Owner description: 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.

“posh & expensive mall”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

All seems too pretentious, but that is normal because it is shopping mall for posh and up market people. Everything are expensive here. But the observation tower is worth the visit. Just make sure you go there when it is sunny and no cloud in the sky.

“lunch on the 86th floor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Food at this restaurant was very traditional Taiwanese food, and so delicious! Views were good enough, saved us a trip to the top.

“High in The sky”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Taipei 101 is a must for whomever visits Taipei. Great restaurants await you with amazing views. If you do not decide to take the tour to the top, you can still get an amazing view from one of the restaurants located in 101. Great shops as well for everyone, and great local food as well.

“Must visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

I love is location especially the food court. If you run out of time to visit the night market this is the place to enjoy many local special food at a reasonable price.

“Worth a visit....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

....for the experience and the view!
Not impressed by the shops (not keen on stuff made from coral!) which is very expensive!
