Took the Maokong Gondola from Taipei Zoo South Station, and the looong ride was a reprieve from the heat. You can ride the regular cabins or crystal cabins (the ones with glass floors). You get to see some great views of the city and tea...More

longest gondola ride I have ever taken, for the price and length of time this is definitely the best value for money ride. The scenery is awesome too, overlooking almost the entire city! Good for children too as they awe at the great heights and...More

We took the train to Maokong station, walk to the Gondola tower and took the crystal gondola. It's fun. We went up to the hills. Walk around and ate lunch there. Stay for 2 to 3 hrs.

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.

Yes, it’s just what we did. The gondola will take you to the southern entrance of the zoo.
