This zoo has a lovely layout and everything you might want to see. There are English versions of all the maps, etc so you can make sure you don't miss anything. It may be just because we went on a rainy day in March but there were no queues for anything. Unlike other zoos I've been to, the food inside... More

The Taipei zoo is worth a visit - due to its size, it's at least a day's outing. It's conveniently located next to the Taipei Zoo Mrt station. Entrance fees can be paid by MRT card, and includes a timed visit to the panda exhibit (although the timing is not very strictly adhered to). The zoo also has facilities for... More

The zoo had some drawbacks, but is certainly worth a visit. The place is huge, with themed areas spread out well. It does follow a logical kind of order - you can work your way through the exhibits and catch the shuttle back down or vice versa. Highlights for me were the Asian Rainforest area and the Formosan area. The... More

The zoo is well planned and fairly easy to get around. Clean Facilities and good food readily available. The panda house was by far the highlight. Inside area to wait turn to view with air. Pandas were very active, so cute and seemed to be enjoying themselves. You did not get to stand in front line for long but could... More

NT60 for admission fee is totally worth to come. There are so many animals in the zoo which I have no time to see all. Just a pity there is no any animal shows, otherwise will be prefect.

Taipei Zoo had a variety of animals to see, spread out over a large area. Many of the enclosures looked quite dated, however, several new spaces were being developed. The area is quite large, with plenty of walking between exhibits so make sure you are wearing suitable footwear. You can get a shuttle within the zoo from one end to... More

Very nice zoo. The Panda exhibit is awesome. We went on a Monday but saw the crowds on Saturday. If possible, don't go on the weekend.

Very large zoo, but well layed out, easy to get around. The zoo is easily accessible by MRT. Entrance fee is very low, only 60 $NT for adults. A lot of the animal exhibits only have one or two animals, even the ones that would normally be in larger groups such as bison, zebra, elephants, otter, etc. The enclosures for... More

Taipei's zoo is a very nice zoo. I think the best time to go would be in March - May/June time frame and maybe after September...otherwise walking around in the heat is just not fun.
