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.

Views are great, Taipei is so beautiful and the surrounding misty hills frame it perfectly. It is reasonably expensive and can get busy but needs to done for first time visitors. Plenty of shopping and restaurants too.

Extraordinary ride of my life. The view of Taipei on the 89th floor is incredible . Add six more floors to that is breathtaking. Going to the indoor observation deck with such speed is an unforgettable experience.

I was excited to go to the 91 floor of Taipei 101. However, due to the weather, the level was closed. So we had to make do with the 89 Floor. The view were alright, and we get to walk around the building for the 360 degrees view of the city. There are plenty of souvenir shops at the top,... More

Great views over Taipei. A little expensive for a 35 second ride but if you're only in Taiwan once you may as well do it. Great range of cafes and food below. Waiting time to get back down from the tower was about 45minutes in a queue and not the greatest end to the day.

Like the wide range of boutiques and restaurants. From high end to mid range. You can even buy all the famous Taiwanese snacks like nougat and pineapple pastries from stalls in the basement level.

I liked this mall a lot. It is a must-see for anyone who visits Taipei. There is a big supermart Jason's at the ground floor where you can buy food, drinks and snacks.

this is a good place to start before exploring Taipei city. you can see a great deal of the city from the observation deck on the 89th floor. weekdays before lunch time would be the best to visit as it is very crowded during the evening and weekends. ask the ticket counter on the visibility from the top and they...

This is definitely a beautiful and impressive building, and an engineering feat. I’m giving it three stars because I think these areas need attention: -The damper, while very interesting, has extremely limited information about how and why it works. The info presented is really just too basic. If you’re going to suspend this amount of weight this high up and... More

Easy to get to either by MRT where there is a stop right there or by taxi which is cheap in Taiwan. Food hall offers great variety of cuisines. Din Tai Foong is there also which has the most exquisite dumplings ever. What a great experience though you will most likely need to wait for a table. Lots of brands... More

A must see while in Taipei. It's incredible how such a building could be built and the view from the 87th floor is wonderful. Its worth paying the 15 USD it cost and go to the observatory. The wind dumper is also impressive and everything is very user friendly and well displayed.
