I am big fan of tall buildings. So far, I have covered World Trade center (New York, during 2001 June 🙁 Sniff …), Empire State Building, Sears/Willis Tower, Petronas Towers, 2 IFC, Burj Khalifa Etc.
Taipei 101 is another notch in my wish-list and the long-term plan. Unlike Manhattan or Dubai, Taipei 101 does not have too many nearby competition (I.e. Other tall buildings). I visited this magnificent building both during night as well as daytime. Taipei 101 is quite easy to get to, covered by the Taipei MRT (Metro). As is usual with tall buildings, there is a big mall at the bottom. The building has a huge Wind Damper, as can be seen in the photo below. Also, in front of the building, they have a nice display of an artwork made with elevator cables.
