On our first weekend in Taiwan, right after the destructive Taifun "Morakot", we had the chance to get to the world tallest building, the "Taipei 101" with its unique architecture in a shape of a bamboo stick. The top of the skyscraper offers every visitor a breathtaking view over Taipei city. Worth to see it!
