In 1914, when Taiwan was still under Japanese sovereignty, a Japanese man whose last name was Oe, established a private zoological garden in Yuan-shan in the northern suburbs of Taipei City. With the increase of social awareness concerning natural conservation and environmental education, the Taipei Zoo, well-equipped with expertise regarding animal care and the knowledge of natural history, has committed itself to serving as a leader in environmental education and wildlife conservation.
After the zoo you will take the Maokong Gondola to explore the Maokong and enjoy the nature and the tea plantations.
The Maokong Gondola (Chinese: 貓空纜車; pinyin: Māokōng Lǎnchē) is the first gondola lift transportation system in Taipei.
