Conquering heights at the Eureka Skydeck

Before visiting this place, I was never curious as to why they labeled it as “eureka”. Maybe I got lost in all the planning. When we finally reached the place and the floor, I did have that eureka moment. It dawned on me why such a label, and it’s no wonder why. It is indeed true that it is “an experience above all else”. The view was just fantastic. And I bet that you might just conquer some heights at this skydeck.

Yep, 88 stands for the floor level. 88 floors up in just a matter of seconds. The elevator was so fast, I felt like I could float. Haha.

As much as I wanted to take a photo of the city at night time, the glass was there again. They do have this open area where you could take an unobstructed view. It was secured with railings and all. I just didn’t dare to bring my camera out for fear of having it fall off. The view was real nice though, and the wind action was really present at that section.

I know…this is such a blurry photo that’s not justifying the beauty of the building. It’s better to view it in real life because you’ll be able to see the gold details atop.

I bet you’ll have that eureka moment too when you get here. The view was just awesome that if given the chance to go again, I probably would. I might choose going during daylight, and try the Edge Experience next time. Most definitely, that is not for the faint-hearted and those with fear of heights. BUT with the amazing view of the skydeck alone, they might just conquer their fear and brave through it. 😉
