The Gondola stn is a short 5 min walk from the Taipei Zoo station. If you have an EasyCard you don’t have to wait in line to buy a gondola tix (one-way $120ntd/adult); just walk right up to the tap-on station at the Gondola entrance....More

Beautiful scenery and easy access, just take the brown line of the subway and walk about 300 mts. The góndolas can be pay with the metro card. Restaurants are cheap and offer delicious dishes and teas. Definitely a place for all ages!

A great attraction and very reasonably priced. As others have mentioned there are glass-bottomed gondolas which are worthy of your consideration. We took a glass bottomed one on the way up in the afternoon, and an ordinary gondola car on the way back in the...More

The views in the cable car are great, but be warned the views are not as good from the top! Its $120 (about $5nzd) each way but lasts for around 25 mins so value for money. I waited for the crystal car which didn't take...More

This is a must try when in Taipei. The price is reasonable. If you plan to use the MRT, get the 24hour Taipei fun pass with gondola for $350NTD. This will give you unlimited gondola rides. We went on the gondola with the crystal cabins...More
