NTD $60 for a full adult ticket and lots to offer in the zoo. Pandas are the top favourite spot and can get a little crowded... Nonetheless, love how the park is filled with trees so its pretty cooling to walk around.Prepare to spend at least the whole day here to cover all the enclosure.

Wouldn't say I'm a zoo expert. Been to LA, San Diego, and Tokyo zoo. While the Taipei zoo is not as pretty, it is well designed and you get to see EVERYTHING close up. You don't need to walk forever, and it makes a great outing. Highly recommend as something to do for families on a not too hot day.

This was on my must do list as soon as I booked my flight to Taipei because I wanted to see the pandas. It's easy to get to by MRT but my advice is if you are coming on a Saturday, get there early. I arrived at 10.40 and it was super busy already. Tickets price is so so cheap,... More

Taipei zoo is accessible via mrt. Suggest to go there at 9am, i think there are zoo shows. The zoo covers a lot of animals including insects but do not forget to prioritize the main attraction "panda". Suggest to ride Maokong gondola after since it is just walking distance from the zoo. Have lunch first at Mcdo in the zoo... More

Only one panda was just eating bamboo, and other animals was hiding or sleeping. Not much fun. I only loved monkeys- a man was feeding them throwing food, and they catch! and they hold up their hands like saying 'Hey, come on my food!' that's funny!

The zoo is so big and exciting! Have a lot of shelters and most of the places is up hill. Prepare insect repellent and cap. There is water cooler in every shelter.

I love this zoo on a weekday and fall/winter time. Very spacious and great to take the entire family for a fun day out. The entrance fee is only USD2!!! Recommend this place to families with kids
