This zoo is set on the mountain side so expect some sweat during the summer months. However the animal enclosures are all very well designed to blend in with the nature. The whole experience is very nice and well worth a visit.

The Taipei Zoo is clean, well kept, and the animals seem to be well taken care of. The admission fee is far below what you would expect for such a zoo. Food selection at the zoo is pretty poor. Either bring your own or wait to eat until you finish your zoo journey.

Cheap to enter and easy to get to (via the Metro) however the 'adventure' ends there. I was disappointed with the exhibits and a lot of animals appeared to be missing or looking half dead. Mind you, it is currently Summer and the humidity is draining. The animals were defiantly feeling this. The panda looked stressed and kept staring at... More

Great place to visit with lots of animals to see, not to mention one of the few zoos that host panda bears! The admission fee is unbelievably cheap compared to zoos in the US, free to Senior citizens and kids 12 and under, regular admission 2 US dollars!! And just like anywhere in Taiwan, the zoo is loaded with food... More

This zoo is larger than what I expect. I would rate it as one of the best. The animals are kept in places which are quite spacious. You can find zoo keepers seriously doing their jobs in there. You can even find animals from Africa and Madagascar. Although I saw polar animals in the map I did not go there... More

I find this a normal zoo. Nothing much to see and the Panda has it's own show time so you really have to make sure you come in on time to see the Panda. I also noticed other animals to be very inactive, probably since they are enclosed and within a limited space, unlike Singapore Zoo.

Checking out Panda's is just a cool thing to do. I mean, how many times can you get to do that?? The zoo itself is nice as well with allot to see. It can get hot in the summer, so be prepared. But again- just the panda view is enough to make the trip and to even deal with the... More

We had a 17 hour layover in Taiwan so thought we would go to the zoo. Managed to find our way from the airport to the main station and out to the zoo - not too hard to work out. It was 35 degrees but intensely humid so we ended up buying umbrellas from the myriad of street sellers outside... More
