What people are saying:

Seattle Travel Notes | Amazon Headquarters Amazon Spheres If you come to Seattle to travel, you must visit the Amazon headquarters Amazon Spheres. Amazon headquarters is a landmark building built by Amazon in downtown Seattle at a cost of 4 billion US dollars. The facade is composed of three huge transparent glass spheres. In total, more than 2,600 glass panels were consumed, and the largest ball was 27 meters high. When you walk into this building, you will feel like you have passed from the hustle and bustle of the city to the mysterious Amazon jungle. Here, Amazon spent 7 years building a closed tropical rainforest. More than 40,000 hot plants from more than 30 countries are planted here. The building is divided into four floors. The first floor is surrounded by streams and gurgling streams. Around the plants. On the other side of the industrial-style staircase is a three-dimensional plant wall up to four floors. The equipment hidden on the wall sprays water mist every tens of seconds to maintain the indoor temperature and humidity for the growth of plants. On weekdays, this is the place where Amazon employees go to work and play. It is open to the public on two weekends every month.

    Sure, why not
