Some say it looks like a pagoda and others say it looks like a stalk of bamboo, but what is certain is that Taipei 101 strikes an unforgettable pose on the Taipei skyline. One of the city's most popular attractions, the tower is Taiwan’s tallest building and gives stunning 360-degree views of the city and its landmarks from the Taipei 101 Observatory.
- Taipei 101 89th Floor Indoor Observatory
Holder of the title of the world's tallest building until it was surpassed by the Burj Khalifa in 2010, the 509m giant is equipped with one of the world’s fastest elevators, rocketing up to the 89th floor in a dizzying 37 seconds. Be surrounded by the cityscape stretching in every direction and explore the urban sprawl with super high-power binoculars from Taipei 101 Observatory deck. There’s also plenty of multimedia to discover that tells the story of the tower’s inception and creation.
- The Wind Damper
Even if you’re an architectural rookie, you’ll love seeing the bizarre and beautiful wind damper hidden inside the tower’s upper section. This enormous 5.5-meter wide, 660-ton ball is suspended inside the tower to help balance it during typhoons and earthquakes, and although it’s a regular feature in many tall and slim buildings, it’s rare to catch sight of this curious feat of science. Pop in to see it from the Taipei 101 Observatory 88th floor and learn all about it.
- 91st Floor Outdoor Observatory
Go right to the top of this magnificent structure when you climb up to the Outdoor Observatory on the 91st floor, where you can see the very tip of the spire that sits 508 meters above the ground. Feel the fresh breeze and feel as though you’re sitting among the clouds before you catch one of the films on display in the theater about the construction of the tower. Taipei 101 Observatory is one of Taipei’s most popular spots, so book in advance with Trip.com to secure your place!
