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.

This used to be the tallest building in the world, but it is still impressive. Make sure that you chose a nice, clear day because otherwise the view is limited. I would suggest coming up here shortly before nightfall in order to watch the lights come on and see the view at dusk and night.

Great view from the observatory of the city. NTD$500 pp but worth it. They take your picture before you board the elevator and you can pick your pix at the observatory (89th floor) When heading back down remember to take a flight of stairs one floor down and join the queue.

Great view of the entire city from on high. A fun experience that gives a good sense of Taipei and the layout. Educational as well as the placards explain some of the science behind the building.

We took our two young kids and a visiting friend from Tokyo to Taipei 101 today. Ticket prices were $500NT which is reasonable. The elevator going up to the observation deck is the fastest in the world! I think it was a 37 second ride up to the 89th floor. Weather was great today and we were able to see... More

This place is awesome. Firstly, they have discount for Visa card, and international student card. Staff was really friendly with me. Highlight for their English skill. Then, you start going up and when you arrive on the highest floor, you wont believe on the view. If you have some time, my advice it is for you to keep staring the... More

Most famous building in Taipei. Very crowded with tourist. Shopping is not recommended because the goods sold here a bit pricey. But you can try the food court. A lots of food available here and delicious too.

I suppose it's just one of those things you would think of doing if you're in Taipei - to be brought up in one of the highest buildings in the world. What was astonishing was the speed at which the elevators travelled almost 90 floors against gravity in what felt like under a minute. However, there wasn't the expected rush... More

To all travelers out there, this tower is highly recommended to visit. A visit to Taipei is not complete without visiting Taipei 101.

There is no time limit... More
