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

This was my second visit to Taipei 101 but the weather was not good at the first trip a few years back and the view was at best hazy and unclear. I went up again a few days ago because the sky was bright and clear and atlas the view was fantastic. One could see clearly the city of Taipei... More

IT was so high and such an amazing experience. at the foot of the building are all the high-end, classy brands. Such positioning and its a nice experience to go up to the top. However, i have no strong preference for it. Have been to taiwan a couple of times but went to Taipei 101 once only for the experience.

The observation deck provides a 360 degree view of Taipei and surrounding areas and complementary audio tour in multiple languages. Just as interesting is the structural design with the tuned mass dampers to allow the building to withstand typhoon winds and seismic events. There can be a long wait for the elevator to the observation deck, if you are pressed... More

The queuing up was fast and the lift travelling up and down was so fast. The scenery was really fantastic. However they had increased the entrance fee although we have Youth Travel Card. The price of the food court is not expensive and have many variety. Highly recommend to visit at night.

Taipei 101 is great experience for entire family, but the entrance fee was bit expensive and it was so crowed with Chinese tour groups we had to stand in long liner for elevator get up to the high floor, we could not enjoy the tour and made it very unpleasant experience.

Taipei 101 is located in the Shinyi business district Tickets are to be taken at a level which is above the luxury shopping area - the weather was not good throughout our visit and they were considerate enough to inform us about the same. The outer observation platform was closed due to bad weather and that was an experince we... More

Great views of Taipei and accessible by metro. About 500 NTD to go up in it. Well worth it. Don't miss the movie they show. Gifts are a bit expensive.

Fortunately is was in town on business and had dinner at the restaurant in a private room, so I did not get to experience the joy of the tourist trap aspect of this, so I can only comment that the view from that high up is pretty amazing.

As one would expect when visiting Taiwan, Taipei 101 is a must to visit; whether it is to simply shop and walk around the grand shopping complex down below, or to ride the fastest lift in the world to view the city from the sky. For anyone below 30 years of age, remember to get a student travellers pass (it's... More
