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.

If your in Taipei it's worth a look.

Some spectacular views from the top floor bit unnerving at first but definitely worth a look, even if it's just for the super speedy elevator to the top.

Taipei is a fabulous city surrounded by greenery, mountains, waterfalls and hot springs. There is so much to do. I love the Japanese influence combined with the Chinese. The people are so incredibly friendly and polite. There are the local quarters coupled with the modern designer shopping areas. Taiwan is an impressive island!

Too bad the 91st floor was closed due to bad weather conditions. But 89th floor was made accessible to us. Awesome to see Taipei centre from the observatory tower. Got some pineapple cakes, but i think it would be cheaper if you buy them from stores outside of taipei 101.

If you like shopping, this is the place that you cannot miss. There are a few malls nearby and you can easily spend a day here. You can also find most of the popular souvenirs here. That being said, if shopping is not what you want, you better save your time for other places.

Its landmark of Taipei, a must-go hot spot. However, maybe it's because the high speed elevator or the crowded lines, my boyfriend and I weren't feeling well on the top floor. We felt the building was slightly moving, like you're walking on a boat. But overall it's still a place worth to pay a visit.

As one of the tallest buildings it has spectacular views from the top. Unfortunately weather might not help all the time :P The building is also full of HighEnd shops for the shoppers, and a great foodcourt of the most amazing diversity in cuisines. Best: variety of highend things, and events being held at the location Not so cool: pricey.

The building is a must visit. The view is awesome. The lift is awesome. Seeing the giant damper and reading how it works is very interesting. Have done this trip 2 times. June 2013 with family and August 2015 with my 6 month old for some selfies. Love it. The lines are long so I suggest avoiding the weekend days... More

Despite the long queues I would still recommend going up to the top of this iconic building. In particular the view of Taipei is different to many world cities as it is a remarkably low-rise city without the endless skyscrapers of many in East Asia. This means the view from 101 is really great.

The second best thing about my visit was the quick elevator ride. It was very very quick buy we had to queue quite a bit before we could go up. The best thing was the wind. The strong cold breeze cooled me down so much and I just loved standing there hearing the howl of the wind. The view was... More
