Taipei 101 - The 6th Tallest Tower in the World

Taipei 101 (Chinese: 臺北101 / 台北101), formerly known as the Taipei World Financial Center, is a landmark skyscraper on earth with its 509 m height located in Xinyi District, Taipei, Taiwan. The building ranked officially as the world's tallest from 2004 until the opening of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai in 2010. It is higher than Tokyo Tower and N Seoul Tower but I do not want to spend NT$500 on the ticket. I prefer topping Tokyo Tower for 900yen and topping N Seoul Tower for 7,000 won. My mother, Sophia and I all think it's too expensive.

Anyway, I still love this place so much because there is a huge shopping mall filled with luxury designers. Everyone in Taiwan think Taipei 101 is the go to must see in Taipei. On January 28, 2012 my sister wanted to glance round Taipei 101. I drove my family to the building. I do not like to drive in Taipei and now you can take the red line to Taipei 101/World Trade Center Station. This building is amazing from far but it is incredible how many different stores and good restaurants are there. Like Dingxian101 which is on the 86th floor you can command views of Taipei City. You must not miss the boat. And I suggest building up your strength because the mall is too big to walk.
Taipei 101 is a place that you just simple must see. If you go to Taiwan and didn't get to go to Taipei 101, you need to tell the pilot to please turn around.
