Taipei 101 Observatory, Taipei
(4.1/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web)
Enjoy panoramic views of Taipei City from Taipei 101 Observatory, one of the tallest buildings in the world. Imposing itself over the city like a giant telescopic pagoda, this 509.2 m (1,671 ft) tall skyscraper has two observation areas on its 88th and 89th floors, which you can reach in 40 seconds by a high-speed, silent elevator. Occasionally, you may be allowed up to the open rooftop on the 91st floor. Check out the building's huge gilt iron harmonic absorber, which stabilizes the structure during typhoons and earthquakes. This eco-friendly building has a food court in its basement, with close proximity to some of the classiest shopping outlets in the city. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Taipei 101 Observatory by using our Taipei trip itinerary planner.

  • 台北最具特式及最有代表性的地標. 最好先網上買票, 因為如果沒有預先買票的話, 就有有機會要現場排隊買票了. 
  • 當地人應該不會去!!因為價格不斐~去象山或其他高處山區看夜景可能會好更多~比較適合觀光客體驗台北市的風情~當作紀念跟拍照! 
  • Yes the line to get up to the observatory can be long; yes Taipei's skies can be pretty murky; yes you're made to exit through a gauntlet of overpriced gems and jewelry for sale before you can leave t...  more »

  • 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.
