Good collection of the animals. As recommended by many people, you can take the cable car to the upper end of the zoo and walk your way down. But walking up hills isn't too bad when you bring a stroller for the young kids.

We were there August 2014. The whole place smelled of poop. It was so overwhelming....totally disgusting. The enclosures were overgrown with weeds. Not very well kept at all. The panda enclosure was ok but over crowded with people...everyone shoving and pushing. Overall the stink was over bearing !!

The Taipei zoo is easily as assessable via their metro line and offers amazingly cheap admission fee (30nt weekend summer promotion; 60nt for regular admission) for the selections of animals you can see. The zoo is quite big but there is a tram that takes people to the other end of the zoo for an additional fee of 5nt. I... More

This zoo is my must-go place in Taipei. I have been there for thtee times and am still loving it. Very educational. It has a wide variety of animals, from insects to birds, from African animals to Australian and even arctic animals. They are still expanding the zoo for more! They have introductions for each species, where some of them... More

The zoo is very huge with a large collection of animals. The entrance fee is very affordable at NT30 during weekdays. slightly more during weekends. the major highlight of... More

The zoo is spacious probably due to its location at the outskirt of Taipei city. No worry of the transportation as you can take Metro Taipei to the Taipei Zoo Station. Walking distance from the exit to the entrance of the zoo. You can rent stroller if your toddler is tired of walking uphill. There is a McDonald fastfood near... More

They have everything in this zoo - Lions, tigers, (even a few Polar Bears, I believe - but I might be wrong). There are the pandas as well, along with more pedestrian zoo fixtures such as elephants, hippos, giraffes, etc. The animals are grouped in large areas that correspond roughly to the animals' habitats and climate: Jungle, rainforest, Africa, polar...

I love the misted walkways that cooled us off in the summer heat. The soft water droplets evaporated, leaving us refreshed and serene!

This zoo is 100 years old. They did a very good job there, it's right off the MRT (metro) station, and is very accessible. A lot to see. They have a huge variety of animals there, and the animals don't seem to suffer. They have some big nice tropical jungles there

+ve - very affordable entrance fees compared to some of the more established in Asia - easily assessible, near the Taipei metro - next to Mao Kong, which is another place to visit if your zoo trip ends early -ve - some of the animal exhibits are under renovation - frequency of tram ride not as fast
