Set aside a relaxing day chilling out at the mountain and at one of the tea houses (Red Wood Tea House recommended).

Taipei Zoo and the Maokong Gondola are worth doing and great value. I would recommend the glass bottomed Gondola to give more impressive views below your feet of the tree tops and terrain. Wait time for the glass... More

Its certainly roomy enough for that, i guess just depends on how many people are riding the same time as you? and what they are carrying with them.
