My hotel in Taipei has a 13th floor, but no 4th; four being an extremely unlucky number in Chinese culture, whereas thirteen holds no special significance.

I find it interesting that, though different, we have equal levels of superstition that would seem to negate each other. How can the 13th floor really be so unlucky if every tall building in Asia has one?
