Moon-watching with Hello Kitty in Maokong

Still wondering about what to do for the upcoming Moon Festival? Taipei Rapid Transit Corporation (TRTC) invites you to come and watch the moon in Maokong with Hello Kitty!

Those tired of all the barbecue parties can consider leaving the fanfare of city life behind and visit the mountains by taking the gondola with exterior wraps spotlighting Hello Kitty.According to the company, the Maokong station at the end of the gondola trail offers several venues with a great view of the moon and the city. Located on the left of the station is a plaza. This is a great place for those who don’t want to walk too far.From the right side of the station exit, visitors can access a newly established wooden platform by climbing the staircase. Eating moon cakes and enjoying the view of the moon from the platform is a great way to spend the night during Moon Festival.There are also several outdoor pavilions located around Zhinan Temple Station. The views from these pavilions are popular among couples who frequent this area – especially the great view of Taipei City under the night sky.Finally, before you embark on your journey back home, remember to pick up Hello Kitty souvenirs at the Maokong Gondola’s Taipei Zoo Station. Many options are available, including postcards, mugs, and EasyCards.TRTC reminds visitors who want to take the Maokong Gondola during the Moon Festival long weekend to make reservations ahead of time to avoid the crowd. The reservation system (Chinese) is available online at: https://web.trtc.com.tw/c/gondola/booking/
