We actually learned two tricks from the locals to either take the gondola and get off on the first stop, or to pay NT$5 (or 10) to get in through the front entrance and take the trolley to the end where the bird exhibits were to avoid the crowd and having to walk all uphill. We decided to take the... More

The Taipei Zoo is probably one of the best (and most time consuming) things you can do in Taipei. What's great is that it benefits mountain backdrops and natural settings. Packed with animals from around the world, insects and other curiosities, stayed there 4 hours and feeling like I missed half of everything! Cafes and snacks are available inside the... More

Went there with my 1.5 years old and 3.5 years old, they both love it. We reached there around afternoon thus didn't have much time to explore all the area. The zoo is very clean and spacious. The entrance fee is very cheap and the food stall that selling snacks inside also pretty cheap with enough portion for us to... More

As a big fan of visiting zoos all over the world, this one strikes me as being pretty average. There were a number of exhibits that were just empty, particularly in the Formosa section, however, the temperate zone farthest from the gate was the most interesting area of the zoo. The panda and penguin exhibits were among the best. There... More

If you have little child/children, you can take them to visit this zoo because this zoo has unique animals from different place. This zoo also have Penguin and you can ride the train car inside the zoo if you don't want to walk.

Not a zoo person. Usually go for the sanctuary if I can. This zoo, had something I longed to see, Pandas. It's only a couple American Dollars to enter. It connects from the MRT, so it's easy to get to. Rode the trolley inside the zoo upon arrival. I recommend this because it's a good size zoo. Trolley is a... More
