The Taipei 101
Maps Taipei 101

Taiwan Island lies in the Pacific Ocean, off the coast of mainland China. The island has towering mountain cliffs, farmland, and tropical forests.

It also has extreme weather and frequent earthquakes. About twenty earthquakes hit Taiwan each month. This does not make the island an ideal spot for one of the world’s tallest skyscrapers. Yet in the capital city of Taipei, Taipei 101 rises 1,667 feet (508 m)-an engineering and architectural wonder.

Taipei 101 glows above the Taipei skyline at night.
