"Taipei 101-- second-tallest building in the world" Taipei 101 Tip by rkearns
Taipei 101, Taipei: 51 reviews and 146 photos
A must-see, this building is impressive, to say the least.
Go to the observation deck on floor 89 (there are 101 floors in total). The cost is around 400NTD which is about $13USD. (2011)
Sometimes the outdoor observation deck is closed due to weather, but you can still have a 360 degree view from inside. There are historical facts about Taiwan, as well as an audio tour that comes with the price of entry.
Taipei 101 has the fastest elevator in the world, traveling about 37 mph. The trip to the observation deck from the main floor takes about 20 seconds!!!
Also, if you happen to be in Taipei for the new year, there is a spectacular firework show that is displayed at the building itself, literally shot off the building. Photos just don't do it justice. Yay Republic of China!!
