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.

The Japaneses Tepanyaki restaurant, whilst expensive, is absolutely delicious. There is a good mix of high end and low end stores here, from Louis Vuitton to Zara. The food court has an absolutely fantastic selection also.

We watched the movie 3 times. Once in Taiwanese, once in English and once in another Asian language. I found it fascinating to see how it was constructed. The movie is free. I believe it was on the 89th floor and there were no crowds...More

Maybe Taipei 101 is only meant to be famous for its height. The shopping mall complex are average. Surprisingly the toilet are often smelly (especially when there are a lot of Mainland China tourists). Maybe staffs could be more active in maintaining the toilet cleanliness...More

It is a nice view, of course there is nothing fantastic about it. It is like any other high tower observatory in the world. However if you go there, don't miss eating at Din Tai Fung, the best place to eat Dim Sum and dumplings.

The Starbucks at level 35 offers a view of the city with just an order of the drink. However, the catch is that you have to reserve 1 day in advance, very strict about this. Just google for the number. There's another starbucks at basement...More

Yes, it's a very tall building. If you want the view, go up Elephant Hill (which is free and offers a good workout.) If you want the shopping, things are expensive (even with tax rebates). The place is filled with tourists. If you want the...More

Was honestly some of the best days in Taiwan this year during that period according to the locals
It mentions 'Please comply with safety inspections of your personal belongings' so can I take a backpack to the observation deck? Or are there reasonably sized/priced lockers close by?

Is there a way to book in advance, online? You mention something about Starbucks on 35F. Is that also a separate booking? Thanks!

I believe you can book tickets in advance. Sorry can't be of much help. We queued up for tickets and the movement was fast enough.
