This zoo is very large and its uphill so best to ride the train to the end of the zoo and then walk your way down. The panda visit is controlled and can only be visited once, the ticket is given upon entrance to the zoo. There are plenty of animals to be seen (especially the panda and penguins), and... More

I read that the zoo was the largest zoo in asia somewhere. The zoo really lived up to the billing. You could spend a whole day here. The panda attraction is the highlight here. Extremely crowded on weekends. Not nice to walk in rain so going in nice weather would be good

The Taipei zoo is conveniently located right outside the Taipei Zoo metro station. The admission price was really cheap and the zoo was relatively huge. While the variety of animals isn't lacking, there was only a one or two of each animal. The most visited attraction is the panda house and that I felt that it was too crowded to... More

Be prepared to walk. You will find the Panda "room" right on start of the zoo trip. Get ready for lines and set your camera to burst mode, since you can't stop and watch the panda you need to do it going with the line. Kids are gonna love it!

Relatively nice zoo, some of the animals showing obvious distress at their unsuitable cages. Fake rattle snake is a joke.

I visited the zoo on 11 Nov 2014. We arrived quite late at about 3.30pm and we saw just a few animals. The place wasn't crowded at all, and it was nice just strolling along. Just be mindful that it can get quite smelly at some spots. Regretted that we didn't spend more time in it though. Worth it for... More

Inside Taipei Zoo, just for an entrance fee of NT$60, you can see a variety of animals, including koala, panda and penguin that are quite rare. The zoo is huge, recommend to take shuttle train to visit those animals.

I liked the fact it only cost the equivalent of $2.50 AUD to visit the zoo and see the pandas. Only dislike is it can get crowded. My tip is to go either during the week or first thing when it opens.

Pandas! What a great enclosure to see pandas! Really cheap zoo by most standards and you can pay with the Easy Card, so load that up to skip the line. Get the ticket on the way in to see the pandas during your specified time and then wander a great big zoo with lots of attractions. We were a bit... More

Upon entering the zoo at 9.30am, we were given Panda entry tickets for 10.30am timing. Took the kids to the Children's Zoo then slowly walked twds the Panda house. Felt rather rushed at Panda viewing enclosure. We had to quickly walk through it because the staff kept telling the visitors to move on move on. After Panda house, we took... More
