There is a cinema where they play a movie explaining the process of the construction 101 Taipei Building. You can even buy souvenirs, have coffee or order a meal from the top of the building.

Our favorite was appreciating the views from the top and later once you are walking around the city is a reference where you don’t want to stop taking pictures. One of our favorite views of Taipei 101 was hiking the Elephant Mountain. The best time to do it is at sunset and wait for the night where you can see the lights of the city from the top of the hike. There are a few point of views in different levels.
