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

We visited 101 as a "must do" and it really is! The building itself is wonderful to see, especially first off from the exit of the MRT station. The mall beneath the tower block is full of designer shops and is pretty upmarket. Access to the Observatory is via the 5th floor entrance. We visited on a Saturday at around... More

The first time I visited the observatory, back in 2005, I was very impressed. The experience was classy and informative. This time round the experience has been diluted by the business imperative: to try and make as much money as possible from the swarms of mainland tourists. The focus if the experience was... Coral. A whole floor is dedicated to... More

The tallest building in Taipei. Can't miss Taipei 101! Expensive shops all around so not for everyone. The food court was pretty good. Wide selection of local delights and fast food. Din Tai Fung is there too, i.e., perpetually crowded. Worth heading up if it was a clear day. Bird's eye view of Taipei and get to understand why Taipei... More

The Taipei 101 is a great building if it is a clear day; mostly on a day when the sun comes out after a big rainstorm or Typhoon. The balancing ball is very interesting and worth the extra money to hear the history and how the damper works in stabilizing the building.

Taipei 101 is definitely one of the most amazing, well-designed buildings in the world. I would recommend for anyone visiting Taipei. If you have sometime getting into the building, please don't miss the observary which is on top of the building and can give you a very good view of Taipei.

The building itself is amazing and beautiful, but the shops inhere are only for the in-crowd (I will never be able to afford shopping in Taipei 101) - for this reason the high price label-shops are empty as a desert! The view is breathtaking but you have to be very lucky to join the outside area. The food hall at... More

Just take pictures from some good angles. There're many department stores around this area, restaurants are generally good but cost more for sure. You can take the elevator to the top but crowded tourists may take you some time to get there. The view from top definitely allows you to see a whole picture of Taipei. If you like to... More

Good for the family and shopping if that's your thing. Viewing deck is well worth a visit though, and interesting from an engineering perspective. They have a huge damper that you can view to keep the building stable in earthquakes and typhoons. Views of the Taipei basin can be hit and miss, depending on the weather.

Go once on a clear day after a typhoon for the most amazing photos of greater Taipei and once on a clear evening after a good rain for spectacular night scene shots. Enjoy taking visitors there and showing them Taipei and surrounds from on high :)

Just the most famous landmark in the city, you can see the whole city from the top, and also you can see it from any corner of city. But the observatory is small and crowded all the time. For a first time visitor will be good, daytime and nigh time has different attractions.
