hkskyline's 2008 - TAIPEI #3 : 101 Observation Deck

I watched Taipei 101 rise on my first visit to Taiwan in 2003. Now that it's complete, I was very excited to go up, even though the price was a bit steep.





Unfortunately the weather during my 3 week visit was horrible.





































Taipei is also a hilly city.











I've never seen a damper myself, and the 101 damper was fully open for public viewing. Quite an amazing structure.

















There is also an outdoor observation deck, which was a bit scary because of the wind. The wind was so strong it resonated around the metal structures, playing a rather eerie song.

















More photos in the next part!

Visibility wasn't so good that day due to the clouds. Perhaps it was 15km at most?
