Actually, Taipei 101 was very difficult to engineer because of the earthquake problem. I don't think it's feasible to have a lot of these buildings due to the cost. Taipei does have another big skyscraper, but big highrises are rare to come by. The city is very vibrant at the street level though. The food culture is quite big there.

You don't say...

Whilst the Malaysian tourism board and the like promote the views, the serene nature, the beautiful sights and such (Malaysia: Truly Asia), the Taiwanese tourism board promotional ad a couple of years back involved something along the lines of "Come try our food, enjoy our food, look, food, did I mention our food?" - and that was it.

Chongqing is very reminiscent of New York City.

Even in mainland China there are a lot of different types of cuisine. Taiwan is a little different in the way they present the food, among others. There are street markets that sell food, such as the one in Hsimending, where vendors hawk everything from hotpot to desserts.

Yea I'd agree with that ~ that's the only pic of Chongqing I'd seen, and now that I've seen others it doesn't look anything like NY.
