I recently went to the Taipei 101 to eat dinner. It is such a big place with a lot of shops in it. I went to the Ding Tai Feng in it, and it tasted great. Highly recommend going there if you want to shop.

We visited here in the late afternoon on Chinese New Year’s Eve and the building was open fully. We paid $NTD 600 for access to the 89th - 91st floors which is a fairly reasonable price considering the brilliant views you get. The elevator up to the 89th floor used to be fastest elevator in the world, and you can see why as it’s super quick and you’re there in about 30 seconds or less! The 89th floor is inside and you get panoramic views of all of Taipei as far as the eye can see on a clear day. The 91st floor is outdoor and you can step outside and really feel just how high up you are. Me being a little bit of a risk taker, I was a little disappointed we weren’t able to go the 101st floor with this particular ticket, where you get harnessed and walk around the very top of the railing, looking out at one of the tallest buildings in all of Asia. The ticket to do this experience though as a non Taiwan resident is $NTD 1,500 which is crazy expensive, especially if both me and my partner were to do it. I suppose it depends if you think it is worth it, but as we are backpacking, we simply couldn’t afford this.

Luxury shopping Mall set in 101. Great shops, good service. We didn't experience the observation deck.

We went there in the afternoon and stayed until night time. The view is very good! One of the best places to visit in Taiwan.

Far better organisation of how people access the obersatory floors and much clearer information about pricing/what you get for your money are required.

Visited with my wife and 15 year old son on 26-12-2022.

After queuing for a long time, my wife discovered that Taiwanese Citizens can get a discount if they show their Taiwan I.D.. After getting copies of those sent to her mobile telephone, my wife and son paid NT$ 300 each to access the Obsevatory (usual price for Taiwanese Citizens is NT$ 420) - whilst, solely on the basis of my being a 'foreigner', I was charged NT$ 600. Hardly a great way to 'attract' foreign tourists to what is claimed to be a 'premier tourist attraction' for foreign visitors...and not very reflective of how Taiwanese usually treat foreign guests.

Also then found we had to queue for 50 minutes longer to access the one working elevator to the Observatory - after being told 30 minutes maximum when we bought tickets. Once in the Observatory, the only areas accessible were indoors - the 89th Floor outside viewing platform was closed, as was the higher level one. No reflection of this in ticket prices charged.

I had previously visted around 18 years ago, when ticket prices were uniform and all areas of the Observatory were accessible. A much better experience to this visit. Also, I usually visit Taiwan every year (and have done so for around 30 years), so am familiar with how things work - I can also speak Mandarin Chinese.

We tried to ask a few question of the staff. There response was "we are too busy to help you" - telling us they are more interested in local visitors rather than foreign tourists. We were shocked by this. Needless to say, we did not stay.

Taipei 101 is the centre of the island's NewYear's celebrations. Taipei 101, which was once the tallest building in the world, lights up with spectacular fireworks which can be seen all over Taipei. If you can't see this amazing display in person, see it on television -- it's broadcast around the globe.

The shape of the building is really cool I have to admit, the view on the 89/91 floors is just ok though, the view wasn't horrible, but it was just a bit boring, but it isn't terrible though, just nothing much, but the shopping mall is definetly worth skipping for sure.

Taipei 101 was once the tallest building on Earth; now it is the tallest building in Taiwan, but it's still exciting. You can get from the first floor to the Observatory in a matter of seconds. As they say, on a clear day you can see forever, or at least most of northern Taiwan. The stabiliser is yellow, its a giant lump of steel designed to keep the building steady in the event of an earth tremor. By the way, the shopping at Taipei 101 is exceptional, it has many prestige marques.
