You can visit Taipei 101 Observatory from 9:00am-10:00pm daily. Last admission time: 9:15pm, please note that opening hours on national holidays may change

If you are not lazy like me who depend on taxi or grab, you may go there via MRT: Take the MRT Tamsui–Xinyi line (Red line) to Taipei 101 / World Trade Center station Exit No. 4.

The 91st floor is only open to public visits on certain days, please refer to public notices on site for information

I paid P822.00 for the ticket admission. (Price may vary)

The facilities are clean and there is quite a bit to check out besides the observatory deck. In addition to the observatory deck there is an exhibit for the wind dampening ball, an outdoor observatory deck on a higher floor, souvenir shop, ice cream shop, a couple snack shops and a bar/restaurant. They are not joking when they say the elevator goes fast.

It seemed like some of the souvenirs at the top were not available in the gift shop at the bottom. The price for most items is very reasonable and we spent a couple of hours up there checking out the views and exhibits.

There is a large jewelry store dedicated to red coral that seems out of place at the top. The wait for the ride to the top was not bad because of the anticipation, but do expect the same length of wait time at the top to go down. The staff may offer to send you down on the staff elevator if the line up is long.

When buying a ticket the seller will advise if the visibility is fair or poor at the top. We knew going in that the visibility might be low at the top because we could see fog while walking up to the tower, but we were fortunate that the weather cleared. This may not always be the case and the visibility can quickly change if it is overcast. We had an hour of clear sights before mist settled back in.

We visited this tower at night after our visit to Elephant mountain or Xiangshan. Plenty of people milling around and brightly lit and colorful. You can buy a ticket and go up to the observatory, but we didn't 'cos we have better views up on Xiangshan or elephant mountain and the views were free. You can see Taipei 101 from many areas including Dr Sun Yat Sen memorial grounds, but Xiangshan offers the best view. This used to be the tallest building in the world from 2004 to 2010 before it was dethroned by the Burj Khalifa in UAE. The Taipei 101 Metro station is right outside.

A visit to Taipei will probably feel incomplete without a visit to its tallest structure, Taipei 101. The world's tallest up to year 2010 attracts many visitors a year. In the first few floors, there are several restaurants and shops such as the popular Din Tai Fung that seems to be full of people at any given time of the day with more queueing outside waiting for their turn. There is also a shopping mall of mostly expensive brands such as Dior, Versace, Zara among others. A food court of mostly local restaurants can be found at the lower floor of the building as well as a 7-11 convenience store.

Taipei 101 is one of the tallest buildings in the world. It was known to be the world's tallest skyscraper on 2004 and lasted until 2008.

It is also known as the world's largest New Year's Eve Countdown Clock and every year, it's a tradition for people to gather here and celebrate New Year's Eve with amazing fireworks display.

The skyscraper features multilevel shopping mall, observation decks and offices.

You can book an e-ticket via Klook should you wish to experience viewing the dazzling city of Taipei.

Taiwan is an earth-quake prone area, so it is reassuring that the building has an enormous ball of metal at the top that stops the building from wobbling. Taipei 101 is built in an intricate numerical formula based on traditional Chinese beliefs. It was once the tallest building in the world, Taiwan people are proud of it. The basement has a food court, and the mid-levels have international luxury retailers like Louis Vuitton and Burberry. I've never seen anyone buy anything there but they've been in business for a long time, so they must sell something. There's also a Din Tai Fung outlet, which is very popular. They do not take reservations, be prepared to wait for an hour before you are seated. Access to Taipei 101 is easy, take the MRT Red Line. Ascent to the top of Taipei 101 is rapid, it takes less than a minute.

Lots of shops and a great food hall with lots of cuisines, dessert shops to choose from.Very close to Grand Hyatt hotel and a 15-20 minute walk from Sun Yat Sen memorial hall.

The food hall is on Level B1 and there is a Din Tai Fung as well as access to the MRT .

The upper levels have the high end stores ie Bulgari, Dior , Prada but all were empty.Hardly any people at all walking around on the upper levels.The busiest level was the food court and the 1 st floor with Zara, Adidas. Very obvious it’s due to the current Corona situation.

The building resembles a bamboo shoot and the inside is glossy and gleaming especially on the upper levels with the high end stalls.

Hand sanitisation is happening every 2 hrs at the centre and it was available at every entrance.

Access to tenTaipei observatory is via 5 F.

It’s a must visit in Taipei as it has the observatory and also no crowds at the moment.

We were dropped off at the Taipei 101 Tower. From there it was an easy ride Westwards along the main train line - getting off at various stations to look around the main tourist attractions which were always a short walk away. The Daan Forest Park (turtles and squirrels), Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial, The Taipei Confucius Temple and many more stops - it all depends on how much time you have. After seeing all the sites, retrace your steps to the Taipei 101 Tower and either or both look around at the shops or take a lift/elevator to the top for a spectacular view.

Having enjoyed a meal at one of Taipei's most famous restaurants, we found ourselves at the foot of this Taipei icon. Rising slightly over half a kilometre into the air and easily the tallest building in all of Taipei, its stylised design was inspired by a stalk of bamboo. Despite it not being a weekend, we found the ground floor packed with loads of visitors, especially young locals who had made it a place to hang out. We headed past the luxury shopping and dining areas on the first few floors for the elevators that would bring us to the observation deck. There were less visitors here, and not much of a queue to reach the top. The elevators did not have glass windows so everyone merely paid attention to the graphical display that showed us travelling at an impressive top speed of just over a thousand metres per minute and reaching top top in slightly over half a minute.

At the observation deck, we found the all-ound views of Taipei and its surrounding hills quite grand although visibility was somewhat affected by a rain squall that arrived suddenly along with some fog. One of the highlights of visiting the observation deck was seeing the incredibly heavy damper used to minimise swaying of the building in heavy winds. Made out of steel, shaped like a pendulum and weighing over six hundred tonnes, visitors can even purchase souvenir mascots that are similar in shape. We certainly enjoyed our visit, and our kids enjoyed the visit enough that they also chose to have their photos imprinted onto T-shirts designed with the building in the background.

Taipei 101 is 508 meters, and was the tallest building in the world from 2004 to 2010. The elevators to the observation deck are lightning quick, one of the fastest in the world.

On the 88th floor is the 5.5 meter diameter, 660 metric ton wind damper, which in itself is an attraction. Most supertall skyscrapers have the damper hidden, so this I found this gold coloured iron wind damper very interesting.

The food court is on the basement floor, and has some good places to eat, such as Din Tai Fung. On the 5th floor you will find the ticket sales for the Taipei 101 Observatory.
