We came to Taipei a late Friday night, with tired feet and hair still sticky by sea salt. I had only been sightseeing in Taipei a short weekend before and had still seen very little. The two days in Taipei with mum we tried to cover at least some of the must see places. We started of course with the place you cannot avoid: Taipei 101, a previous highest tower of the world and the proud landmark of Taipei.
As the tower stands alone so you have a good view over the city. Try just to get there on a clear day!
If it is not stormy you can go out and feel the wind on you face on the highest reachable floor. This photo is take through the super secure fence:
Never ending staircase leading down. No, you don’t have to use your own legs to get ut, there are high-speed word record elevators to take care of that.
