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.

“Worthy of a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013

What a cool building!!! Visually unique. The place is more than just an observation tower. It's also a high end mall. We did not really do any shopping as the mall aspect felt like Orchard Rd, Singapore.

During our visit, it was always misty and cloudy and waited to see when the sky would clear up. Never happened, so on our last day we went up during lunch time. Which is the best when the huge tour bus crowd are not there. The line to get the tickets was short and the deck was crowd but not unbearable. The elevator ride was a unique very short experience; I wanted to go up and down a couple times just for the sake. Given the day we went was cloudy, we did not get to see very far, felt like we were in a cloud-- neat also. So when we were heading out, the huge tour crowd was just coming in.

“Go on a good day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013

For NT$500, it was a steep admission price compared to everything else. If you take your time, you can use 101 as a good starting point for your taipei adventures. The audioguide provided heaps of information about the city.
The outside observation deck was open, but there was nothing to see. They also make you walk through a coral museum- to buy stuff before you leave.
Don't forget to bring your notebook to get some stamps from the top. And remember to use your Youth Travel Pass to get NT$50 off entry.

“Worth the cost”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 15, 2013 via mobile

This is the nest view and ride up the elevator was very cool. It is a little pricey compared to other TW attractions but not to western standards. Techy geeks will like seeing the 660 ton counter balance.

“Hustle and Bustle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2013

its a very lively place ! lots of people which lends to the great shopping atmosphere. 101 is not a place by itself . it leads to most of taipei's best shopping and if one is conscientious, it will take hours if not a couple of days to completely cover 101 and its surrounding experience.
101 itself of course is an archetecture marvel and is amazing in what it is but it offrs more and leads one to wonder in a quake centric area, a building so massively tall is supposed to withstand natural interventions that topples lesser bricks and mortars.
will be a place to recommend anytime when one is in Taiwan !
