Located in Xinyi District, Taipei City, Taiwan Province, Taipei 101 was considered to be the world’s tallest building until 2010. It is calculated by the standards set by the world’s authoritative building agency, the World Association of High-Rise Buildings. Standing at a height of 508 meters, Taipei 101 is the fifth tallest building in the world today.
The building is similar to a gathering of the people. Those who come here can have a good time without losing any money. In addition, you can go to the top and view the entire city of Taipei. There is also a wonderful sky view of the mountains.
Taipei 101 Building is located in Taipei’s Xinyi District. It is composed of 14 companies from Taiwan Province of China. The Taipei Financial Building Co. Ltd, together with the professional team outside the island was planned by international architects. Li Zuyuan and Wang Chongping jointly designed the traditional Chinese auspicious number “8” (harmony) as the design unit. Each of the eight floors is a structural unit that is connected to each other and stacked on top of each other to form a whole. Taipei 101 was the world’s tallest building before 2010 (508 meters). It is currently ranked fifth in the world’s top ten buildings.
Taipei’s iconic building, Taipei 101, makes for a beautiful sight. To get there, I took the MRT Xinyi Line from Taipei Station to Xiangshan Station. I climbed to the highest point of the Xiangshan Mountain and then climbed onto a boulder. From there, I was able to photograph a night panorama of the Taipei 101 building. You can climb to the very top of the mountain, step by step, by taking the Taipei MRT Xinyi Line to Xiangshan Mountain. Then you walk to the mountain trail. The two best viewing spots are the Yixian Pavilion and the Six Giant Stones. What’s more, the lights in the Taipei 101 building are a different colour every night. From Monday to Friday it is lit red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple respectively.
The Taipei 101 Building, which integrates offices, an observation deck, and a shopping mall, is a landmark in Taipei and one of the must-see in Taipei. Every year, the New Year’s Eve party in Taipei is centered on the fireworks show of Taipei 101. The New Year's fireworks and the surrounding New Year's activities attract hundreds of thousands of people every year, making it a world famous New Year's event.
