The Guinness Book of Records certified Taipei's grandiose
financial centre, known as Taipei 101, as the world's tallest
building until 2009, when it was superseded by the Burj Khalifa in
Dubai. However, at more than 1671 feet (509m) high, and designed to
resemble a towering pagoda, this building will likely remain not
only the city's major landmark, but also an awesome tourist
attraction for generations to come. A trip up and down in one of
the super-fast lifts takes only minutes, and the view from the top
observation deck is predictably spectacular. The lower levels are
crammed with shops and restaurants.
