Taipei 101 has become an icon of the city. This building most certainly deserves the attention. This building was thoughtfully designed mixing the traditional components with modern once, making a beautiful piece of architecture. The inside: Brand shopping. The view: nice, but I prefer having a view of Taipei 101 from a distinct point.Recommended for:

Good place for food but not much for me compare to most of the tall building. It has a good story tie into the building but still feel like it needs a dash of spice when it comes into the tour guide and the building visit.Recommended for:

Formerly the tallest building in Asia, Taipei 101 is an impressive structure towering over everything else around it. If the weather is good, take a trip to the observation levels and get a birds eye view of the city, and some insights into the design and construction of this skyscraper.

Taipei 101 is a great building that MAKES the skyline of Taipei. However, inside there really isn't much. It's mostly filled with luxury shopping that is more expensive than the US for the same brands.
BUT, it is still a must to check out if it's your first time in Taiwan!Recommended for:

This is a great place if you're a first time visitor to Taiwan. The view here is breathtaking, and I'd often see photographers with their tripods to catch their perfect view :) I've only come here during night, as I imagine, day time might be a little foggy or too bright.
You get to take an elevator from the 5th floor (where the mall is) all the way to the 89th floor (where the observation deck is) in 37 seconds.
From there, you'll see a 360 view of Taipei both from indoor and outdoor. There's also a cute little are where you can send a postcard from there :)
As you leave, they strategically place gift shops and various other vendor areas for you to "peruse" and buy stuff from.
If I remember correctly it was just under $20 USD to ride the elevator up and to see the view (no time limit)Recommended for:

It's a free attraction as long as you don't go up to the top levels. The shops are great (mostly brand name stores) and they have the Damper Baby statues too! I remember going up to the top a few years ago; they explain the architecture of the building and how the building doesn't collapse with the wind (dampers!).Recommended for:

I've been to the top of Taipei 101 only once - not on the clearest of days, unfortunately, but it was still a fantastic view. Mostly though, I came here for the shopping and the fact that it has one of the few English bookstores in Taipei (called Page One - check it out!). The skyscraper has a great selection of restaurants as well...have dinner at Diamond Tony's and then head up to the top to see the beautiful skyline at night.Recommended for:

When in Asia, tall buildings tend to be a huge tourist attraction. Taiwan is no exception. Taipei 101 is the second tallest skyscraper in the world. The views at night are stunning, and there are interesting photo exhibits about the city's history on the 89th floor.Recommended for:

Once, the tallest building in the world. From the outlook, you can tell Taipei 101 is an unique place. The observation deck is the best place to look down the city. (go up there when it's clear!) Just like the Eiffel Tower in Paris, Taipei 101 is worth visiting at least once if you are in Taipei.Recommended for:

The big name stores and restaurants on the first few floors of Taipei 101 are already impressive. When you take the super fast elevator up to the top of 101, it's even more impressive how fast it is. They have headsets with translations to explain the different areas you can see from the top of 101, which is nice. They also have the big stabilzing ball exposed and describe to you how it works in an earthquake. The view of Taipei from the top of 101 is nice, but of course Taiwan doesn't have all the super tall buildings that cities like New York or Chicago have.

If you're in Taipei this building isn't to be missed. As the 2nd tallest in the world with the world's faster elevator why would you want to?
Best time of day is to go before nightfall. This gives you 3 separate opportunities--view the city during the daylight, sunset and at night. Get there early though, the lines move quickly, but you don't want to miss the setting sun!

Terrific building, lots of activity and a great destination for panoramic photography or interesting views of the surrounding neighborhoods. The sub level has a nice grocery area, geared more to Europeans/Americans...where one can buy things like breakfast cereal, etc. There are several big name brands here, and some great restaurants. The food court is fun too, with good hot plates, mongolian grills, etc. The bookstore at the top, PageOne, is fantastic.

I love everything about Taipei 101. There is 101 floors hence the name. The building is beautiful, there is a large inside and plenty of eateries. We ended up at Din Tai Fung for lunch (famous for their dumplings).
Unfortunately it was a rainy day but the view from the observatory (89th floor) was still gorgeous. It was a little scary for me because it's really high!
I would love to go back on a clear day!
