This is my 2nd time in 2 years but thwarted again by poor visibility. They do warn you at ticket counter though of chances of poor visibility at the top, so unless you are on a tight /inflexible schedule, do check for visibility before paying...More

Not the tallest building now, but it still boasts the fastest elevator in the world at 1010 m / min, which converts to about 61km, which is really fast and the elevator is as still as it can be. Wonderful view of Taipei from the...More

This is about as touristy as I get on trips but you can’t pass up the chance to see an amazing view of Taiwan from up here. If it’s a nice day you go outside on the observation deck and experience the wind whistling through...More

Amazing view of Taipei from here. Better to check the weather before visiting. If it is cloudy and rainy day, you may miss the nice view from observatory. You can reach the observatory in 89th floor via fast elevator. Taipei 101 tower has served as...More

Wow, that's my first word when I saw the view at the top of 101, even I knew it's not the highest floor where I was. If you come to Taipei, you cannot miss this hot spot for seeing city view here. You better come...More

It was worth spending 600 NTDs going up to floor 89 of Taipei 101, the tallest building till 2010. The elevators lifted us up in just under 50 seconds. Pay attention to the coupons provided with the tickets. They carry some good deals.

The title says it all. I suggest that you book this activity online to skip the payment process. Wear your flats, the queue to the top is no joke. We were booked for 6:30PM but were able to reach 89th floor around 7 because of...More

You will just see the city from the 89th floor. It's really not that special considering you have to wait for both going up and going down. But the pineapple cakes being sold there the best ones.

We decided to visit the most important building in Taipei, the 101 tower. The view was excellent but the queues up and down were too long. Waiting time approximately 1 hour for each way. Please bear this in mind.

I was really lucky ‘cause I arrived at a time where no one was standing there to go up, which then took me only 10 minutes after buying the ticket to being up on the observatory. Up there it’s really nice. On every window are...More

depends on what you would like to see. If you see taipei by night, then 5 to 6 PM is ok. if you want to see taipei by morning, around lunch time is ok. just make sure there are less fogs so that you may see the view clearly

Based on the timing of your layover in Taiwan, there is definitely sufficient time for you to travel to Taipei 101. From the Taoyuan International Airport, catch a 5-minute shuttle (green Ubus) to the High Speed Rail (HSR... More
