Well... that's one of the toughest questions. There are so many, I'm not even gonna bother making a list.

But here are 2 that I really like:

Angkor Wat, Cambodia


La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona

Blue Mosque in Istanbul

Of the building Ive had the pleasure of seeing through nothing but air, it has to be Basilica di San Pietro and the Hungarian Parliament. Pictures dont do this building justice.

Building I like that I have yet to see are 2IFC, Central Plaza, Cheung Kong, Bank of China, HSBC, Kremlin, Forbidden city, Taj Mahal, Potala and Jin Mao. Many others too that I cant think of.

2IFC in HK is my favorite. Nothing like seeing that building up close waiting for the Star Ferry to take off to Kowloon. Just sheer height!
