Welcome to Taipei 101

Taipei 101

The Guinness Book of Records certified Taipei's grandiose financial centre, known as Taipei 101, as the world's tallest building until 2009 when it was superseded. However, at more than 1671 feet (509m) high, and designed to resemble a towering pagoda, this building will likely remain not only the city's major landmark, but also an awesome tourist attraction, for generations to come. A trip up and down in one of the super-fast lifts takes only minutes, and the view from the top observation deck is of course spectacular. The lower levels are crammed with shops and restaurants.
