Kahlua on the 89th Floor
Taipei 101 is the world's tallest building, thus snagging the title of highest occupied floor too. A few weeks into my sojourn into the motherland, I sat in the 89th floor observatory (probably the highest point you can go in a manmade building) eating "Big Tom" Kahlua ice cream by myself. I paid probably NT$ 300 for the privilege of looking out on Taipei on a rainy day, and NT$100 with coupon for the ice cream. This past Tuesday I worked a Schneider Electricity event on the 84th floor of Taipei 101 and got to enjoy all of that for free. We also got to ride the service elevator, which goes directly from B2 to 89. The tourist elevator only goes from 4th floor to 89. My ears popped probably 8 times going up.
