#ACRTW – A tour of Taipei 101.

Living in a city with a fairly tall tower myself I of course had to pay a visit to the famous Taipei 101

Taipei 101 by Day

The architects who designed this monolith cleverly stuck a mall in front of it that you’re forced to walk through to get to the tower. Evil!

Facing Northwest from the 89th Floor

Facing northwest from the 89th-floor gallery. That building with the yellow roof is the Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall. The large domed structure behind it is the Taipei Arena, and just a bit further down the street is my hotel. Can you see it?

The Very Top of Taipei 101

Two floors up on the 91st is an outdoor observation deck — surprisingly calm until you realize there are guards keeping people from the windward side.

Artsy Shot

But there was this odd whistling sound that you can hear above.

Another Nokia N86 money shot: Taipei 101

You can thank my N86 on loan from Nokia for the awesome pics. More on that in a future post…
