Went up around 3.30pm after our visit to the zoo. Cable car ride is scary at certain area, as it is high and windy but overall interesting view. However after walking around the top most station, we saw the longest ever queue for the trip back! Waited for the mini-bus trip down (also long queue) and managed to get on... More

Is a good exposure for kids to view and worth the money. It a 30 min ride. We went up to the Maokong station and have lunch at the local delicacy stall. We have the pork rice, soup noodle, stinky tofu and the red bean n peanut soup with tong yuen (good for cold weather) then we travel back to... More

The Gondola is a great escape from city life. We stopped at the last stop to visit the tea plantation area. We enjoyed the great selection of local food stands and restaurants as well as the paved walkway to visit the fields. In particular, we enjoyed the ice cream spring roll for $40 NT each and had a great Taiwanese... More

It was very easy to get to the Gondola via public transportation. The views are really quite wonderful. The restaurants and tea shops at the top were pretty disappointing but the street food was very good.

Only go on a sunny day, and try to go before 11am! Easy to get to by MRT. The line-up for the gondola can be long (~45min) during the weekend mid-day as it attracts a lot of locals, so arrive early to avoid that. The ride itself is lovely, it surveys the mountain for 20 min. The top features a... More

This gondola (along with the zoo) are easily accessible by subway at the end of the brown line (#1). Although we went at night because we had no other choice, the view over the city lights was still spectacular and the experience fun. Since we opted for the higher cost tickets (still modest), we waited very little for the ride... More

This is my first time ever taking a ride on a cable car. The scenery was nice especially after sunset.

The view is great from the gondola, but be prepared to wait in lines.Once at the top, take a walk down the road and stop at a tea house. Most have beautiful views.
