Taipei 101 in 2007. At that time, it was the tallest in the world. Also, the elevators set a Guinness world record for being the fastest.

Sears Tower in Chicago. I hadn't planned it but just happened to be walking by and noticed it was the Sears Tower so went in and took the elevator to the top.

The CN Tower, the Empire State Building and the Stratosphere.

My wife and I had our wedding photos taken at the ESB after we were married in Manhattan.

The four tallest I've been to are the Eiffel Tower, the Empire State Building, the original World Trade Center in NYC, and the Hancock Bldg. in Chicago.

I've stayed at the Baiyoke Sky Hotel in Bangkok, Thailand, on the 68th floor of this 85 story building.

Been to the top of the Sears (now Willis) tower, Empire state building, and CN Tower. Not sure exactly which is taller between the Willis & CN (because I'm pretty sure Willis beats out the Empire State), but one of those 2.

The CN Tower is awesome. First time I was in Toronto, we just went up to the observation deck, second time I was there we had dinner at that rotating restaurant. Not sure if it's still there, last couple times I've just gone there by myself, so I just got out to the bars and stuff. First time taking that elevator up the side of the building was scary though!

The Empire State Building. I've been to the top of a few other tall structures but refused to go to the top of the World Trade Center during a family visit. I'm afraid of heights and taller was not better.
