Taking the lift up the world's tallest building

This photo is supposed to uploaded later, but i could not resist putting it here, so that u can compare the difference between going up and going down, it actually takes a much longer time to travel down than to travel up. i dunno why, but it could be due to the mechanics of the whole system and such.

A display proclaiming the elevator as the world's fastest elevator travelling at the speed of 1010m/s. taken on the 89th floor.

This display is shown in the lift when u take the lift up the building. The lift is super fast, and it only takes 37 seconds to travel from the 5th floor to the 89th floor. The downside? you have to pay to take this lift, it costs NTD350 to take the lift up to the 89th floor, but with the special student discount, we paid NTD300 each. (after conversion, approx S$14 per head)
