Shangri-La Far Eastern Taipei
If you travel to an unfamiliar city, you should have plenty of time to explore it. But if it rains heavily and the hotel you stay in is as impressing as Shangri-La Far Eastern Taipei, then it may be difficult to leave the hotel at all. Shangri La is very impressing in many ways. It is the tallest hotel of the city with 43 floors, the view from there is breathtaking, the rooms are very large and the service is excellent . We felt very comfortable so that we didn’t leave it at all for one day.
Just by entering the lobby you will recognize the enormous dimensions which include the entire ground floor. There, western and traditional far eastern decor meet and form a harmonious symbiosis. This is carried on through the entire hotel. For example, beneath the Italian restaurant on the 38th floor there are a Japanese one and two Chinese ones. We chose the Cantonese Shang Palace, and we can only suggest you to try the Peking duck, because it is even cut directly at your table.
There are also three bars in the hotel of which we especially want to recommend you the Marco Polo Lounge. It is on the 38th floor, its facade is completely glazed, young DJs present their music at weekends and guest barkeepers from all over the world mix their signature cocktails
