Taipei 101 is the city's financial centre and was once the world's tallest building. Designed to resemble a gigantic bamboo stalk, it is Taipei's major landmark. There are observation decks on the 88th and 89h floors.

The building's lift takes a thrilling 40 seconds to get from ground level to the 89-th floor, where a spectacular view awaits visitors. Decent restaurants and some of the city's swankiest malls make up the lower levels.
