my purpose of the zoo trip was to visit the Pandas. We able to get early ticket to enter the Panda-rium. For me, the zoo was big and it located nearby with the metro station. The price for entrance was affordable or should say cheap. You can use easy card to access to the zoo w/o queuing for a ticket.

In addition to the low cost entry to this zoo I love it has natural vegetation spread throughout. They have a good variety of local and international animals and the descriptions are in English and Chinese. My favorite part about the zoo is the ongoing poop facts.... VERY engaging and educational, great for children. Tip: You CAN pay with your... More

Nice place to spend a day with your kids. It's better to visit in spring or fall since summer is way too hot to walk in the zoo.

I can spend a whole day here with only few bucks. I love all the animals inside and they have internal tram for lifting people up and down. It's really great experience.

I was impressed with the zoo. It is very easy to get to being the last stop on the metro. Easy to find on the map since it is called the Taipei Zoo station. The zoo is a little hilly and pretty long. Unlike a lot of zoo's where you can walk around in a circular fashion, the Taipei zoo... More

It was a fascinating trip for my family & I.. It's like a bird park and zoo combined all at 1 affordable price. The pandas were the highlight of our trip n a definite must see!

I think our expectation was too high for Taiwan, we had nothing but disappointment from this island, smells bad and people have no respect and no manners and they still hang their clothes outside, zoo was terrible- nothing interesting at all.

We didn't get to see a lot of the exhibits, but the Taipei Zoo was a fun day trip and is great if you are looking for a day to walk around outside of the city. The Formosa exhibits with native species were really interesting (the bears were very active). The lemurs were also really great to see. And of... More
