The Maokong gondola stops at Taipei Zoo, Zhinan Temple and the Maokong station. The Maokong station stop at the top of the mountain offers a panoramic view of the city and visitors can try delicacies like noodles with tea oil and glutinous rice with...more
Nature and mountain is a great change from the busy Taipei city and many tea houses to enjoy a local meal with fresh and delicious dishes to select from. The cable car or gondola ride is a must to enjoy the view from above, but...More

When told that we would be taking the "Gondola" to Maokong Mountain, I wondered wildly how the flat-bottomed rowing boat ride would be like... No, we were not in Venice and It was not the famous Gondola boat ride.
The first stop in this Taiwan...More
this was a great trip after the zoo visit but my only wish is for an enterprising tour-guide at the end of the ride to take you on a 'hop on, hop off'' travel around to the different tea shops. We couldn't decide and opted...More
Serene place to take a late morning stroll, stop by a shophouse for a cup of freshly brewed cheese tea. Highly recommend the Osmanthus infused Iron Buddha!

Taipei Zoo and the Maokong Gondola are worth doing and great value. I would recommend the glass bottomed Gondola to give more impressive views below your feet of the tree tops and terrain. Wait time for the glass bottomed gondola was only slightly longer that the standard ones. Was about a 30 minute train ride back in to Taipei City.
Taipei 101 is also very impressive, Night view was amazing but needs to be clear. Also a shopping area with in the tower and a new strip only a few minutes walk from the base.
