《Taipei 101 Observatory Full-Price Ticket》
Located in the bustling Xinyi District, Taipei 101 is a must-see for tourists. Overlooking Taipei City from the Observatory on the 89th floor has become an exciting experience not to be missed when visiting the city.
Entrance: After buying tickets, visitors may watch the multimedia show or visit the souvenir shop before riding the super-fast elevators upward. The Observatory’s elevators are Guinness Record-breaking high-speed pressurized elevators, with a speed of 1,010 meters per minute. Each of the two elevators takes only 37 seconds to reach the 89th floor from the 5th floor entrance.
After arriving at the Observatory on the 89th floor, you will enjoy the best view in the city. On sunny days, you will be able to see the buildings in the city become cute little blocks surrounded by green hills and gasp in amazement at this beautiful and charming city.
In addition to the high-speed pressurized elevators, the building also features a 5.5m-diameter damper weighing 660 metric tons, the world’s largest wind damper. It is also the only wind damper open to the public. It consists of 41 layers of 12.5cm-thick large steel panels welded together. The damper is hung from the 92nd floor to 87th floor, and it is an important piece of Taipei 101’s disaster and wind damage prevention structure. Tourists are actually able to see this spectacular damper when visiting Taipei 101.
The Observatory is also equipped with facilities including high-power binoculars, a beverage bar, photography services & souvenir shops and the world’s highest mailbox. Taipei 101 hopes these thoughtful designs will bring an unforgettable experience to all visitors.
