In terms of tourist destination, Taiwan has always been a hidden gem in Asia, and has been gradually discovered in recent years for its rich tourism resources.

With nearly ten million residents, Taipei is not only filled with an energetic metropolitan vibe, but its rich cultural atmosphere and local people’s friendliness has great appeal to many international travellers looking for diverse travel experience.

Aaron Chan, chairman of Riant Capital, confirmed the project is scheduled to be completed in 2020.

He added: “While social media and online sharing economy are reshaping the global tourism industry, we find this as a unique opportunity and attempt to go a step further.

“Travelers nowadays are tired of the conventional hotel experience but are still unsure about the consistency of what online short-term lodging offers.

“We believe this is where the opportunity lies.

“We want to create a product that is experiential and exciting, and at the same time consistent and operationally well run.”

Chan aims to not only build Taiwan’s next-generation landmark skyscraper of innovation, efficiency, and sustainability, but also a diversified lifestyle luxury destination in Taipei that caters to high-end travellers from around the globe.
