hkskyline's 2008 - TAIPEI #9 : Maokong Gondola

My impression of the Maokong Gondola was not that good. For a new cable car, I thought the ride was a bit too bumpy and noisy. Later, after I left Taiwan, I heard on the news the system was not safe ...









Taipei 101 in the distance









After a while, we reached a turning point, where the cable car would turn about 90 degrees. Some empty cars were parked here.





























We're there!





The top end has some tea shops and restaurants, and is generally serene. There were quite a lot of visitors though.
