WHAT THEY DIDN’T TELL YOU ABOUT TAIPEI 101

I thought going up the Elephant Hill was a fun adventure.

I know I read from some travel article that Elephant Hill has the best view of Taipei 101 and that it has a lot of stair steps. They also said it was quite a walk. I love walking. Like long strolls and getting lost on foot. I think I underestimated their adjectives.  It was exhausting! There were, like, 2000 steps (and I’m being modest about this)!

It was just too late to back out because it’s already getting dark and I have a magnificent mental picture of Taipei skyline. Needless to say, I got to the first viewing deck and that was it for me.

It took me a while before I can recuperate from the exhaustion so I had a chance to take in the view.  It was pretty amazing. The tower made the skyline very distinct. I think every city should have that signature tower or monument. Taipei 101 stood like an electric pagoda in the middle of a hazy high-rise city!

Then, I have to go down the steps again and it wasn’t easier.
