Fun facts about Taipei 101:
1. World’s Tallest Green Building
2. 508 meters high (1,667 feet)
3. Largest countdown clock (hence one of the top 10 destinations to celebrate NYE)
4. The pressure-controlled lift up takes a mere 40 seconds to get from ground level to the 89th-floor observation deck, at 1010m per minute

Railings are erected all around for safety reasons. To get this shot, Jem had to stick his camera out. Pretty precarious, but when you’re on the top, it’s inevitable to take risks sometimes.
