At 509 meters high, this was the world's tallest building from 2004 to 2010, when the Burj Khalifa in Dubai surpassed it. The tower is reminiscent of a pagoda or a stalk of bamboo and designed to withstand typhoons and earthquakes common in Taiwan...more

The best time is in the evening for the sunset and wait for a while for the city to lightup. The fastest elevetor so far. Lot of seats to rest.

Visited here on a Tuesday afternoon and it wasn’t so busy. I booked my ticket online and missed my 11am slot, but they changed it at the counter for me. Observatory is what you’d expect, amazing sights over Taiwan. Overall, value for money.
