The Taipei 101 (Chinese: ??101; pinyin: Táib?i y? líng y?; stylized as TAIPEI 101), formerly called the Taipei World Financial Center (????????), is a supertall skyscraper designed by C.Y. Lee and C.P. Wang in Xinyi, Taipei, Taiwan. This building was officially classified as the world's tallest from its opening in 2004 before the 2010 completion of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, UAE.
Its elevators, capable of traveling 60.6 km/h (37.7 mph) and used to transport passengers in the 5th to 89th floor in 37 seconds, set new records upon completion. In 2011 Taipei 101 received a Platinum rating under the LEED certification system to become the tallest and largest green building in the world. The arrangement regularly appears as an icon of Taipei in international media, and the Taipei 101 fireworks displays are a regular feature of New Year's Eve broadcasts.
The Canton Tower (Chinese: ???), officially Guangzhou TV Astronomical and Sightseeing Tower (Chinese: ???????????), is a 604-meter (1,982 feet )-tall multipurpose monitoring tower in the Haizhu District of Guangzhou (alternatively romanized as Canton).

The tower briefly held the title of tallest tower in the world, replacing the CN Tower, before being surpassed by the Tokyo Skytree. It was the tallest structure in China prior to the topping out of the Shanghai Tower on 3 August 2013, and is now the second tallest tower and the fourth-tallest freestanding structure in the world.Source: Wikipedia
