GOING UP: The race is on to build the highest structure of this millennium. Shanghai's giant-in-progress, the 460-m World Financial Center, is vying to take the World's Tallest title from the suddenly puny 452-m Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur. Meanwhile, Melbourne's Grollo Tower, a 560-m megalith, is slated for completion in December. With information laid out on virtual floors, this well-designed website provides a front-row seat to the challenge.


Note: The site is currently inaccessible. We will update this link when the site is re-launched. In the meantime, you can contact the site's publishers at: Travelers' Century Club, P.O. Box 7050, Santa Monica, CA 90406-7050; Fax: 310-395-9511; E-mail:

MILE HIGH: This exclusive association grants membership only to travelers who have visited at least 100 countries. To find out if you qualify for the club, which was founded in Los Angeles in 1954, refer to the group's website for its list of 309 "countries" (allow for geographical license: some islands are counted as separate countries), its hall of fame (club record holder Gloria Olsen has visited more than 300 listed spots) and its planned outings to remote places.
