Passionate about travel and with professional experience in global economic development, Michael Erin has visited locales in Asia such as Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, and Taipei.

Among the latter city’s beloved attractions is the Maokong Gondola, which starts at the Taipei Zoo station and travels above lush verdure to the historic village of Maokong. Those who truly want an adventure can travel in the retrofitted "crystal cabins,” which give travelers an immersive experience due to the cabins' glass bottoms. In addition to sampling food at the Maokong terminus, gondola riders are treated to an exceptional view of Taipei.

Those seeking an awe-inspiring view can also take an elevator ride to the top of the city’s tallest building, the Taipei 101, situated in the center of the trendy Xinyi district. Especially popular during New Year’s festivities, the building has 101 floors, one beyond the number 100, which traditionally represents perfection. Constructed at the turn of the millennium, the Taipei 101 is seen as representative of the city’s rapid progress at the dawn of the 21st century.
