Legend has it that Taipei City began with just one immigrant nearly 200 years ago. On a dry lakebed, this man cleared some trees and bushes and built a farm. Soon, Taipei was rapidly growing in every direction. In 1949, two million people moved to Taiwan from China and the population began expanding quickly. This large amount of people helped turn Taipei into a world-class city.

Almost 50 years ago, farming made up 33 percent of Taiwan's economy. Nowadays, that figure is at two percent and falling fast. Most of the world only knew about China back then and had never even heard of Taiwan. Now, Taipei is known for producing semi-conductors, a necessary part in all kinds of computers. Taipei has found its place in the world because of these fingernail-sized chips. Very few places have come so far so fast. This month, National Geographic Channel looks at Taipei's rise in Megacities—Taipei.

传说台北市的发迹,是源自于近两百年前仅仅一位移民者而已。在一个干凅的湖床上,这名男子把树木、树丛清理干净,然后盖了一座田。不久,台北便朝各方面迅速发展。1949年,两百万人自中国迁移到台北,人口开始快速增加。大量的人口帮助台北转变成世界级的城市。

大约五十年前,农业占了台湾经济活动的百分之三十三。如今,这个数字只剩下两个百分比,而且还在快速下降中。当时世界上大部分国家只知道中国,根本没听说过台湾。现在,台北因制造各种计算机所需的半导体而名闻遐迩。因为这些指甲般大小的芯片,台北已在世界上找到立足之地。很少有地方能这么快就有这么长远的发展。本月份的国家地理频道,将在《超级城市——台北》中一探台北的兴盛。
