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.

  • We visited the TAIPEI 101 Tower very easy access staff always ready to help you. Access is through the beautiful shops of luxury, decorated with fresh orchids, the visit must be done by day to have a point of view on the city and also night (the Tower changes color every day).

  • Like it or not, it is one of the popular tourists' destinations. We went one evening and saw a few organised groups of tourists went there with guides. The Observatory is above Breeze Centre, which ha...  read more »
  • The observation deck is the best part of the Taipei 101. The rest of the building is an expensive mall. The line to use the elevator is long, as is the line to take the elevator back down, so make you...  read more »
  • wonderful experience throughout in Taipei 101. The tickets are extremely easy to buy and there are directions all over the mall on how to get in. each ticket will cost 600 TWD. You board the lift (also the fastest in the world) and it shoots up to 89th floor in less than 1 minute. The view is magnificent and you get to see the whole of taipei. If the weather is good you also get to go to the 91th storey though there is nothing much to see. the grills obscure most of the view. you can also see the stabilizer on the 88th floor which is quite intriguing. overall a great destination which will only take about 1 hour of your time less queuing.
  • 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.
  • Great views of Taipei from the observation floors. There is the main floor with 360 views that is enclosed and an open air floor above with limited views. The lines to buy tickets and get up to the observatory can be very long. The line exiting can also be very long so plan accordingly.
  • Expensive but totally worth it. It gives such great views of the city in every direction. The binoculars were free (which in most other places always ask for coins-so great plus) and there was a short talk+description of history of each area/direction we were looking at. Thoroughly enjoyed. My favourite part was the damper baby. It was so cute and the video which tells you all about the damper baby and its function. Very educational. We got a damper baby t-shirt as a souvenir too.
  • Worth to go up. But surely quite expensive. Nothing much to do. But do try the mango ice with ice cream. Really nice. View is awesome. Speed of the lift is really breath taking. I got to experience 5.6 magnitude earth quake while on the 89th floor and it was something. You get to feel how the building actually shook.
