TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — As the COVID-19 pandemic has significantly slowed down in Taiwan, Taipei 101 is offering Taiwanese a favorable price for admission to its observation deck through advance online registration and EasyCard payment.
Taipei 101 General Manger Angela Chang (張振亞) said on Tuesday (May 26) that the offer is targeting the family market. From the end of May to the end of September, admission to the observatory is only NT$150 (US$5) per adult with a valid Taiwanese national ID, CNA reported. Additionally, every eligible adult is allowed to take two children under the age of 12 for free.
The building offered NT$101 admission to its observation deck in the fourth quarter of last year, attracting 200,000 visits during the campaign, said Chang. According to a Taipei 101 study, only 2.7 million Taiwanese have visited the deck in the past 10 years, which leaves much room for growth.
Chang estimated that there are about 1 million children under the age of 12 living north of Hsinchu and said she hopes the offer will see the number of visits increase to 350,000 this year.
