Sights to See: Taipei 101, Taipei, Taiwan


Taipei 101  in Xinyi District.  This landmark skyscraper was the world's tallest from 2004 until 2010, when the Burj Khalifa opened in Dubai.  In 2011 it became the tallest and largest green building in the world, with eco-friendly double windows tinted to reflect UV.  It has 101 floors above ground and 5 floors underground, and a multi-level shopping mall adjoins with hundreds of stores, restaurants, and clubs.  This landmark can be seen from around the city and was even visible way across town from my hotel room.
