Owner description: 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.

“cocktails and dinner to top the end if our stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

City views were excellent from the top day or night. We had dinner at Diamond Tony's which features Taiwanese / Oriental as well as western/ Italian cuisine. Unfortunately we chose the Eastern cuisine. I found that most of it requires an acquired taste and I was very upset with myself for trying the shark's fin soup. Nonetheless the typical eastern dinner came with many courses and one is likely to find a favorite among the many. If you can splurge, this is a good place to end your visit in this beautiful city.

Visitors can visit 2 floors. 89 floor for Taipei city view, 88 floor for shopping. We found it too commercial.

“Food Courts at Taipei 101”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

I did not go anywhere near the upper level designer stores which I avoid like the plague! Prices are very high for all imported goods in Taiwan. However, being a foodie I always venture into the food courts to ogle and sample the mind-boggling variety of food everywhere. There was a wide variety of food at Taipei 101, from Taiwan, Chinese, Korean and Indian food. I tasted two dishes and they were excellent from two different local styles. A bakery called 'Lalo' was superb and we bought many kinds of bread here, every piece was delicious!
