很有名,人也不少,但是景色也就是那樣啦~不過如果你會在那裡呆一整天可能感受會比較不一樣。Anyway,It's famous but not so great!

SUper convenient and quiet on a weekday. Cheap to get up to the top of the mountain for a quiet walk and enjoy some tea. Do plan for the whole day and if you are doing alot of hiking then be prepared with food and supplied. Can be expensive to get food once you are up there..

The Gondola is more that 4 km and you only pay 50 TWD one way. It brings you to an area with numerous tea-houses that afford great views of the surrounding cityscape.

Been there like 3-4 times with friends and family. Its a beautiful journey up the hill by this Gondola. GO there by the evenings to see amazing view of Taipei city and the amazing Taipei 101. The ride up hill leaves you spellbound, thinking you are in a fairy land. On the top, enjoy a stroll, have some coffee or... More

When we arrived at the station, there was a super long queue at the ticketing booth, we were told to wait at least two hours before we got the ticket, and another wait to take the cable car to go up. The scene is not amazing. Luckily, there was a taxi driver who advice us to take taxi to go... More

One of the "must do" attractions in Taipei Done several times : best in sunny clear days or at sunset (avoid thought during rainy days) If not scared of height, try the gondola with the transparent floor

Good place to visit, only need an EASYCard. At the top of the mountain, not many good places to eat. Better than the Langkawi, Malaysia gondola if you like to compare!
