Seoul Sky which is considered as Korea's highest observation deck will open next week to the public. As it will already be available, this deck built by Lotte Group will generate fresh momentum for the retail giant which is in the midst of losing Chinese customers.

The Lotte World Tower houses the Seoul Sky which is situated in its 117th to the 123th floor. It will then start to receive visitors from March 22 as shared by an operator of the Lotte World.

The deck which is located in the highest skyscraper in the world is some 500 meters above the ground and was made to accommodate 900 people at once. If people will visit the deck, they will take the double-deck elevator which is called Sky Shuttle. The elevator will just take the people to the deck in just one minute as per Korea Times.

Despite the trouble that the Lotte business is facing at the moment because of a dispute with China over the THAAD, the observation of the deck still continues. The company is facing problems after China implemented its retaliatory measures against the THAAD. Lotte entered an agreement to a land swap with the military.

It can be recalled that Beijing just announced to its travel agencies earlier this month to stop selling tour packages to South Korea. The country also ordered a shutdown of Lotte's supermarkets which are operating in the country.

However, Lotte explained that the observation deck shall have an expected number of visitors at 2.3 million just for this year. Apart from this, this deck will also represent and will symbolize the beauty and pride of Korea.

It has been added to that the Seoul sky deck which is located on the 118th floor and the super-fast elevator have been included in the Guinness Book of World Records. Moreover, the deck has also been considered as the highest placed glass-floor observation platform in the world which is located in Korea.
