South Korea:

We all know there is a competition when it comes to building the largest tower in the world. I think it’s the same with elevators. Did you know that the fastest elevator in the world is 496 meters tall and travels from the basement to the 121st floor in just 1 minute?
Amazing, right?
Do you know where we need to travel in order to experience this exciting ride?
It is the Lotte World Tower in Seoul.
A bit more about it:
After six years of construction, the 555-meter-tall Lotte World Tower opened in Seoul.
Not only is it the tallest tower in South Korea and fifth highest in the world – it’s also home to the highest glass-bottom observatory at 478 meters.
The Lotte World Tower features the world’s tallest and fastest double-decker elevator, the Sky Shuttle, which whisks passengers from the basement to the 121st-floor observation deck in one minute, or at 10 meters per second.
The views are amazing!
Definitely to be part of a city tour of Seoul!
