Taipei 101

No.45, Shifu Rd., Xinyi Dist.

The Basics

Resembling both a traditional pagoda and a stalk of bamboo, Taipei 101 features innovative and energy-saving design. It’s also incredibly safe, designed to withstand earthquakes and typhoon-level winds. Super-fast elevators travel at nearly 38 miles (60 kilometers) per hour and whisk passengers from the 5th floor to the 89th floor in just 37 seconds. The indoor observatory is on the 88th and 89th floors, while the outdoor observatory is on the 91st floor. If you prefer not to journey that high, you can shop and dine at the building’s retail complex on the first five floors.

One of Taipei’s most popular attractions, Taipei 101 features on most city sightseeing tours. Combine the structure with a visit to other attractions like the National Palace Museum or the Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall. Hop-on hop-off bus tours offer the most flexibility. Or book a private tour to experience Taipei 101 along with other must-sees on your list.

Keelung Shore Excursion: Private Taipei City Sightseeing
Jett was our tour guide and we could not have been happier. He had every detail figured out from where to stand for the best view of the changing of the guard to the best views which was exceptional for the beef noodle soup lunch. We came on a rainy day but he had umbrellas and bottled water waiting for us. I was amazed how much we saw in just one day. I highly recommend the tour and especially Jett as the guide.

Taipei Day Tour including Taipei 101, Din Tai Fung and Hot Spring Experience
If you want to do go to Taipei 101 and the hotsprings, do this tour! It was utterly amazing. It is one thing to do these things on your own, but when you have your own tour guide, you get more history and better background of everything! Din Tai Fun was the best! We had such a great time... Tip: when you go there, make sure on your way out of the shopping center, you stop to get the Mango ice cream. For the hotsprings - you don't need anything - get a private room - even if you don't do the tour. Just do the upgrade for the private room, you will not be disappointed. The room is equipped with a shower, towels, shampoo, soap, and comb and a hair dryer. Also the tub has an option to add cold water so you won't burn yourself. We had a view of the valley which was super nice and the whole thing was super relaxing.

The tour was excellent. Iris knew so much about Taipei and took us to all of the historical spots, as well as a great lunch of the famous beef noodle soup. We really enjoyed the tour and Iris. This tour was a great value, also. Iris even sent us pictures she had taken of the four of us. She is a gem!

Keelung Shore Excursion: Private Taipei City Sightseeing
A great tour! We saw in one day what the ship's itinerary would have taken two days to accomplish. The guide and driver both spoke English very clearly and were quite understandable. We were in a small group 8 people that greatly enhanced the experience. We were returned to the ship as scheduled, although we had booked this tour for the first day of an overnight stay of the ship.

Keelung Shore Excursion: Private Taipei City Sightseeing
My 2 daughters and I really enjoyed the Keelung Shore Excursion: I am really glad we chose this personal tour--Taipei City Sightseeing and Beef Noodle Soup Lunch. We were greeting by our tour guide Claire and right from the start we went to the National Palace Museum and saw the jade cabbage and beautiful pieces of art in the museum. It was very crowded but with the private tour we were able to tell Claire how long we wanted to stay and what we wanted to see. Claire was able to time the tour so that we then visited Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall to see the changing of the guards and then Longshan Temple. We then enjoyed a lunch of beef noodle soup at a popular eatery in 101 Taipei where we could see a beautiful view of the city as well as shop in the high end stores in the first 5 floors. We headed back to our port and had plenty of time in the evening to eat dinner and relax before leaving Taipei. I would highly recommend this private tour because the shore excursions you are on a bus and you have no choice but to travel with a large crowd of people and if they are going to the museum you would have to stay 2 hours even if that's not what you wanted to do. It's well worth the extra money to move at your own pace and see what you would like to see. It was more enjoyable. We enjoyed Claire our tour guide who was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Claire was a real delight and I would highly recommend requesting her as your tour guide. Highly recommend the private tour it's worth it!!!!!
