At 509 meters high, this was the world's tallest building from 2004 to 2010, when the Burj Khalifa in Dubai surpassed it. The tower is reminiscent of a pagoda or a stalk of bamboo and designed to withstand typhoons and earthquakes common in Taiwan. Floors one through five are a shopping center and both the indoor (89th floor) and outdoor (91st floor) observation decks offer a 360-degree panoramic view.

Great view

Great view even if it was raining and there's a thunderstorm..after the rain the scenery was clear. Great food in the food court.

I went at lunchtime which I recommend as it wasn't as busy. On my way down loads of tourist groups were going up. The day was slightly raining so it wasn't too clear but a good way to see the city as I like to do in new places I visit to see the surroundings.

We have found that the best way to view is from the restaurant at the top. You will need a reservation, and the Chinese one is fabulous, and the view is amazing! Enjoy, ExploreTraveler

This I believe is the tallest building in Taipei if not Taiwan. Great views of the city around the 90th floor. It boasts the fastest elevator in the world, according to the Guinness World record plaque in the elevator. Goes to about the 90th floor in a little over 30 seconds. Has a huge dampener in the center shaft of... More

We were fortunate to have a clear day and got to see beautiful views of the city! Amazing technology on that building. If you are interested in engineering you will be amazed.

Sporting one of the best views of the Taipei area, the 89th floor observation deck requires a ticket (500 Renmibi), but it's worth it for the view and to ride the fastest elevator in the world. Zooming to the observation deck, you get a chance to learn about the elevator and the Taipei 101 history (as it was once the... More

We were visiting Taipei for only 6 days and this was one of the attractions we were able to see. Amazing views. The upper deck was open when we were there so it was great to be outside.
