Finally, on my 7th day being in Taipei I found the time for a visit to the infamous Taipei 101 currently the highest building in the world :-)
So I will add it to my list of "Been there, Done that" :-D
As you might know all basic university classes are marked as 101, Computer Programming 101, Anatomy 101, Micro economics 101, you name it.
In that sense the tower is indeed Taipei 101.
I was really amazed at how the elevetor got us 500+ meters up in 36 seconds, without the slightest sense of acceleration. They even adjust the air pressure as you go up, so that you are not disturbed. On the way down of course I felt the pressure change in my ears.
Moreover it has an open roof that you can visit, and it's really amazing.
