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!).

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)

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.

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.

Very cool piece of art inside Taipei 101 mall! A circle of all the major cities in the world as well as unknown cities to show how much of
The world is unseen!

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.

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.
