This is one of the few Zoos where the animals are not sleeping all the time. The place is very clean for both the animals and the visitors. It is well maintained.

This well maintained zoo has a lot of greenery. very similar to other zoos but the point of difference in that the enclosures are spacious and clean and the animals are all active. The icing on the cake are the Pandas.

Undoubtedly very affordable ticket to see animals from most continents in a number of sections but just beware DON'T ever wear short pants during the summer or your exposed body parts especially legs will get bitten by the tiny blood-suckers and end up unbearable itchy and keep scratching like mad! Oh yes I've seen an ultra short pants pretty young... More

I really liked this zoo. We were only there for a few hours, but I felt like we saw a lot and the animals felt close and active. It's quite a large zoo, but felt very manageable. Have you ever been to the San Diego Zoo - that one is way too large. This one is also quite large, but... More

I try to go at least once a week, during the week. I just love the Pandas and during the week it is the best. More quiet, nice to walk around, fresh air. I just wish they would carry on with the new home for the Hippos this development seems to have stopped unfortunately. Combine with Maokong visit.

For a zoo that is a hair over a century year old, this zoo is a magnificent place to spend the day. While it is obvious that this is a very old zoo, much care has been taken to keep it really very well maintained. The animals here are well kept and looked after even with the surprisingly cheap entrance... More

只要花少少的錢就可以親近動物,交通方便,自己開車也有停車位可以聽,要是有更多吃的選擇會更好。 Taipei Zoo is the great place to close to animals, the ticket is cheap, and you can pay by your easy card. The location is ok, just close to the metro station.
