MAOKONG STATION AREA – VIA GONDOLA
Tip #1 – select a day when the sky is clear
Tip #2. Avoid the glass bottom version (every fourth cabin) if there is a long line waiting. The gondola is too high above the rain forest canopy to see anything worthwhile below.
Tip #3 If the view is exceptional, chances are the food isn’t. Near Maokong Station.
Tip #4 Go for a walk along ZhiNan Road. There’s a regular bus if you need a ride. Beautiful rain forest scenery far superior to anything available in the tropical north of Australia. Highly under-rated by locals I fear.
Tip #5 Sample some tea but don’t expect same value as McDonald’s.
Tip#6 It can be cool, have a jacket handy.
