Taiwan   Get a bird's eye view of Taipei
Riding this cable car will unwind you from the hustle and bustle of Taiwan’s capital to the top of a mountain where the beautiful and peaceful village of Maokong sits. Maokong is a popular place for tea culture and viewing the night scenery of Taipei City.

Eyes of Maokong Gondola have glass-bottoms, so you will be granted a bird's eye view of the landscape below you as you make your way to the mountain’s summit! Passengers not only can enjoy the unbelievable panorama view of Maokong but also experience the sensation of soaring through the sky.

The gondola operates year-round, except on Mondays and holidays.

There are some wonderful teahouses in Maokong so don't miss to taste their famous tea! The tea farms here are famous for Bochon tea and Taiguan Ing.

If you decide to stay in the village until dusk you will be rewarded with the twinkling lights of the city of Taipei while colorful light bulbs lit in front of every building give Maokong a mysterious feel.
