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'm not particularly impressed with this tower. I think it looks nicer from afar. About $50 US to go to the top. Basically, it has offices upstairs and restaurants and shops at the bottom. Nothing really special.

I just walked pass didn't get inside, but taking a picture from outside in a raining day like this is already good enough.

Yes, it IS a must do if you're a tourist here... but that's about it. Have a look in the mall, wait in line for the very fast elevator to the top, walk around a bit viewing Taipei from above, stop in the gift shop for a fridge magnet.

A must-see in Taipei for the tour which was the tallest in the world for quite a few years! Lot of shops, restaurants and things to do.

We didn't want to spend the outrageous fee to go up to the top of Taipei 101, especially since it was a slightly murky day. We just wandered through the majestic shopping mall on the first few floors, taking in the spectacular window displays in the scores of high-end boutiques that occupy the building.

If you're looking to have a great meal and shop to your heart's content, this is the place to be. There are a variety of places restaurants (food court and sit down restaurants) in the basement and 5th floor. All of the top designers have stores at the 101. There is a tax refund counter right in the shopping centre... More

I've read many reviews saying this was not worth the amount of money (ie. it is very expensive, but only in comparison to other things in Taiwan) but I for sure felt it was worthwhile. Visited on a Sunday lunchtime hoping to buy a ticket in advance for the following day, but arrived to find it almost empty and with... More

Interesting from the standpoint of the view that was available, but also from the standpoint of the architecture used to create this building.

You wouldn't visit Paris and miss the Eiffel Tower or Beijing and skip the Forbidden City! Taipei 101 is the signature landmark of Taipei and provides excellent views of the entire city. The observation deck is on the 89th floor and is surrounded by large windows that let you peer down on what would be the tallest of buildings in... More
