Taipei 101, Taipei
(4/5 based on 7,500+ reviews on the web)
An engineering wander constructed to defy cyclones and earthquakes, Taipei 101 held the honor as the tallest building in the world for six years until 2009. The architectural features and elements of the 509 m (1,700 ft) tall tower are fueled with symbolism. Notice how its design resembles an elongated pagoda or a bamboo stick--recalling growth. The number of levels (101) indicates striving for more than perfection, and the number of segments consisting of the same number of floors (eight) stands for good fortune and prosperity. However, its most popular element is the damper that defied the strongest typhoon in history (2015). The skyscraper houses a huge shopping mall on its first five floors, along with restaurants, clubs, and two observation decks on 89th and 91st floors.

  • Our tour guide and others in Taipei are proud of this dominating feature. It is one big building. Seen it close or far is good enough. Need 10 minutes here to take photo and leave. 
  • Whilst visiting Taipei, 101 was top of our 'must see' buildings. The ground floor is a food hall with cafes and restaurants. Take the lift to the 3rd floor and get your ticket to ride the amazing elev...  more »
  • Still the 5th tallest building in the world is the Taipei 1001 yet very unique due to the symbolic architecture. From the top you have stunning views of Taipei and its surroundings.

  • The experience is simply astounding! First, you ride on a very fast elevator to the observatory. My body got confused as I can feel myself moving very fast yet I know I am just standing stationary in a metal box. On the observatory, you can see a 360 degree view of the city from its highest building. It's just magnificent! So worth it!
  • Great view on a sunny day. The lift is very fast but does not really give too much of ear pressure. The view is good and crowd is being controlled so it was not crowded. It's a little pricey if you buy the tickets on the spot. Do a search on Internet to get a 15% discount and get an on the spot email or voucher where you can exchange for the entrance tickets.
  • Use to be cheaper entrance. Pretty commercial with tourist shops at the top. The outside area is to recommend when here but honestly Taipei is best viewed when taipei 101 is a part of the skyline... floor 35 has a starbucks and there are other resturants on 80+ floors, that dont require entrance fee.
  • Worth the visit and the entrance fee. Great view of the city from above. You also can see the wind stabilizer weight and a video about the construction. There was quite some waiting Tim to get down again.
  • A must-go for any new visitors to Taipei. You can see a great view of the city from the observatory deck (located at Level 88 and 89. Over at the ticketing counter, it will tell you which floors are open to the public for the day. The outdoor observatory at Level 91 is only open to public on days with good weather conditions.
