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.

Great view

A great tourist thing to do. Best to go a clear day if possible. There is a nominal charge but not too expensive. Can be very busy sometimes with mainland Chinese tourists.

We went up with 4 adults and 6 kids. We had so much fun. While looking at the view we had haagen daaz ice cream for all the kids and beer for adults, lots of things like jewelry is on display and on sale. Very entertaining, highly recommended for families with kids.

Well, I'm not a fan of skyscrapers and I am from Kuala Lumpur, watching a slightly shorter Petronus Twin Tower since young. It fails to amaze me much other than it is thinner than it was on televisions.

Major brands can be found here, the more accessible brands are found on the first level and basement. Food at the basement is affordable and decent and the souvenir section is wonderful.

I had a good experience. Try to avoid getting caught in the Chinese tour group. For individuals, take the lift up to Level 4 (if not mistaken) to purchase ticket to Taipei 101. I got a free gift for liking Taipei Facebook page.

I am normally afraid of heights however, this building was one of my most favored activities! The elevator to the top can be crowded, the ride is quick and easy. The elevator operator has everyone look up at the top of ceiling as the elevator rises and view lights similar to the sky at night. Once arrived, views are specular,... More
