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

Going to Taipei without seeing 101 would be a shame. The elevator ride to the 89th floor only takes 30 secs which is amazing. The view is spectacular and the audio guide provided ensures you get the maximum out of this tour. Make sure you go to the observatory as well.

Seriously i don't think it's worth going there at all, it cost us NT550 to just get a view of the city . If you want to get a good view try going to XiangShan its even better up there, even thought you need to do all the climbing.

Like all touristy places, be prepared to expect the crowds and the waiting. there are certain sections under an upgrading project during my visit. if you are not into such... More

A nice tower to have a breathtaking view on the city! The Taipei 101 is one of the most famous attractions in Taipei. Don't miss the club underneath the Tower!

this building pretty much towers over most of taipei - there are really good views although, quite one of the wings was under construction when i was there. the elevator up is really awesome - it's fast and smooth and you really don't feel yourself go up that many floors in such short a time. however, lots of queuing up...

Taipei, A City of low rise buildings built by the retreating Kuamintung Forces from Chairman Mao's PLA maybe because of earthquakes. Chinese likes to eat so there are many restaurants to choose from. Taipei 101 was one of the tallest building in the world until another taller building came along. Taibei 101 is unique in its oriental design, not spectacular... More

Building is a unique design - modeled after bamboo on the exterior. My family found it very interesting to learn about the unique engineering required for such a tall building - and we are from NYC where we have plenty of skyscrapers! It's a neat place to visit - be sure to go out out to the staircase and look... More

Went to the 88th floor and looked out, could have done that anywhere. Fast elevator - so that was good. Overpriced and had to wait to go up and go down - even though they made a really big deal about how fast the elevator was?
