The gondola was nice though not great, but worth the ride at least one time. The Taipei Tea Promotion center was pretty boring and we didn't think it was worth the extra walk.The top of the mountain was very nice with some great little tea...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.
