Taipei Zoo is one of the top ten city zoos in the world. With more than 400 animal species in the park, it is the largest zoo in Southeast Asia. Come see animals you would never encounter in your daily lives here! The Taipei zoo is home to rare and precious species such as the Blue Pheasant, Sika Deer, Formosan Black Bear. There are also adorable animals such as pandas, koalas and penguins which are popular among the public. Gain a better understand of the living environment and habits of different animals and learn more about ongoing conservation efforts and research.

The Maokong Gondola provides a scenic route to the Taipei Zoo. With a total length of 4.03 kilometers, the Maokong Gondola is the first gondola in Taipei City. It takes about 30 minutes for a one-way ride. The three most beautiful moments to take the gondola are after rain, when the sun is setting, and when the lights of the city are shining at night. As the gondola passes over the undulating terrain, you can glimpse moving MRT trains, the park along the Jingmei River, and the "giraffe" incinerator. When you reach the second stop, the gondola takes a big turn, and you will enjoy a panoramic view of the landscape, including vehicles moving on the freeway below. After passing the Zhinan Temple Station, you will enter a steep V-shaped gully. This is the climax of the gondola ride, leaving you an unforgettable experience.
