Taipei (/ˌtaɪˈpeɪ/), officially known as Taipei City (Chinese: 臺北市 or 台北市; pinyin: Táiběi Shì; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Tâi-pak Chhī), is the capital of Taiwan (officially the Republic of China). Situated at the northern tip of Taiwan, Taipei is located on the Tamsui River; it is about 25 km (16 mi) southwest of Keelung, a port city on the Pacific Ocean. It lies in the Taipei Basin, an ancient lakebed bounded by the two relatively narrow valleys of the Keelung and Xindian rivers, which join to form the Tamsui River along the city's western border. The city proper is home to an estimated 2,693,672 people. Taipei, New Taipei, and Keelung together form the Taipei–Keelung metropolitan area with a population of 6,900,273, the 40th most-populous urban area in the world. They are administered under three municipal governing bodies. "Taipei" sometimes refers to the whole metropolitan area, while "Taipei City" refers to the city proper. Taipei City proper is surrounded on all sides by another city called New Taipei.

 

Taipei is the political, economic, and cultural center of Taiwan. Considered to be a global city, Taipei is part of a major industrial area. Railways, high-speed rail, highways, airports, and bus lines connect Taipei with all parts of the island. The city is served by two airports – Taipei Songshan and Taiwan Taoyuan.

Taipei from the Elephant Mountain.

The highest tower is named 101. (simple,to the number of floors)

It's opened in 2004. Then it was the highest building of the world.

You can go (almost) to the top, with elevators with the impressive speed of 60,5 km/h.

That's much easier then all the steps on Elephant Mountain !

Please click to ENLARGE (and F11) Thank you in advance.

Taipei 101 (Chinese: 臺北101 / 台北101), stylized as TAIPEI 101, formerly known as the Taipei World Financial Center, is a landmark supertall skyscraper in Xinyi District, Taipei, Taiwan. The building was officially classified as the world's tallest in 2004, and remained such until the opening of Burj Khalifa in Dubai in 2010. In 2011, the building was awarded the LEED platinum certification, the highest award according the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) rating system, and became the tallest and largest green building in the world.

The National Theatre and National Concert Hall are twin performing arts venues at Liberty Square in Zhongzheng District, Taipei, Taiwan. Completed in 1987, the landmarks stand on the south and north sides of the square with Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall to the East. Together the venues are referred to by the abbreviation NTCH.

 

The predominant colors are red and gold, which are auspicious in Chinese culture. The theatre is used for performances such as music and drama.
