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. « less

Wow, what great views and certainly worth the trip to the top - I had a great meal with my business colleagues which finished off a long day having travelled in from Shanghai.

We were fortunate to get out on the observation deck since the weather was pleasant. There you can see almost a 360 of Taipei and the surrounding mountains. It is worth the wait to get to the deck if you have time. We also visited a second time with family to have lunch in a private dining room! That was... More

This is worth a visit and the view is amazing on a clear day. Two things to watch out for: They are renovating at the moment, so only one side of the viewing platforms are available which was disappointing. The queues are huge - we waited around 40 min to get up to the top and then there as also... More

Amazing panoramic view! The building is unique and involved a lot of high tech stuff to keep him standing and survive earthquakes.

went there at night (for the night view). Bad time. Waited almost 2 hrs. tons of tons tourist groups. Over crowed, couldn't enjoy much views. But did get impressed by the Super Big Wind Damper. Recommend it only when you have nothing to do.

The most Wonderful view of Taipei! Recommended at night especially. There are a lot of shops in this building, but it's very expensive!

The views at sunset were awesome. It is worthwhile to hire the headsets and take your time to listen to the excellent narrations pillar by pillars , as it gives you "a birds eye view" of Taipei and it's surrounds. Worth a visit, truly an architectural marvel.

Great late afternoon/early evening view from the top. Now, Taipei 101 is now directly access via MRT train as the station was recently completed. The only drawback is 1/2 of the observatory on 88th floor is closed for renovation till Sep 2014. Otherwise worth every dollar well spent! Highly recommended. NT500 (adult) entry fee, but 30-60 mins queue time. NT1,000... More

Obviously this is a must see in Taiwan - only heads up - the express elevator pass is worth it. It is about double the price of regular tickets to the top - but definitely worth it to bypass the 30-45 minute queue to get into the elevator. Recommend.
