63 Building

63building-02.jpg The 63 building is a 63-floor, pointy-shaped building in Yeouido Island, Seoul, next to the Han River. It has an aquarium, an IMAX theater and an observatory. It also has great shopping, numerous restaurants, banquet halls and other assorted utility rooms. 63 Building was opened in 1985 and standing with 63 stories, 3 stories underground and 60 above ground, this is the tallest building in Seoul until the Hyperion Tower surpassed it in 2003. The skyscraper is the headquaters of Korea Life Insurance, Industrial Bank of Korea Securities and other major financial companies. The 63 Building is the iconic landmark of the Miracle on the Han River, symbolizing the nation's rapid economic achievement in the late 20th century. We bought 3 tickets: IMAX show, Sea World and the Observation Deck (also known as 63 Golden Tower), the tickets for all three were 26,000 Korean Won for adult or 24.00 CAD, 23,000 Korean Won for teens or 20.00 CAD and 20,000 Korean Won for a child or 18.00 CAD. It was all worth the money we paid for the tickets but the IMAX shows were in Korean so its not meant for people who does not understand Korean language. We also had the chance to dine in the Buffet Restaurant, the food and chefs were great! There were Western, Korean, Japanese and Chinese sections and you can choose whatever you like.
