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.

Honestly, I don't think it's a must for visit in Taipei. The place is packed of tourists and full of useless souvenirs. It is time-consuming to WAIT for the lift going up and down the tower. Yes, you may consider to play a visit if you have time and money, the entrance fee is quite expensive.

The views are of course amazing! Compare to other tall towers, it feels very stable and safe and not at all scary to look down. The elevator is very quick to the top. It's so interesting to see the stabilising damper ball - that is unique!

We came for the view and were not disappointed. It has reputably the fastest elevator in the world which whisks you to the observatory level. You can take lots of pictures or frequent the many gift and food shops. You have a 360 degree view of the city. One of the interesting things for us was the state of the... More

I went there in the evening. I found that the queue in front of the escalator to the observatory was long. The city view from the observatory was not so stunning as Tokyo Tower. On the 85th floor, you can find red coral items there.

Any visit to Taipei is incomplete without a visit to Taipei 101. It was tallest tower in the world till 2010 when it was overtaken by Burj Khalifa in Dubai. It is still considered as tallest green building in the world. Its architecture is inspired by bamboo plants. One can have a 360 degree view of the city from 89th... More

Well you see this giant from everywhere, but even on a cloudy day it is an unsurpassed high rise structure - gigantic.

Pretty view from the top! Only one side was open! But it was really nice to see! Inside you can also test a VR headset!

To be expected of the Taiwanese building: not visitor friendly, confusing, oddly layed out floor plan, strangely located restrooms and stairwells/elevators. These to apply to even the great Taipei 101. It is a great mystery to me that so many smart people reside and design things in Taiwan and yet not one building, new or old, that I have been... More

First of all, the 101 is impressive as you walk up to it and even from a distance as in my photo! But then you enter, and like most tourists, make a break for the elevators. Once aboard you are expecting the rush of acceleration... there was none and with no sense of movement the doors opened to the top!... More
