Taipei Population: 2,650,000
Right: Taipei 101, it's a long way up!
Taipei, (literally northern Taiwan) is the first port of call for most visitors to Taiwan. Strangely, it took me more than six years make it up there. After so long languishing in the south a visit was probably well overdue and so when some friends mentioned going up for a family outing I decided to tag along.
The main objective of our day trip was to visit the recently completed Taipei 101, currently the tallest building in the world.
Taipei 101 is 508 metres tall, has 198,347 m2 (2,336,000 sq. ft.) of office space, 77,033 m2 (796,000 sq. ft.) of retail space, and 83,000 m2 (893,000 sq. ft.) of parking space for more than 1,800 vehicles.!
