A Glimpse of Taipei 101

Taipei 101 Building

The international landmark of Taipei City, one of the tallest building in the world. The exterior design is like a shape of a bamboo, symbolizing the periods of time as step-by-step struggle for improvement. It was acoomplished in 2003 with the height of 508m and has 101 stories. Tourists can take the fastest elevator in the world to the top for viewing the whole Taipei.

Below is a compilation clip of our visits in observatory deck, and capturing the fastest elevator. Enjoy!

Yes yes yes I can see the shape of the bamboo. I like this building very much. Good how you captured the sun glinting on the ledges as the building goes up.

I'm a huge fan of Taipei 101 and was probably a bit overexcited about visiting my first time a few weeks ago...

Will visit Taipei next year to attend my friend's wedding. I told her that I want to go to Taipei 101, the second tallest man-made building.

Nice capture. Can't open the video, must be the problem of my browser since 2 days ago.
