Over the years Kim and I have stopped by many tall skyscrapers to visit observation decks on their higher-up floors. It’s definitely an interesting and different way to see & view a city.
We’ve visited observation decks in places like Auckland, Bratislava, Chicago, Kuala Lumpur, New York, Singapore, Sydney, Tokyo and many others.
When flying Delta, Kim and I along with many other people love getting Biscoff cookies in Sky Clubs and on flights. I’d guess that most people associate Biscoff with Delta in a similar way that a warm chocolate chip cookie makes me think of DoubleTree Hotels.
You might be wondering why I am talking about tall buildings and cookies?Usually these two things have little to nothing in common. However, I came across a very interesting graphic by Delta Airlines. In this graphic they show how many Biscoff cookies it would take to reach the top of the 5 tallest skyscrapers in the world. (I first came across the graphic on Delta’s Facebook page and also spotted it on their blog Taking Off.)
Here is the graphic:
Along with the graphic, Delta asked:
How many Biscoff cookies does it take to reach the top of the tallest buildings in the world? We’ve got the answer. Tell us about the tallest building you’ve ever been in and plan a visit today?
Here are the Top 5 Tallest Skyscrapers and number of Biscoff cookies needed to reach the top (image from left to right):
- Burj Khalifa, Dubai, UAE- 2,722 feet- 9,332 Biscoff Cookies
- Makkah Royal Clock Tower Hotel, Mecca, Saudi Arabia- 6,761 feet Biscoff Cookies
- One World Trade Center, New York, USA- 1,776 feet- 6,089 feet Biscoff Cookies
- Taipei 101, Taipei, Taiwan- 1,671 feet- 5,729 Biscoff Cookies
- Shanghai World Financial Center, Shanghai, China- 1,614 feet- 5,533 Biscoff Cookies
What’s the tallest skyscraper that you’ve visited?
I visited the tallest building in the world, the Burj Khalifa before it was completed. It was known then as the Burj Dubai. I didn’t get to go inside but was driven to the construction site which was really interesting to see.
