You should try the super speed of the elevator, but ironically you may also feel the money "burn" so fast. Depends on weather, you are going to see the amazing Taipei city night view from the top. You can have a good view on the...More

You can’t discuss about it. It’s simply wow. It’s huge. You came out from MRT and it’s there. No words. Must see. Honestly i didn’t enjoy so much going up, the skyline of Taipei isn’t special.

The best way to get around is to take the bus or the mrt. Try google maps, we swear by it. Even with the language barrier it's spot on and accurate.
