Which is the highest place in Taipei? A city always has its own city landmarks. When I visited the urban area of Taiwan, I saw a tall building, the Taipei 101. It is considered to be the tallest building in Taipei, just like the Oriental Pearl of Shanghai. You need to go up to the fifth floor to buy tickets. They cost NT$600 and HKD120. From the fifth floor, it takes only 37 seconds to reach the highest point, which is about 380 meters. It moves at an average rate of 10 meters per second all the way up to the 89th floor. Here, there is a 360-degree view from the Panoramic Viewing Platform, allowing you to see Taipei without anything in the way. There is a huge screen that features notes that talk about the different famous buildings in Taipei. You can visit Taipei as per your needs.
