One of the best ways to experience a city or destination is to see it from high above. Now, unless you’re flying in a helicopter or hanging out with Tom Cruise, the only other way to do this is to visit an observation deck.

Nearly every major city has at least one, whether it be atop the world’s tallest skyscraper or a local building with a great vantage point to see the city.

Here’s a look at some of the best views post on Instagram from observation decks around the world.
