Taipei 101

12 May 2009

Wouldn’t you be super excited to be able to see and go up the tallest building in the world?!?!?!

First sight of Taipei 101 from far, far away.

Yeah, me neither.  But, I did it anyway.

Getting closer.

Getting closer.

Have to say one of the most impressive parts was the mall insdie the first 5 floors of the Taipei 101.

Right up front.

Right up front.

At the top, it was just like climbing up Namsan Tower here in Seoul or Petřin Hill in Praha to see the ubiquitous and indistinguishable city lights below.

Taipei at night.

Taipei at night.


But, I can say the elevator ride was pretty sweet.  Fastest in the world too.  Ascends 88 floors in 33 seconds.  That’s twice as fast as my building’s elevator gets me to the 8th floor.
