I traveled to Taiwan in March 2005 during my Spring vacation. From Taipei to Taichung; from Kaohsiung to Hualien by bus, by small airplane and by train, it's really a fun trip. For better description, please visit http://www.lonelyplanet.com/destinations/north_east_asia/taiwan/
The worlds Tallest building at 508M. Officially called The Taipei Financial Center. At the bottom is the Taipei101Mall. The rest is office space. The observation deck on the 89th floor recently opened to the public. You are whisked up there by the world's fastest lifts.
