Taipei 101, Xinyi District

3.5
#1 of 396 in Shopping in Taiwan
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.

  • Beautiful experience in the largest building. Particularly fast elevator (60 km per hour). Well groomed and good explanation. Particular the ball that hangs about the above as counterweight in earthquakes. Beautiful piece of architecture. 1st floors with super beautiful trendy shops. Recommended.
