Na­tional Palace Mu­seum, 101 in global top 500 sights

The China Post - - LOCAL -

Two of Tai­wan’s pop­u­lar tourist at­trac­tions, the Na­tional Palace Mu­seum and Taipei 101, have been named among the World’s top 500 sights in Lonely Planet’s Ul­ti­mate Travelist 2015.

Travel web­site Lonely Planet has cre­ated a list­ing of 500 places that trav­el­ers must visit, in which the Na­tional Palace Mu­seum and Taipei 101 are ranked No.397 and No.448, re­spec­tively.

Lonely planet said that the Na­tional Palace Mu­seum owns many of the best Chi­nese artis­tic works such as Ming dy­nasty porce­lain and an­cient paint­ings that were brought from China by the Kuom­intang gov­ern­ment led by Chi­ang Kai-shek dur­ing the Chi­nese Civil War.

Taipei 101, like a mag­nif­i­cent glass pagoda, tow­ers over Taipei’s skyline. Although it is no longer the tallest build­ing in the world, its ob­ser­va­tory on the 89th floor pro­vid­ing an un­ob­structed view of Taipei in all di­rec­tions is the best place for visi­tors to en­joy the fan­tas­tic scenery, ac­cord­ing to the Lonely planet.
