Excellent on a late afternoon into late night. If you're lucky, catch the gondola at the "golden hour". Gondola closes around 11:30 but there are still buses that go down the mountain and the tea houses can help you call a cab. Best food with...More

Great views when you take the gondola to the top. So green and tropical. Check the weather before you visit because if it storms the gondola could be shut down.

So far I love this place the most in Taipei. Nice view over the city, worth all the effort to go up - it is actually not much hiking. If you are lazy, you can take the bus, but it would definitely cut the excitement.

Try Maokong Gondola in order to reach to the top of the mountain. You can experience the mountain scenery view. If you are not a nature lover or tea lover then this is not the place for you to visit. Nothing special on the top...More

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... More

Its certainly roomy enough for that, i guess just depends on how many people are riding the same time as you? and what they are carrying with them.
