Why Should I Go?

Want to take a trip to the top of Taipei 101? The Taipei 101 Observatory is open every day from 9AM to 10PM.

The observatory is spread over 4 floors where visitors can enjoy the fantastic scenery and learn about the engineering marvel that is Taipei 101, the tallest green building the world.

5F Taipei 101 Mall - Here, visitors purchase tickets and take the Guinness World Record breaking high-speed elevator to the observatory on the 89TH floor, traveling at 1,010 metres/min (60.6KPH), taking only 37 seconds to ascend to the observatory at the 89TH floor.

89F Indoor Observatory - At 382 metres above the ground, the observatory deck provides an unobstructed view of the city in all directions. The observatory deck also houses a museum where visitors can learn about the design process and construction of Taipei 101 and other similar large-scale construction projects around the world, including a free audio tour in eleven languages, as well as high-powered binoculars, refreshments, and professional photography service.

88F Beauty of Taiwan Multimedia Corridor, Super Big Wind Damper, Treasure Sky - The corridor connecting the two decks is designed to showcase the natural beauty of Taiwan, providing 270-degree views of well-known scenic locations in Taiwan, leading to the engineering marvel known as a wind damper, a 5.5 metre diameter, 660 ton weight suspended within the building to offset the force of wind and help 101 stand upright. Also included is Treasury Sky, a collection of unique jewel crafts.

91F Outdoor Observatory - The outdoor observatory is accessible by stairs from the 89TH floor. From the outside, it's possible to view the spire at the 508 metre high apex, but watch out for the strong winds! Inside the building on the 91ST floor is a small theatre showcasing films about the construction and the annual New Years fireworks display. 91F is only open on days with favorable weather conditions.

What Else?

Official regulations stipulate visitors with "improper attire or slippers" will not be permitted entry, and food is not permitted.

Both 5F and B1 provide entrances to the observatory deck, however, as B1 is designated for (primarily mainland Chinese) tour groups, individual travelers are highly recommended to enter from 5F.

It is recommended to visit the Taipei 101 Observatory during late afternoon to catch both day- and night-time scenic views of Taipei City. Afterward, head down to B1 to enjoy an amazing Taiwanese dinner at Din Tai Fung (鼎泰豐) (don't forget to order xiaolongbao!).

The observatory is the finish line of the Taipei 101 Run Up an athletic event where runners climb a total of 2,046 stairs from the 1ST to the 91ST floor.
