3.6 Million Visit New Lotte World Tower in 1st Month

The new Lotte World Tower skyscraper that opened on April 3 has attracted 3.62 million visitors so far, Lotte said Monday. That boils down to 130,000 visitors a day on weekdays and 200,000 on Saturdays and Sundays.

Choi Young at Lotte said the results surpassed expectations by 20 percent even though the number of Chinese visitors dropped drastically amid an unofficial Chinese boycott.

The 123-story skyscraper is the tallest building in Korea.

A total of 138,000 people came to visit the observation deck atop the tower, the third highest in the world. Thanks to the influx of visitors, Lotte World Mall across the street also saw revenues rise.
