TAIPEI (Taiwan News) – The introduction of the cheapest tickets for the Taipei 101 observation deck in its 15-year history has been a success, reports said Saturday (October 12).
From October 10 until December 30, a ticket costs NT$101 (US$3.27) instead of NT$600 (US$19.45), but only for Taiwanese citizens who can show their ID. The price cut is only valid before noon.
With a four-day Double Ten National Day holiday, the policy has started with a bang, attracting long lines to take the high-speed elevator to the 89th floor, the Central News Agency reported.
Up to 99 percent of the people responding to the price cuts were first-time visitors, and 60 percent were families, according to Taipei 101 management. [FULL STORY]
