Great zoo for families

The panda house is very orderly (unlike Beijing). We went first thing. The cafe in the panda house had roaches. We will stick to the convenience stores in the park next time.

Walking around Taipei Zoo, one would notice that Taiwan has really taken a lot of efforts making this facility top of its game. Albeit, it can use more animals, but the animals appeared well-taken cared of.

This zoo is large and the entrance fee is very cheap, only $60NTD. But I found there was something lacking. There wasn't that many people there when I went, I think because a storm was forecast in the afternoon. Be prepared to do lots of walking as the animal enclosures are spread over a very large area and some enclosures... More

Large compound, cheap ticket prices of NT60 per adult. Was very rainy due to the impending typhoon Soudelor and dropped by since we couldn't take the Maokong Gondola. One of the two pandas was asleep unfortunately. This zoo has some interesting creatures like camels. Left after a short while as it was too cumbersome to walk around in the rain.

The Taipei Zoo is definitely worth the visit if you're spending any length of time in Taipei. There are animals here, such as pandas and pangolins, which are hard to find at most other zoos. Be warned though, unless you go midweek, there WILL be a line up to see the pandas. In terms of walkability, this is indeed a... More

A great zoo, well organised. Make sure you check the weather before you go because if you run into a torrential downpour, your day would be ruined. Suggestion: Take the MRT and follow the sings to the gondola. Take the gondola to the first stop, and from there take the shuttle to the zoo.

Children love zoo, but this zoo is rather too big for young children to walk around and the trams are a far walk to get to. The exhibits are quite far away from each other. Other than the pandas, I am not impressed.

Taipei Zoo is a very good zoo for what it offers, however I have seen better. The staff are occasionally around the park. The space around the animals is good and there is a café available. The crowds around the pandas are extreme!
