Taipei 2014 (Part 4 – Maokong Gondola | Taipei Zoo)

Maokong Gondola

Directions: Take the Taipei Metro to Taipei Zoo station and follow the signs going to Maokong Gondola.

What’s special here: Compared to Ngong Ping 360 (Hong Kong), I can consider the price for a ride at Maokong Gondala as quite cheap. There’s also no price difference between the regular cabin versus the crystal cabin. If you’re brave enough, I highly recommend taking the crystal cabin. Round trip ticket costs TWD 120.

Taipei Zoo

Directions: If you’re coming back from the gondolas, trace your back to the Taipei Zoo metro station and then follow the signs for the Zoo.

What’s special here: Well, it’s a huuuge zoo! I suggest going here on a weekday though as this is a very popular destination among locals. The entrance fee is very cheap at TWD 60 for adults and TWD 30 for children. I would also suggest that you bring your own food as the stores inside are not able to keep up if there’s a huge number of visitors. I wish we could have explored more areas when we visited but the zoo is fully packed that day.

Mother nature?
