An engineering wander constructed to defy cyclones and earthquakes, Taipei 101 held the honor as the tallest building in the world for six years until 2009. The architectural features and elements of the 509 m (1,700 ft) tall tower are fueled with symbolism. Notice how its design resembles an elongated pagoda or a bamboo stick--recalling growth. The number of levels (101) indicates striving for more than perfection, and the number of segments consisting of the same number of floors (eight) stands for good fortune and prosperity. However, its most popular element is the damper that defied the strongest typhoon in history (2015). The skyscraper houses a huge shopping mall on its first five floors, along with restaurants, clubs, and two observation decks on 89th and 91st floors.

  • Iconic building with amazing views over the city. Must come on a sunny day when you have a clear view, highly recommend.

  • 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...

  • Comparing to malls you can find in Singapore (the land of shopping malls) I think it’s a blend of marina bay sands and Orchard Ions in terms of its high end retails and scale. Visited on a Tuesday afternoon and all of the upstairs coffee shops are unapologetically packed. Do not despair if it happens to you as well. There are a few decent coffee shops to rest up in basement. Four stars because the dinning options aren’t as good as other high end shopping malls.
  • Taipei 101 is the main attraction of Taipei. It’s huge and beautiful and lavish. There is an observatory mall at one side which is accessible to the visitors and for view from the 5th floor of this mall you can buy tickets 🎟.
