For less than a dollar each way this is a great way to see Taipei and can be combined with a trip to the nearby zoo. Bargain!

Very easy to get to via public transportation. Very nice view and relaxing ride. Highly recommend to set aside more time to explore. Some of the cafes maybe a little pricey and full of tourists.

We came mid-day Saturday right after going to Taipei Zoo. Short wait (around 10min) before getting into the cable car. We were somewhat cramped as our group of 3 had to join a family of 4 in one cabin. Not a good idea to go in summertime as it was too hot..( I was expecting the cable car would be... More

This is our first day activity and if we had time, we would love to go back again. The whole journey is peaceful, quiet and just enjoyable. There were just 3 of us in the cable car and we could even lie down for a photo. The whole route has 4 main stations (where you can get on and off)... More

We tried the glass bottom cabin, which took us about half an hour to wait in queue. There were a few stops before we reached the top at Maokong and the view was nice, although I'd still say the cable car ride at Hong Kong Ocean park is better. Not much to see at Maokong. We visited the "tea museum"... More

If you are a fan of nice views, the Maokong Gondola is a must-see. I went with the crystal cabin (glass floor), which I would definitely recommend. From the gondola you can both see the urban areas of Taipei and the mountainside and tea plantations, and at the top you can relax over a nice cup of green tea. Just... More

We went there after visiting the Taipei Zoo. In fact the gondola (cable car) station was inside the zoo itself. The queue wasn't that long and the fee isn't considered expensive compared to those in Singapore and Hong Kong. We even tried the crystal cabin on our return (which some find it scary to look down through) and it was... More

Went today for the Gondola. We took the crystal cabin and we returned with the normal one. Awesome view of the city and surrounding mountains! We waited a couple of days when finally sky colour was acceptable during the morning (just a little cloudy). Cabin Gondola does not go so fast even though it was a bit scary as soon... More

If you're looking for Taiwan cuisine along the mountains, Maokong is the place for you. Just bring an umbrella during sunny days because it's a long walk. Best to go during cold days.
