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.

I enjoyed people watching in this giant building. I also visited the observatory which I thought was great, and I wrote about it in a separate post. There are some great stores (expensive) and restaurants in Taipei 101 worth checking out.

IT was relatively easy to get up to 101. The top took us a good hour to walk around if you are going to listen to that audio guide. The inside portion is good enough, outside - too windy and it was a cloudy day I couldn't see anything really. The Damper Baby was good. Fast elevator was "awwww"... A... More

An amazing feat of engineering. The views can be fantastic but it can be quite hazy. Go in the late afternoon as you see it in daylight and then the lights coming on. There is a cool corner where they have put in mirrors - good fun taking photos here. This building was the tallest in the world but is... More

Very interesting visit, fantastic architecture, and even if you more or less skip the international upscale mall at the bottom of the tower take advantage of a lunch at STAY , a table by Yannick Alleno with good food and service...surprisingly affordable !

I was super excited to visit this attraction but be warned you will need patience and open to being subjected to lots of walking through shop after shop. You cannot enter on the basement only groups can so individual visitors must go up the five floors to a separate entrance. Then you get tickets and wait in another queue. The... More

This was our first stop in Taipei, the view from the top is just amazing. We could see the entire city and surrounding areas. The lines were a bit long since there's only two elevators, but it wasn't too bad. I would avoid peak tourist times of the day or year since it would probably take hours to get up... More

Although it has been around for a few years and is no longer the tallest, Taipei 101 mosdef has a presence. A green building, literally and in its architecture. The architect was inspired by bamboo! The view from inside was fantastic, but we were not able to go to the outside observation deck due to high winds. There is quite... More

I watched the Taipei 101 being built and wondered what the result would be. Let's face it, New York doesn't have to build the world's tallest building, as Taipei 101 was for a while, because it's New York. Taipei 101 was intended to be a drawcard for Taipei,and it was for a while. Fears that it would topple in an... More

A must. If you like skyscrapers you will agree that they are nicer to be seen from far away. In this case a nice surrounding environment, the basement shopping mall, and of course the spectacular views are expected. but the building is quite nice resembling a pagoda. Restaurant on the top was a nice place to have lunch
