What people are saying about Taipei Zoo

We booked a roundtrip cable car trip for our family, but our tour guide said he will pick us up at the other end and suggested that we get off to see the temples up in the mountains and get back on again to continue to the end point of the cable car, and so we did... it was great. We didn't wait for cable cars, they're always there, but there is a 30-minute wait if u prefer the glass bottom car; it didn't matter to us, since we just wanted to ride the cable car.

Excellent trip to discover this country for the first time. The transport card is a miracle hoped for in France for decades. Is Tpass its smartphone equivalent? The inhabitants are discreet but attentive to providing help or assistance to tourists... All that remains is to discover the east of the country...

Awesome cable car (we enjoyed the crystal cabin, ie. glass bottom), and the zoo was gigantic and well kept. Easy to exchange QR code for tickets to the zoo

Incredible views and a long tranquil ride. Undoubtedly the best gondola I have ever been on.

The zoo and the magnificent landscape are a must-do for young and old
