Collection of tickets were easy as there were self-collection/purchase booths. We did not have to join the long queues to buy a ticket. We were also able to enter before our booking time as we arrived ahead of schedule. Splendid view of Taipei city from...More
Booked online with klook. I Didn't know how to collect the ticket at the vending machine (wrong password), so I joined the ticket line. There was no waiting time that day at 3pm and just a short wait to go up. The visibility that day...More
On a clear day the views of Taipei are very good. But at over $110 nz it’s an expensive way to spend an hour.
But from now on you can always say that hey I’ve been up there when you see the tower on a...More
The Taipei Observatory gives us an amazing views of the City in all four sides of the building.
An iconic building having an amazing seismic damper on the 89th floor.
We went there with my family between 5:30 to 8:00 P.M. and watch the sunset...More
This is an iconic and spacious mall with a good range of dining options to suit most palates and budgets.
There is so much space in the building that I found that apart from the extremely crowded food court and restaurants in the basement, it...More
Reached the place early in the morning to skip the queue and crowd. It was well worth of it as I could walk around and have a great view of Taipei. Skip the part on taking photo before going up the observatory. It is just...More
depends on what you would like to see. If you see taipei by night, then 5 to 6 PM is ok. if you want to see taipei by morning, around lunch time is ok. just make sure there are less fogs so that you may see the view clearly

Based on the timing of your layover in Taiwan, there is definitely sufficient time for you to travel to Taipei 101. From the Taoyuan International Airport, catch a 5-minute shuttle (green Ubus) to the High Speed Rail (HSR) station. Buses run every 10-15 minutes from 7:00 am. Take the High Speed Rail to Taipei. Travel time is between 20 to 25 minutes at TWD350 per adult on the standard return ticket. There is the earliest arriving train at Taipei Station at 7.30 am. From Taipei Station, change train on the red line toward Taipei 101 Station. The Taipei 101 is open between 9.00 am to 10,00 pm daily. Ticket is priced at TWD500 per adult and this can be purchased on level 5. While at the observatory between 9.00 am to 10.00 am, you will be able to witness the shadow of Taipei 101 cast against Elephant Mountain (象山, Xiangshan). If you intend to have breakfast up at the observatory, you will be disappointed. Unfortunately shops do not open as early as you will arrive at Taipei 101. Shops open at 11.00 am. You may have to look for simple breakfast at either the closest 7-Eleven or McDonalds. And because you have to be back at the Taoyuan International Airport by 12 noon, you wouldn't have time to experience the local fare. If only you had more time, I would have recommended for you to have a good brunch/lunch at Din Tai Fung located in the basement of Taipei 101. In fact, I would recommend an overnight layover in Taipei before you head to Bangkok. There is a lot to see and local food to savor.
P.S.: Just so that you know, there are food choices available at the Taoyuan International Airport. These can be found in the transit areas. Value for money. Have a good time in Taipei and safe travels.
