Grand Hotel, Taipei
The Grand Hotel, a Taipei landmark, is built on a hilltop in traditional Chinese palace architecture.
With the largest Chinese classical style roof in the world, vermilion pillars, stately archways, and brilliant roof tiles, it is quite spectacular.
First built in 1952, it underwent many additions and expansions until its completion in 1973. After a disastrous fire in 1995, the hotel was repaired, and reopened to the public in 1998.
