7D6N Tour to Taiwan (Taipei 101), Day 6 - Taipei IOI

Throwback to 18 December 2015
Day 6

Our last full-day at Taiwan! The holiday trip had thus far been relaxing. We had lots of rest through the night. Took our own sweet time to complete breakfast and having absolutely no itinerary to rush to complete. 

To complete our Taiwan experience, we went to the iconic Taipei 101 skyscraper.

Hi mascot, are you looking for your "key"?

Oh, you have a tail!


After getting immuned to the 360-degree breathtaking view of the city, we took a look at the exhibit on the building's tuned mass damper, also known as a harmonic absorber, which serves to minimise the amplitude of mechanical vibrations. Taipei 101's damper was the largest in the World.

We walked into the Taipei World Trade Center 台北世界貿易中心, which was just beside Taipei 101. Coincidentally, the main hall was hosting a baby fair. We were super tempted, but decided not to, since we would definitely not be dragging baby goods back on flight.

And our Taiwan journey comes to a happy ending :)
