What is the tallest building in your hometown❓
While MahaNakhon Building is the tallest one in Bangkok, we couldn’t skip its Taiwanese brother – iconic Taipei 101.
Would you like more about the skyscraper behind us❓ Find some interesting facts below:
🏙 Taipei 101 is the former tallest building in the world, holding that honor for 5 years since 2004
📈 The building stands 508 meters (1667 feet) tall, it's the first building on the planet that breaks half kilometer mark
🥇Taipei 101 is still the tallest building built in an earthquake zone
🎵 Taipei 101 is currently the only skyscraper in the world that has concerts held on the rooftop
💮 Number 4 is considered unlucky in Chinese culture, as the pronunciation of this number is similar to the word death in Chinese, and for this reason there's no 44th floor in the tower, the lost floor is replaced by level 43, with the level 42A replacing actual level 43 to compensate for the skipped floor number.
⏱ Taipei 101 had been having the world's fastest elevators for 10 years, until in 2014 when the elevators in Shanghai Tower set a new record. The elevators can transport tourists from level 5 to the observatory on level 89 in just 37 seconds.
Hopefully you learn something interesting from our post! It was very fun to take this shot 😆 Two uncles walking around holding hands in front of their tripod made young Instagrammers curious and laugh. Well, we don’t mind 🌈♥️

An asexual person is not sexually attracted to individuals; but that doesn't mean that they're incapable of having a romantic relationship #AsexualFacts#TheHumsafarTrust

"Being a asexual, I'm not abstaining from sexual activity and I don't have a low libido. I'm simply not sexually attracted to you, but that does not mean I need to be fixed! And just because I'm asexual, it doesn't mean that I can't be in a relationship!" -Anonymous
Have a great day 😀
