Apple today threw open its first retail store in Taiwan open to customers at 11:00 am (Taiwan time) on July 1. The company’s first store in the region is located on the ground floor and basement of Taipei 101, and, is aptly named Apple Taipei 101.
The store is based on the company’s latest retail store design and features dedicated space for its “Today at Apple” programs. Paper-cutting artist Yang Shih-Yi was also there to celebrate the opening of the store and he showed a huge banyan tree cutout which is considered as a welcome sign in the culture.
Thanks to our team and all the customers who celebrated the opening of our first store in Taiwan today! https://t.co/Oj51WaBi2u

In typical Apple Store opening style, thousands of customers had started lining up outside the store from Friday evening itself, with the opening day seeing thousands of customers coming to the store to check out Apple’s latest products.
It was only last month that Apple opened its first retail store in Singapore which attracted thousands of visitors on launch day. Apple has been revamping its retail stores across the world to make them a meeting point for people rather than just being a store.
