Breeze Nanshan

Mall in Xinyi

Housed in the new, sleek, sexy black tower is Taipei Nanshan Plaza, the only building (at 272m) to give Taipei 101 a run for its money in the height stakes. This luxury mall is like stepping into the pages of a Cosmopolitan magazine. The ground floor boasts top-end brands such as Manolo Blahnik shoe wear and Japanese perfume brands.

Head to the east side of the commercial tower to take some Matrix-inspired shots. The steakhouse and bar on the 47th floor offers some close-up and breath-snatching views of Taipei 101.
