The Maokong Gondola runs across a couple of hills in the southern part of Taipei. While it offers some decent views of the city along the way (although not nearly as fantastic as those from Elephant Hill), it somehow lacks any WOW effect. Taiwan offers...More

Come early. We came around 10am and the line was long already for the crystal cabin. You should try the crystal cabin for full experience.

Maokong Gondola is a pleasant 20 minute ride and a slightly cheaper way to get a great view of the city compared to the Taipei 101 observatory. While it’s at the edge of the city, you still get a pretty good view of the city...More

This was worth every NTD. It cost 120 from start to end. The staff were very nice and helpful. They group you together with your companions so you don't have to worry about being in different gondolas. The view is amazing.

We went on the Gondola ride a few weeks ago: my wife and I and my two sons (one 5, the other celebrating his 10th birthday that day!) Tickets were reasonable and the wait wasn’t too long. We opted for the crystal glass bottomed Gondola...More
