As a new expat to TaiPei I was surprised that I seemed to be the only expat who was aware of it's existence! Nonetheless my roommate and I went to the Saturday night performance mostly unsure of what to expect. It was wildly entertaining! As expats living in Asia we've seen our fair share of Chinese lion dances. This one... More

Oftentimes you've seen one of these shows, then you've seen them all, but this show still had some surprises. There were many amazing acrobatic feats, and the Beijing opera after intermission was not at all earsplitting, but instead very enjoyable and easy to follow. The story was fun, the costumes were well done, and it was a great time.

Taipei eye is a modestly priced evening event, ($550 NTD.) reservations are not required. But we went during the slow season. Reservations can be made on their website. This year Some of the performers were in the foyer putting on their makeup make for the visitors. (They were not doing this in 2013 when we were there.). We were able... More

We finally went to Taipei Eye and it was wonderful! The tickets can be purchased ahead of time in their English website, which is very helpful. This little auditorium is small enough that everyone will get a good seat, but big enough that there's room for many people. As you enter, you are welcomed by many ushers, who give you... More

It was a good experience, that fact that it is adjacent to a mall, cinema complex and arcade makes it quite fun for families.

It opens at 11am, better to be early as it is a popular destination for tour buses. Once tour groups arrive, they come in the dozens!! Thus queuing for the tickets and lift, up and down can be fairly long.

While vacationing in Taipei, we took our two young kids (four and seven) to the Saturday night show at Taipei Eye. The show was excellent. Our kids loved it. The Saturday show is actually two parts: first half before intermission is a Lion Dance show; second half is a Chinese Opera show. We enjoyed both parts. What's really neat about... More
