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.

We almost didn't go here, as we thought it was just another typical tourist attraction. It's fairly pricy and you should be prepared to wait quite a while, first to buy tickets, then to go up, and again to come down! However, they do have an organized system so that you know when you'll be going up, and can explore... More

Because DinTaiFung was crowded around 7pm, I went to the top of Taipei101. It was on Sunday, but not too many people waiting than I had imagined. But Taipei, in April, had some rain and fog, so I couldn't see the night view clearly. You can buy the ticket first, then take a look around 101 shopping mall while waiting.... More

This shpping and food area is amazing. You can find every high end product in the world, or better in the 101. In all of my 23 years of International travel, including Dubai, I have never obsereved this many top level shops in one beautiful location. Don't tell my wife.

This is a well organised tourist attraction. We were gently moved on but did get to see the weight ball that gives the building stability and the views over the city.

The view from the top is amazing, whereby one can see the entire city. The best time to go is just before sundown when you first see what's like during the day without all the lights and afterwards Taipei at night with all the lights. Choose a clear sky and preferably non windy day so one can go outside to... More

The good: * Amazing views to be had on a clear day. 360 view of Taipei and surrounds is really a must see - best idea is to go around dusk just before it gets dark, and to wait for the lights. * No hassles getting a ticket and the queue up is quite speedy. The gotcha: * Tour groups... More

the view from Taipei 101 was amazing from its 35th storey starbucks (requires reservation at least a day in advance by calling them). Do plan for a day with good forecasted weather and you would not be disappointed. Unfortunately we had to give the 101 observatory deck a miss when we saw the crowd of mainland tourists massing at the... More

The bottom few flies of the Taipei 101 are a designer mall. On the lower level is a huge food court and my favorite store to visit, which is Jason's market. The also have an observation deck, I'm to scared to try it though. The mall inside the Taipei 101 is circular. There's a fee for the observation deck. They... More

A must visit in Taipei. Tripadvisor want me to pad this out to 100 characters. Why? They really need to get used to the idea that some reviews don't need to be padded .
