TAIPEI (The China Post) — When people visit the observation deck on the 89th floor of Taipei 101, the first question they ask usually is whether the Taipei landmark really has a “101st floor.” 

Against this backdrop, Taipei 101 has launched a limited-time event “101 Reasons to Visit the Observation Deck,” from Dec.1 to 31, inviting nationals to visit the 101st floor without extra fees.

You can purchase a ticket to the observation deck and paid an extra fee of NT$101 (US$3.55) to ride the elevator up to the 101st floor.   

A tour of the 101st floor used to be an exclusive space accessible only to heads of states, government officials and VIPs.

In addition to the “101st Floor,” Taipei 101 features art installations on the 89th-floor observation deck on the theme of “Let Love Light Up the Night Sky.”  

The 89th floor is also exhibiting the contemporary sculptures created by local artist Hung Yi.   

In the name of “love,” the sculptures can help you relax when you feel tense amid the Covid-19 outbreak.
