Tun Mustapha Tower

This extraordinary 30 storey glass tower was constructed over thirty years ago. It is the tallest building on Borneo island. The construction is very unusual in that the floors are suspended by steel cables from the top of the central core pillar and I think, half way down. This has a strange effect when you are standing in the building. You get a what I can only describe as a "wobbling" sensation through your feet. Very odd!!!

There is a revolving restaurant at level 18 with this view towards the newer government building constructed to house the original occupants of the tower. I don't blame them for moving out!!! The funny feeling in your feet is very distracting!!!
