Taipei I-ling-i -- Sightseeing
Taipei I-ling-i (Taipei 101) is currently the tallest building in the world. It stands 509 m (1,671 ft) tall, and consists of 101 stories above ground. It has an interesting design, consisting of several sections stacked together (the picture tells more than I can describe it).
Visitors can go up to the top of the building to take in the view. This is fairly pricey, however, around $15 USD per person. So we contented ourselves with taking a picture inside the building, in front of the painting of the building itself.
Inside the building, the bottom several floors are a shopping mall. Generally, the more expensive stores can be found on the higher floors of the mall (near the ground level), while the more affordable stores are found on the bottom floors of the mall.
Above the mall floors, the rest of the building is filled with office space.
