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.

On the bottom floor you can find lots of places to eat, and on the rest of levels you can find high end shopping. Other than the food court and 101 Observatory there is nothing much else to do here. There is an additional cost of 600TWD to take the elevator up to the observatory, main entrance is on 5F... More

The views from the 89th floor are amazing - especially if the weather cooperates. Getting a ticket and getting to the top is easy - but, exiting is a challenge - so allow enough time for the visit (esp. the exit...as the que for the down elevator are longggg).

Go at night, worth the ticket price (~18 USD) for a view of the city. Good to combine with a visit to the Din Tai Fung 101 branch downstairs and check a few things off your Taipei list. I try to do this in each new city I visit that has a skyscraper of this caliber, but the nice thing... More

Skip if you are on a budget. Price was NTD600 per head. We just went here for the experience. This is a tourist area so expect higher prices in this area.

What a collection experience to travel so high in the sky and see Taipei from this Bird's-eye view. There are lots of informative videos to see and and artwork on display as well that will delight you.

Take note that Taipei does not have really have a nice skyline. Especially if youve been to Hong Kong's Victoria Peak. I even think Kuala Lumpur tower has a better skyline. On a windy day, huge sections of the open-air observation deck was closed, but honestly you have a better view of the city indoors.

A nice trip. Tried to access the Starbucks on 33, ended up doing the full tour. We went on a really clear day, and the views from outside on the platform were great. Interesting reading about the damper too! It was a nice afternoon activity, maybe try to head there for afternoon/sunset overlap.

101 Tower is the most highest tower in Taipei. You can go to see the view at 35 floor for free by appoint Starbuck Staff in advance for 1 day. (you have to spend 200 NTD to buy coffee and bakery).

You get a view of the city but it depends on the days visability what you see. Many kitch things to buy up there. Shopping Mall at ground level. The actual entrance to go up the tower needs to have better signage. To leave they walk you through a large jewelry store. Annoying. Then you queue to get lift down..could... More

What a well organised day tour we took to the highest building in Taipei. Tour guide was on time, spoke perfect English. Was over caring and his explanations of everything showed a real passion for his job. It was delightful and the rest of the tri also but that building and the views were amazing. The guide actually took us... More
