The zoo was very clean and well kept. The landscape was beautiful. I was lucky and got some good photos of the Pandas.

Having visited zoos in San Diego, Chicago, Houston and New York, I was surprised at how big the Taipei Zoo is. It is easily reached by the brown line on the MRT and costs only 60 Taiwanese dollars to get in. The star of the moment is Yuan Zai, the baby panda. After purchasing your zoo ticket, you will be...

The location of the zoo on this app's map is currently wrong, so look for Taipei Zoo MRT station, instead! I went there yesterday via MRT to see pandas.

My sister and I had a really great time here despite having many friends and family members questioning our decision. The Taipei Zoo was well designed and it was easy getting from one attraction to the next. We got to see 'Duan Duan' and 'Yuan Zai' the pandas! Make sure you buy a ticket to see them at the entrance... More

The zoo was larger than I expected and well laid out with the enclosures being modern and clean. Be prepared to walk unless you want to join the endless queue for the zoo train. The zoo is located on the side of a hill with a steady incline from just past the entry gates to the rear sections. The Metro... More

Get to the last line of brown line station of Taipei Zoo and walk for 5mins to get to the zoo. Entrance fee is pretty cheap and it's a big zoo to walk around and spend time with the animals. There is the maokong panda as well, it's fun!

Easy to go with metro and very cheap - NT$30 with student card, even normal just NT$60. To see pandas you have to line in, the pandas are behind a glass and the staff rushes you, so not very pleasant experience. However, there are lots of animals and you can get quite close some of them. Good attraction especially for... More

All museum in Taipei are closed on Monday, but this zoo is open, and cheap. Student is $1, older is free, regular price $2. We spent 4 hours there. My 19 yrs daughter & 74 yrs mother had a great time.
