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.

This was my 3rd time up to the observation deck and it's still really cool every time. I'm an engineer so the wind damper is always a marvel. They do a good job balancing the science with the general understanding of how it works. The views are always cool to see Taipei and the elevators are just ridiculously fast.

The design (archeticture) of this building, inspired by the bamboo cane, is a highlight in the skyline of Taipei. The lookout offers awe inspiring views of the city. Inside is a bit of a disappointment, resembling a typical western style shopping mall even if a bit more upclass shoppingwise.

The 101 Building is definitely the trademark of Taipei Taiwan and if you are in this town you should definitely visit the 101 Building and go all the way up to the observatory and check out the views of the city you will not be disappointed.

It is a great place to view the city in 360 degrees. Take the MRT and the building is right in front of one of its exits. I went early to avoid the crowd. There were many grouped visitors. Still there was few minutes of wait to get to the elevator. The outdoor observation deck one floor above the indoor... More

Taipei 101 is probably THE attraction in Taipei and therefore a must-see. However, the admission fee seems a bit overpriced compared to the price standard in Taiwan. Once on the observatory deck, you will have a nice view over Taipei. Unfortunately, when we were there, the top deck was only opened partially due to some heavy winds. From the lower... More

This is definitely a must visit place if you are here in Taipei for the 1st time. It is my second visit to Taipei viewing gallery. My last visit was 10 years ago and still I find it really worth my visit again. The view is really breathtaking and it is really a great architecture considered Taiwan experiences strong winds...

We did not take the lift to the observatory (rainy season with low cloud and poor visibility) so these comments are limited to the other public spaces in 101. There is nothing special about the shopping. The same shops you see in all major world cities are housed here. The is a food court which was over-crowded (rainy season) and... More

You'll have the best view of the city that the smog will allow. Lines are long both to enter and to exit so leave plenty of time.
