Itinerary

Day 1

Meeting with your Tour guide/Assistant at Taipei 101 Mrt Station exit 5 (Red Line ) around 10.00. We will start with Taipei’s masterpiece: Taipei 101 tower.

The tour guide will lead you at the top of the tower to enjoy the stunning sightseeing of the capital from the second tallest tower in the world.

You will reach the top floor with the
fastest elevator in the world. The lifts take just 40 seconds from ground level to the 89th floor, situated at 382 mt and have atmospheric pressure regulatory systems to avoid discomfort (ears 'popping') for the occupants.

Taipei 101 is designed to withstand the typhoon winds and earthquake tremors that are common in the area east of Taiwan also thanks to its giant
Mass Dumper. Essentially acting as a giant pendulum, the enormous steel sphere moves slightly back and forth to counter any motion of the building itself. It is an engineering marvel meant to limit the vibrations of the 1,667-foot tall building.

Walking from 101 to the
Elephant Mountain we will stop for a cup of the famous Taiwanese Bubble Tea.
 

Elephant Mountain is one of the must-see place in Taipei, you will find yourself immerse in the nature just in the heart of the financial city . We will walk up to the top of the mountain and stay there to enjoy the sun going down on the beautiful Taipei. We will finish our tour tasting a delightful dinner around the mountain. Dinner is not included in the quotation and our assistant will suggest you the best place to eat following your needs.
