I am not into cable car ride because of some mild fear of heights, but I summoned all my courage and took the ride and boy, it was awesome. Nothing to fear, just enjoy the scenery and before you know it you arrived at the...More

Well worth the money. For $120, you get to ride the gondola for a good 20 minutes. The view along the way is spectacular. Highly recommend the crystal cabin. There is a different queue for that, but it’s well worth the extra waiting time.

We visited mid week, when there was no line and it was easy and quick to get in. We had the crystal car as part of our tour, however it really wasn’t necessary. We hardly looked at the glass floor, as we were so busy...More

My family had a great time! Got a glass bottom gondola. Great views, very friendly, clean. Go early because lines are shorter. Great family activity when combined with lunch and tea at the top! Great time!

I love riding gondola at Maokong, but queuing line was too long for glass floor one then regular. Took your easy card for convenience.

We enjoyed the cable car ride to Maokong. It was relaxing and showed the nature side of Taipei. However, when we got there, all the signs were in Chinese so we did not really know where to go or what to do. We ate the...More

We used the Taipei Zoo Station to get on the gondola to Maokong. This station was just down the road from the Taipei Zoo MRT station. We went through using the Taipei day pass with the gondola. We went up on the eyes of Maokong...More

This was so so so fun! We went on a somewhat rainy day, but it didn't take away from any of the gorgeous views. We didn't get one of the glass-bottom gondolas,but it was still a great ride. It was very smooth and slow enough...More

Hi Joelette D, we just came back from Taipei last week. Based on our experience, if you intend to go to Yehliu, Jiufen and Shifen, you will not have enough time for the Maokong area. The Maokong Gondola was not spectacular... More
