Meet Taipei 101



The picture above was taken by my uncle who's a Math coach on one of his travels. This time around he went to Taipei to accompany students who were participating in a math Olympiad something. Anyway, that building is Taipei 101 located in Xinyi District. Accordingly, it is the World's tallest building since 2004 until the rise of the now record-holder Burj Khalifa in Dubai. The said building houses hundreds of offices, libraries, observatories, restaurants, fitness centers and other establishments. Its height is 1667ft and weighs 703,130 tons.

 Geezz I'm not afraid of heights but I guess this building is an exception. Imagine yourself at the roof top, no doubt your knees and every inch of your being will go wobbly and the whole world is shaking!
