Taipei 101(台北101)

Visiting Taipei 101 in Taiwan was the best thing ever. You get to see a clear 360 view of everything from up there, and I mean everything! High-powered binoculars, souvenir shops and drink bars are available for visitors so that they can have a memorable time there. Located in No. 45, Shifu Rd., Xinyi District, Taipei City, it opens daily from 9am-10pm. Moreover, there are Night Markets nearby for you to grab your dinner! (Check out my previous posts on Taiwan’s Night Markets for a review.)

View of the tower while heading there. That’s tall, isn’t it? In fact, its about 508 meters (1,671 feet) tall!

 

The first few floors in Taipei 101 consists of restaurants, a food court, library and a shopping mall (Taipei 101 Mall) that markets several designer goods. The lifts at Taipei 101 are the longest and fastest that goes at 1010m/ min which is 60.6km/ hr! So incredible.

What a beautiful view from the top of the tower. I could stare at this for hours and never get bored. If it’s your first time in Taiwan, it is mandatory have this iconic landmark marked on your to-do list!
