Top 10 World’s Tallest High-rise Buildings

by jaysonv on 04/01/10 at 4:32 am

Here are the list of amazing top 10 tallest high-rise building in the world.

The tallest structure in the world is Burj Dubai which is located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Its height holds a breaking record of 2,684 ft. Followed by the second world’s tallest building Taipei 101 which has 1,671 ft. I am lucky because I was able to visit the world’s 4th and 5th tallest building which is the Petronas Twin Tower in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
