It's very nice place for hang out with Friends and family but in rainy times it is not convenient at all and lot of construction going on at the zoo, better try on Sunny day and must watch the African Elephants and Gorillas!

Very nice Zoo to visit; well maintained. The visit takes about 2.5-3 hours so try to arrive before 2,00pm if you want to fully enjoy it as the Zoo closes at 5,00pm. The Pandas are are a must to see.

The zoo is really modern and there is lots of variety of animals! there's plenty to keep adults and kids occupied and the space was well thought out. in the future though, i would suggest to other travellers, go in, grab the tickets to see the pandas, and then go to the panda area. after that, go back to the...

This place is a good spot for nice day out (if it's not raining only) On the brown line mrt it is the last station which is either connected to Maokong gondola also. In the zoo there are so many restaurants also to buy cheap food and don't forget to have a look at the African Elephants and White tiger!

The zoo is very modern in that the animals are in natural surroundings rather than behind cages. It reminded me a lot of the DC and San Diego zoos. It is quite large but easily walk-able and nicely signed throughout. The big attraction are the panda bears. They were actually moving around when we saw them (they are usually notoriously... More

Good collection of the animals. As recommended by many people, you can take the cable car to the upper end of the zoo and walk your way down. But walking up hills isn't too bad when you bring a stroller for the young kids.

We were there August 2014. The whole place smelled of poop. It was so overwhelming....totally disgusting. The enclosures were overgrown with weeds. Not very well kept at all. The panda enclosure was ok but over crowded with people...everyone shoving and pushing. Overall the stink was over bearing !!

The Taipei zoo is easily as assessable via their metro line and offers amazingly cheap admission fee (30nt weekend summer promotion; 60nt for regular admission) for the selections of animals you can see. The zoo is quite big but there is a tram that takes people to the other end of the zoo for an additional fee of 5nt. I... More

This zoo is my must-go place in Taipei. I have been there for thtee times and am still loving it. Very educational. It has a wide variety of animals, from insects to birds, from African animals to Australian and even arctic animals. They are still expanding the zoo for more! They have introductions for each species, where some of them... More

It is a great experience. This zoo trip can be done together with Maokong Gondola. Do visit the zoo early, and head up to Maokong Mountain for sunset before heading down. The zoo is very huge with a large collection of animals. The entrance fee is very affordable at NT30 during weekdays. slightly more during weekends. the major highlight of... More
