Ever since the completion of Taipei 101 construction, both domestic and foreign tourists are really looking forward to get a panoramic view of the Greater Taipei from the top floor. Besides, tourists will also be able to the world’s largest tuned mass damper, which is a device mounted in the structure to maintain the balance of the building. You can also buy a postcard at the souvenir shop with a commemorative stamp on it and send your blessing from the magnificent skyscraper.
Taipei 101 features both indoor and outdoor observatories where you enjoy the whole view of Taipei. Entering from the entrance of Songzhi Road, you can purchase your ticket on the 5th floor by taking the elevator on right-hand side. Adult ticket is NT$400 and discounted ticket is NT$370. Then you can line up and get ready to take the world’s fastest elevator in the Guinness Book of Records, running at 1010 meters per minute. It only takes 37 seconds from the 5th floor to the 89th floor. When the elevator is moving, the digital screen will display the height of the current floor and the number of seconds, so that people can truly experience the thrill of high speed.
The Indoor Observatory on the 89th floor stands 382 meter above the ground. If necessary, you can rent recorded voice tours in eight languages and feel free to enjoy a 360 degree view. The Indoor Observatory also offers observatory telescope and gift shop.
In addition, according to the weather conditions, you may have a chance to reach the Outdoor Observatory on the 91st floor and to enjoy an entirely different viewing experience. Coming here, the Outdoor Observatory definitely is a great spot to enjoy the fascination of the wind and the view.
The Indoor Observatory is open from 10 am to 10 pm. Different weather and different time of a day will bring different scenery. Whether it is in the morning or in the evening, come to Taipei 101 when the weather is good, and you will be impressed by its splendid view!
