You will be given an audio guide once you reach the Indoor Observatory on the 89th floor and be introduced to a total 25 landmarks surrounding Taipei 101. If you fancy a more ‘’authentic’’ experience of winding blowing on your face and the clouds drifting slowly in the sky (daytime of course!), you can take the stairs up to the Outdoor Observatory on the 91th floor.

There are some souvenirs shops and a cafe at the Indoor Observatory, 89th floor. How about sending some postcards to your loved ones from high above!!
