When it comes to the tallest skyscrapers in the world, there is always a race to the top. Different countries vie for the title of having the tallest skyscraper in the world, and this is often done by going higher and higher, but we are sure that’s not what Jackie Wilson was roaming about 😉

But as of 2022 these are the three highest rises in the World.

#1 Burj Khalifa


This astounding monument located in Dubai (GEO coordinates) measures 828 metres or 2717 ft and is the highest building the world (for now). Some incredible architectural design went into this beast that holds 163 floors.

#2 The Merdeka 118

This incredibly designed skyscraper is located in the heart of Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur (GEO coordinates) From foot to top it measures almost 679 metres or 2227 ft and is by far the highest building in Malaysia and the second highest in the world.
