For relatively little you can take a ride that's nearly a half hour each way and with some great views. You get to see a bit of the city from high up, the tops of some tall buildings, lots of mountain trees, some temples, and...More

Easy to get to via metro, and reasonably priced. All tickets are one-way, so you need to buy a return ticket at the top of the mountain. This is a very pleasant excursion from the “downtown” area. The site is co-located with the Taipei zoo,...More

A short talk from Taipei zoo LRT. Cost NT280 per person for 2 stops. The cable car ride itself was comfortable. Have taken some beautiful photo for the 2 stops. Highly recommended.

Went to 四哥的點 and had a jar of milk tea with fried rice. The fried rice is very presentable and delicious but a tad bit oily. Will come again to chill out next time I’m here!

Not crowded on a weekday morning. Closed on Mondays. We waited a few extra minutes for the crystal cabin with clear floor going up- very good views. Went for refreshing iced tea at the summit, back down in a regular cabin gondola.

Do not forget to include Maokong Gondola in your itinerary when you visit Taiwan. Have the chance to hike in the hills or taste the best tea in Maokong via gondola with fiberglass bottom, truly an unforgettable experience

great way of getting somewhere (maokong and the temple halfway) - the long waiting line is for those who want a cabin with glass floor. You can choose what line you take

This will give you a different, yet equally wonderful, view than the observatory at Taipei 101 or the stair-filled climb of Elephant Mountain. Easy to get to via pubic transit, just take the metro line (can't remember...either blue or green line) to the end of...More

Maokong Gondola is one of the longest cable car ride Ive ridden. It gives you a nice aerial view of Taipei and the mountains. Station starts at Taipei Zoo Station and Ends in Maokong Station... You should try this.

While on the cable car, we are looking the beautiful scenery of the mountain and all nearby places. Just amazing and also enjoyable.

You can buy the pass at 7 Eleven’s or at MRT stations and is very easily available. If you have only two days, as the other two days you have booked tours, suggest you plan the days and then decide if you would like to buy... More

We were there recently (12th to 16th June), but we did not do the Taipei Zoo.
