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

Really good introduction to Chinese Opera - watched the actors being made up and preparing for the performance. Subtitles meant we understood the dialogue on stage, amazing acrobatics and juggling in addition to the music/ singing. Well worth a visit.

Our family of four loved seeing The Lion Dance at Taipei Eye and that includes my 12 year old son and my 70 year old mother, who both sat with grins throughout the show. We were charmed by the performances and in awe at the costumes and acrobatic feats. As we sat in the front row, both my mum and... More

Our jet lag caught up with us, so we fell asleep half-way through the performance. Sad thing is, it doesn't seem to have mattered much- the plot was a bit boring. The Immortals got drunk and went on a voyage- then each of them fought/played with a fish. For a long time. That's pretty much it. That being said, the... More

I read from here that it's nice show, and since it was close to hotel, decided to go see. Boy was I in for a surprise. The show was simply amazing! The pre-show stuff was nice add and then the show just blew your mind. Great acrobatics, nice story and beautiful costumes. Not to forget good music. Easily goes to... More

we booked tickets online which is really convenient with no trouble at all. the actors were amazing but we had to crane our necks (we were in the first row) to see the english subtitles. the actors performed impossible feats of gymnastics which were met by a loud round of applause every time. the costumes are beautiful and the make...

You come out of the fastest lift in the world and into the indoor observatory area. Get the free commentary device. Great views of the city. The outdoor observatory area was opened when we were there. Nice to have a look too but it was a bit awkward taking photos as there were like steel bars that obscured the view... More

Chinese opera. The evening we attended there was a musician in the lobby and we viewed several actors applying their make-up and costume. It was a nice bonus to the evening. The performance and the acrobatics were exciting.

It is a very well oiled machine. We thought there would be very busy on a weekend but it was totally fine, didnt feel claustrophobic like other observatory towers elsewhere. Suggest you go at lunchtime when most people are eating.
