Taipei 101: Tallest Building in the World (2004-2010)
When we were flying from Jakarta to New York with Eva Air on May 2013, we were forced to transit overnight in Taipei. The only connecting flight to New York would be available on the next evening. We warmly welcomed the delay, since it gave us an opportunity to visit Taipei 101, the tallest building in the world from 2004 until the completion of Burj Khalifa in Dubai in 2010. Not to mention that hotel and food were provided by the airline.
The Taipei 101 tower comprises 101 floors above ground and 5 floors underground. It was not only the first building in the world to break the half-kilometer mark in height, but also formerly the world’s tallest building from March 2004 to 10 March 2010.
