All reviews wind damper nice view observation deck strong winds degree view fastest elevator city lights souvenir shops elevator ride night view sunny day din tai fung long queue high speed elevator entire city top floor tallest building in the world
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
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) station. Buses run every 10-15 minutes from 7:00 am. Take the High Speed Rail to Taipei. Travel time is between 20 to 25 minutes at TWD350 per adult on the standard return ticket. There is the earliest arriving train at Taipei Station at 7.30 am. From Taipei Station, change train on the red line toward Taipei 101 Station. The Taipei 101 is open between 9.00 am to 10,00 pm daily. Ticket is priced at TWD500 per adult and this can be purchased on level 5. While at the observatory between 9.00 am to 10.00 am, you will be able to witness the shadow of Taipei 101 cast against Elephant Mountain (象山, Xiangshan). If you intend to have breakfast up at the observatory, you will be disappointed. Unfortunately shops do not open as early as you will arrive at Taipei 101. Shops open at 11.00 am. You may have to look for simple breakfast at either the closest 7-Eleven or McDonalds. And because you have to be back at the Taoyuan International Airport by 12 noon, you wouldn't have time to experience the local fare. If only you had more time, I would have recommended for you to have a good brunch/lunch at Din Tai Fung located in the basement of Taipei 101. In fact, I would recommend an overnight layover in Taipei before you head to Bangkok. There is a lot to see and local food to savor.
P.S.: Just so that you know, there are food choices available at the Taoyuan International Airport. These can be found in the transit areas. Value for money. Have a good time in Taipei and safe travels.
