I've been to other zoos in other cities, and this one is average at best. The animal selection is a been-there-done-that feeling with the standard lions, elephants, camels, giraffes, monkeys. The panda exhibit was extra. Admission was very inexpensive and the facilities are clean. There is a McDonalds if you get hungry.

Not recommendable at all! There are more things to do, and this zoo is not exciting like others, for example the zoo in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The zoo tickets are inexpensive. The little train takes you around to different areas of the zoo and is frequent. The exhibits are okay and good enough for the animals. I liked the orangutan the best. He was drinking water from a running faucet and playing in the water, and when the keeper turned off the source, he was trying... More

We came here to see the baby panda. Due to the heat, they were all indoors in the panda house. The pandas are very popular, so entry is timed (you receive a ticket when you enter the zoo) and they’re very efficient about pushing people along, but the panda house was still extremely crowded with panda fanatics trying to take...

Unfortunately very hot and humid day so did not spend too much time at the zoo, but wanted to see the Pandas, so cute and there were no line ups to get inside!!! Disliked the fact that some of the animals do not have enough space to roam.

For some reason, I always compare animal attractions back to the San Diego Zoo and Sea World. The Taipei Zoo was designed by the same people that designed the San Diego Zoo and it is a great family excursion. The animals seem to have enough space to roam around and the displays all seem respectful of the animals so you... More

This zoo seems to focus on the cuter animals. I really enjoyed the Pandas and Red Panda which just arrived

The zoo is very clean and neat. The entrance fee is cheap, even though it's crowded on the weekend. Good place to spend your time with family and friends.

I didn't plan for this trip to Taipei Zoo but my travel companion insisted on paying it a visit after knowing there were three pandas on display! A few things caught me by surprise: 1) It was huge and way bigger than Singapore Zoo 2) There were animals we don't get to see back in Singapore like koalas, the great... More
