticket price is not cheap and you would not see much if there are clouds or fog or rain covering the city.

My family and I prepaid for our tickets to visit. We went early in the morning so it wasn’t so busy. It was a very interesting experience - from the interactive movie to the glass floor there is plenty to see. When we visited, the outside deck was closed without advising why. They took many photos at points. A bit expensive to purchase individually 15,000 won each. They should offer a multiple package price which would be more appealing. Definitely something to experience
