Taipei 101, Taipei

#1 of 283 in Shopping in Taiwan
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.

  • 101 Big Floor Adventure There are many well-known specialized container, but in addition to shopping, there are a lot of delicious restaurants, such as the Ding Tai, or the Italian bird restaurant, in the basement also has a well-known new supermarket, but also boarded the 101 viewing platform. One of the attractions of Taipei.

  • 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.
  • The view here is spectacular!!! You can have a look at the whole Taipei city and take time lapse video of the main roads! The ticket is quite expensive compared to my other expenses in Taipei(TWD600), but in my opinion it is definitely worth the price. The lift is speedy, boosting up to over 1000m/min, just around 40s and u will be at the top. There are 3 levels that you can walk around, the lowest is a crystal shop, the middle one is the indoor observatory and the highest is the outdoor observatory. The souvenirs are super pricey, so don't be shocked when u see the price tag! XD!
  • One of the best place on the world. The ding tai Fung located inside the Taipei 101 was great too. The view from the top of Taipei 101 was amazing, it was stunning me.
  • 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.

Where to stay in Taipei
