There are such thrill in travelling especially to high places, but not all people are up for the adventure. There are people who suffer acrophobia and are terribly afraid of heights, which could be quite unfortunate since tall buildings and high peaks can offer the best panoramic views of any given place or city. When you’re visiting Asia and you’re the kind to visit the high places, here are our own pick to the gravity-defying places you need to check out in Asia.
Mount Huashan, China
Mount Huashan is the sacred mountain in China with 5 peaks, and by going to the top of it is the ultimate way to experience sacredness. You’ll ride a cable car up to 7000 feet of Mount Huashan and upon reaching there is allowed to walk with harness in the world’s most dangerous hike, the Plank Walk. A good buddy of mine that owns (https://www.cdmwastemanagement.com/) was having none of this “tourist attraction” on our trip to China. He decided to stay on solid ground while some other friends went up the mountain. At the peak of the mountain is a small shrine for the culmination of your effort but be warned because this place can be extremely full packed.
Burj Khalifa, Dubai
Burj Khalifa in Dubai is known not only for its elaborate architecture, but also for being the tallest building in the world. It houses 160 floors but the observation deck is on the 148th floor and offers a breathtaking view and is called At The Top. Aside from the courage to go up a stunning height of 1,821 feet above the ground, you also need to have a lot of money to do so since it’s also the most expensive observatory deck, although some says it’s worth it with the 360 degree fascinating view of the city and high technology multimedia presentations.
Langkawi Skybridge, Malaysia
Ever dream of being on top of a lush tropical paradise and getting a bird’s eye-view of the luscious green forest all around? You can now, eventually, do that by visiting the Langkawi Skybridge in Malaysia, which is a curved, cable-stayed bridge more than 2000-feet above sea level. The height can be very intimidating but it’s a family-friendly bridge offering safe experience while you gaze over the scenery.
Tokyo Skytree, Japan
This distinctive tower in Japan is not only the tallest tower in the whole world but also a stable broadcasting provider. It displaced the Canton Tower in China and is second tallest structure in the world. Its architectural design was carefully planned creating a fusion of high technology and traditional Japanese culture especially on its unique color “aijiro” which mixes a hint of blue dye to the white color to achieve a pale blue glow.
