This ride is not for those who have fear of heights but I made it taking the crystal cabin with glass bottom (no photos of cabin from my phone because I was holding the arms of my friends all throughout the ride😉). The mountain view...More

We took the gondola to the Temple Station after visiting the zoo in early afternoon, we waited around 15 minutes and shared the gondola with other travelers. The ride lasted around 20 minutes and the views of Taipei were breathtaking.

Whether you choose to queue for the crystal see through floors or the regular gondola, you are going to get great views. It can be hair-raising if you are not into heights. Otherwise, I’d recommend taking it up to Maokong at least once. I did...More

This is a fun scenic way to reach the top of Maokong. The ride takes about 20-30 minutes upwards and the weather we had (downcast, but bright) was perfect. Up on Maokong there are street food stalls (just look for them or ask around) or...More

We were visiting it on a rainy day. The view should be excited and great but unfortunately we did not have chance to enjoy. The ride itself was good and took around 15 minutes to reach to Maokong.

The gondola is a good way to get a great view of the city. If you stand up in the gondola, you can fit you hand and camera out the window for a clear shot. The side door also has a window that allows you...More

A fun way to look at Taipei; from the top via the Gondola. Inexpensive and offers great views. Not for people who are afraid of heights. 100NT to go up from Taiwan Zoo and back another 100NT to Taiwan Zoo. At the top of Maokong...More
