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.

The MRT goes right there, and the ticket was 500NTD. It was busy, so I queued for entry, whilst a friend went and queued for the tickets (a shorter wait). The views are pretty spectacular, the sunset was beautiful, and they had rum and raisin ice cream!!! you can stay as long as you like, though there's not much food... More

The building right from the bottom is a whole experience - full of fancy stores and restaurants. Going up, you have a nice view of Taipei. Make sure you go on a clear day.

My husband is a huge fan of skyscraper architecture, so it was no question we would visit Taipei 101 on his first trip to Taiwan. We stopped here for lunch on Day 1 with a tour. The building is grandiose and elegant, with beautiful architectural details both inside and out. There was an abundance of tasty meal options in the... More

I went there since I had a day to do some sight seeing in Taipei before my flight back and this is considered one of the must-do. Well.. It's a high building and a fast elevator, if you like this kind of stuff then go for it. The shopping center below its a good place for addicted shoppers.

For five years this was the tallest building in the world. Now it's at #9 and dropping each year it seems. Still, this is a cool area and popular in Taiwan. You can see it from afar but you need to actually go there and see what is inside to appreciate it. If you go to the top you get... More

A great shopping area, a lot of decently priced stores. The view from the top at night is amazing, and the elevator makes your ears pop...perfect.
