Observation Deck Architectural Building
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.

  • If you can only visit one museum in Taipei, visit this one! Good for a few hours to soak in the country's history and treasures. Would recommend getting the audio guide if you can't get the free tour.  more »

  • When we purchased the tickets, the ticket counter said the view was "good". But when we got up, it was so hazy that we could hardly see anything. And obviously the management of the observatory knew this as they had closed off one side of the top floor "due to bad weather conditions". We felt so cheated, especially since the tickets were so pricey. I understand the pressure to drive sales, but honesty is really the best policy, and you need consumer trust to develop a successful business. If the observatory had been upfront in saying the view was hazy, we could have decided to come back another day, or take our chances that day. We would have felt less angry in the latter case, as we were the ones who ultimately decided after being well informed.
  • What an amazing view! Unfortunately for me it was a bit rainy and foggy all day but I still was able to get a great view of the city. The elevator is unbelievably fast, ground to 89th floor in 36 seconds!?! My ears popped! The cost is 600 Taiwan dollars but it's a once in a lifetime chance for me, but if I ever get back I hope it's sunny!! Highly recommend this! They need to put in a glass floor (and sell diapers!) like at the CN Tower in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
  • This is an amazing establishment with outstanding architectural design. I visited the place in 2010 during Computex. Unfortunately I couldn't go to the top of the building & had to be satisfied with the outer beauty of the building.
  • OK, nothing special. If you want to appreciate the architecture of tall buildings then you would love it. Otherwise just another high building that they charge you to go up for. Make sure it is a sunny day when you go up, otherwise you waste money seeing clouds.
  • This place is still a happening place Lions of people wanting to get up to the 89th floor through the fastest elevator around nice views from the city below and actually walk on see through glass and see the ground below great place to bring the kids have snacks and foods and gift shops Galore but it can be on the pricey side for a family of four remember that when you go there they generally don't take discounts so you're more than likely going to pay whatever the fare is.
