It was a hot afternoon but so worth it looking the view inside the cabin/car. You can see Taipei City with lots of trees and the Taipei 101 from afar. Went to Taipei Zoo first, then rode a shuttle to Maokong cable station.

Only 120 ntd to reach the highest station. there are few shops selling tea and eateries. You can drink tea and go hiking or walk at the trails.

The Maokong Gondola offered us great views of Taipei. At the top, you get off and walk around . Restaurants, tea shops and coffee shops are everywhere.

This is my frist time to ride a cable car, the views are incredible. When you're in the last station, wherever you go every road there are restaurants.

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!
