The zoo is in the process of building several new exhibits and some of the animals are sharing habitats until it's done. The Panda exhibit was nice and not as crowded as we expected. I'm not much of a Zoo goer, but I'd definitely visit again once the new exhibits are finished.

I was surprised how cheap it was to go into Taipei Zoo. It was my first time. I really enjoyed it, even though there were many tourists there and you had to line up to see the Pandas, it was great fun taking my god son there he really enjoyed it too. I would recommend it as it's very cheap... More

The zoo is very big and pretty. However the places where they have the animals are very small. Is sad that they have more space for people to walk than for animals to live. But it is a beautiful place. There's a train inside that will take you from one place to another in the zoo and you can also... More

Pro: cheap entrance ticket, 30 TWD for adult and kids under 12 are free, Panda Cons: too far from one exhibit to another, avoid going in the Summer

Not many zoos have Panda's, so took the opportunity to take my two boys to see them at the zoo. Got there for the opening at 9am, very few people around but a large number of school groups starting to congregate. Jagged early tickets to see the Pandas - essentially got to go straight there, only a dozen or so... More

Get there early to beat the crowds (there will be hordes of them by 11am). The Panda exhibit is the crown jewel, but don't miss out on the other exhibits too. The enclosures are spacious for the animals, but give viewers an opportunity to get reasonably close for optimal viewing. You can visit the entire park in about 3 hours... More

If you have been to the zoo in Singapore, Chicago or Busch Gardens (US), you cannot use this as your baseline expectation or you will be disappointed. The zoo is old, and the facilities are clearly outdated. Not sure about the animal treatment. However, our children (9, 7, 5) had a blast, and do not care about the quality of... More
