Taipei is the capital, administrative, economic and cultural centre of Taiwan. This modern, commercial city of millions, has grown out of once small and quiet settlements to become one of Asia`s most modern cities. Skyscrapers, glass office towers and modern shopping malls are situated along wide, tree- lined boulevards where elegant restaurants, stylish nightclubs, bars and cafès are all part of people`s lives, yet everywhere the traditional culture and way of life carries on, and can be seen in the many ancient temples and historically important preserved sites. This modern city with old traditions is home to one of the world`s highest structures, the Taipei 101 Tower.
