Taipei 101

The most famous sight in Taipei is 'Taipei 101' basically the tallest building in the city. It houses a shopping mall, offices, observation deck, and a few restaurants. It's also got the fastest lift in the world and a significant 'wind damper' inside (which, unbeknownst to me is common in all tall buldings). This one is unusual because it is on display to the public. We spent a while wandering around taking in the view, stopped off for a drink at coco, finished off our take away breakfast, browsing around the supermarket inside before heading back out and off to get ready for another night market (and lots of eating!) FromTaipei City Hall station you can get a free shuttle bus to the building. Out of exit 2 take 101 free shuttle bus (labelled in English).






That's pretty darn fast!
