Taipei 101, Xinyi District

#1 of 565 in Shopping in Taiwan
Shopping Mall · Architectural Building
An engineering wander constructed to defy cyclones and earthquakes, Taipei 101 held the honor as the tallest building in the world for six years until 2009. The architectural features and elements of the 509 m (1,700 ft) tall tower are fueled with symbolism. Notice how its design resembles an elongated pagoda or a bamboo stick--recalling growth. The number of levels (101) indicates striving for more than perfection, and the number of segments consisting of the same number of floors (eight) stands for good fortune and prosperity. However, its most popular element is the damper that defied the strongest typhoon in history (2015). The skyscraper houses a huge shopping mall on its first five floors, along with restaurants, clubs, and two observation decks on 89th and 91st floors.

  • Great building! Not only for business but also pleasure. :) there's a food hall in the basement with direct access to the MRT station. It's very convenient especially if you travel around.  more »
  • Taipei doesn't have many skyscrapers that is the reason you can find blue sky anytime whole 101 is visible from far, it has many restaurants, high end shopping brands etc. a perfect place for hangout.  more »
