Huge place. Exhausting walk on a hot day. Very cheap but place was a bit run down. Toilets near McDonalds were clean and airy.

Hop on the tram as it will take you around the zoo. Or you can walk around and can look at the animals and take pictures. There is a steep hill to walk going back. Perhaps you can catch a ride with the next tram. They have a night safari, which I feel is the same as the day. A... More

We intended to go on the Gondola but found out that it was closed. We decided to go to the Zoo since it was at the same MRT stop. Great decision. I'm a big panda fan so it was great. Cost of the entrance fee included getting in to the Panda house - very inexpensive and worth it. No real... More

The zoo is very accessible and you can just take the metro. Although the zoo is quite big it was quite easy to get around with getting lost! However try to wear comfortable walking shoes when you go and it may be hard to enjoy yourself on a really hot day!!! Overall, I think the zoo is a great attraction... More

A nice family visit. Easy to get there. Visited the zoo. Hop on the tram to save some time. Panda viewing was a bit of hurrying and luck. Luvs d koalas & penguins. Plenty of walking due to the size. Easy to move to next venue i.e. Maokong gondola.

The zoo is surprisingly huge and there is ALOT of stuff to see! The entrance fee is very cheap (NT$60 per pax). The zoo is very well maintained and interesting. A good attraction in Taipei. We visited the Maokong Gondola first then took the cable down to Taipei Zoo. You can just spend a day at the area because it... More
