The distinctive five towers and colored domes of the Taipei City Sky Dome (????????) have become a landmark in Banciao. Generally, the air is too smoggy to see much of interest by day, but the wind from an approaching storm blew the thick layer of pollution away to reveal a surprisingly clear skyline today. We were lucky enough to see Taipei 101 from our rooftop and, at one point, we could see all the way to Danshui!
Joanna Rees took some fantastic photos from our roof and in our new apartment, while her husband, Range hovered precariously close to the edge of the building to get his photos of these busy roads at night. Check out Range’s photos over at The Memoirs.
Taipei 101 is a faint smudge on the skyline.
