Opened in 1985 and standing 63 stories high, this building is the tallest in Seoul. It serves as a major attraction where you can get the best panoramic views of the capital. Within the building, there are offices, restaurants, coffee shops, banquet halls, an aquarium, and an IMAX theater. The impressive aquarium houses 400 different species with a total of 20,000 fish.
it's an awesome building as modern architecture, and the view up there is fantastic! the prices are a little bit high (very high regarding the cheap but the quality things you cand find in the outskirts ok Seoul).
We went here on a Sunday and it was a beautiful day to be out with the family. We bought the tickets for the Wax Museum, SkyArt Gallery and Seaworld. Great choice. Imax theater shows are in Korean so its not meant for foreigners. The Wax Museum is great. They looked real and the 5D virtual show is the BEST! Seaworld is amazing and they are all indoor. We had the best time here!! The package ticket is cheaper. I will definitely recommend this place to others.
This is an expensive day for the whole family, but worthwhile if the weather outside is not cooperating.
We bought the 3 ticket: IMAX show, Aquarium and ride to the top of the building for viewing.
If aquarium is your heart's desire, skip the 63 Building and head to CoEx Aquarium, but the imax and the top make this a nice, full day in one spot. (with parking available!)
There is also a well-known buffet in the center of the building, with fresh seafood, sushi, and other ethnic food stations. As Korea goes, it is fine, but expensive. Compared to western standards, skip it.
We enjoyed the IMAX dolphin movie and awuarium, and the decor at hte top of 63 make this a more interesting view than NAmsan Tower downtown. The 63 is located on the island of Yeuido, which is also a nice place to take the family for kite-flying, bike riding on the Han River or a stroll.
63 Sky Art (Highest Art Museum in the World) for only Won 12,000 is a great value with an awsome panoramic view of one of the world's most exciting cities. Many other interesting attractions, shops and restaurants inside the 63 Building. Directly across the street is a beautiful river park which is the site of Seoul's Cherry Blossom Festival every April. Put this area on you list for a fun day's activity when visiting Seoul.
There is plenty to see and do at one of Seoul's tallest skyscrapers.
A trip to the observation deck is well worth the entrance fee, but make to go when the skies are clear. On a good day you can see out to Incheon airport.
There is an aquarium in the basement, the penguins are the popular and plenty of fish to see.
[However you will probably see more fish at the Noryangjin fish market just a few minutes drive away ]
The Food court is not the best, there aren't that many choices and it was mostly fast food style, but the buffet is supposed to be one of the best in town. It's open for lunch then re-opens in the evening for dinner.
There is also an IMAX cinema.
I recently visited Seoul and had an opportunity to dine at the Buffet Restaurant at 63 building.
All I can say is WOW!
Great food and chefs. There are western, korean, japaness and chinese sections. You can choose whatever you like.
Enjoyed the Japaness food department very much. If you love sushi or noodle dishes, it is the place to go.
It is fun to hang out in the building for Imax and shopping after the meal as well.
Do not miss it.
