Everything begins from ground zero. You may wait in the line for a while – however, the moment you see the groom, you know that in less than 37 minutes you will be on the top of the world. And indeed, this is exactly how it is going to be.
As the elevator’s door closes, the light goes dark and the only thing you can see are the constellations shining above your head. And then, you suddenly take off. Without doubt, the entire atmosphere conspires to what’s coming next, meaning the 89th floor.
Truth to be told, the reality surpasses your expectations. Even for those who have already climbed another skyscraper, Taipei 101 is a completely different experience.
«Note: The Taipei 101 is designed to resemble a bamboo tree, which signifies the constant prosperity.»
The design of the building itself ignites an urge in you to
approach the windows, so as you get a clear view of the face of Taipei City. The spectacle is simply striking. It will take you a while to decide to move to the other sides of the building, only to find yourself astound again.
The landscape is breathtaking as you see the mount Mu-tzu Shan evading the city. In most cases, we’ve seen humanity violating the nature, but here you will see Mother Nature fighting back!
Certainly, you will feel like leaving your eyes on the windows, thinking that there’s nothing more to see.
－But think twice!
In fact, you can climb the stairs to reach an even higher stage. You can go to the 91st floor where the observation terrace is and have the opportunity to feel the breeze rubbing your face. You can definitely get a better view of the city! Undoubtedly, there is more to than meets the eye!
Such a unique experience comes with a cost, though. Actually, you may find the entrance fee a little bit expensive. The admission fee for adults is 600 Taiwanese Dollars and for students 540 Taiwanese Dollars. Nevertheless, you can get a small discount if you visit as a group. For more information, simply visit the official website of the Taipei 101 . In addition to this, you can buy souvenirs from the gift shop, which has some very nice things. However, you must be prepared to pay a little bit more than usual.
Finally, the exodus may be a little bit tiring due to the long cue. Our advice…. Just, be patient. There are still many things waiting for you in Taipei. Are you ready?
