There’s more to Taipei 101 than its 360-degree views. While you’re in the area, you might want to consider taking part in these activities before saying goodbye to the tower’s fantastic views.
1. Taipei 101 Damper
Taipei 101 was once the tallest skyscraper in the world, falling second Dubai’s Burj Khalifa only recently. However, it still holds the world record for the largest mass damper in the world, and it’s open for all guests to see!
2. 91st Floor Observatory
Be one with the clouds at Taipei 101’s 91st floor observatory! Depending on the weather condition, guests are allowed to head up from the 89th floor to the 91st floor to experience the outdoor observatory. And although this is an exciting experience, we’d like to remind you to literally hold on to your hats.
3. World’s highest Starbucks
Coffee lovers out there can’t miss out on a visit to the world’s highest Starbucks! But fair warning – getting a table here is not easy. Apart from the fact that you’ll need to call in for a reservation, you must be in smart casual, and spend at least NTD 300 (Php 514.00) to secure a table. Seems a lot for coffee, but with a view this good – it’s hard to pass up!
