Loved this zoo. Had a great time with my 21 month old .. She walked n tried to see almost all the animals. Many fence were at her eye level. Many areas to hide into to get AC or shade. Was really humid so bring an umbrella, sunscreen or hat. Panda bear line was long do expect lines.

Its the last stop on the Wenhu line, which is quite a long train trip from where we were staying in Ximen. The snakes weren't real. There are two pandas but they are behind glass in tiny enclosures and just look really sad.

The zoo is big but does not have as many animals as expected. The design is cute, nice place for children. Souvenir shops are nice to visit. Only panda and penguin catch my interest. There are Koala but they are sleeping so not much to see.

First of all, the entry fee into the zoo is a mere $60tdw per adult/$30twd for child which is really affordable compared a lot of other zoos we've been to around the world. Very easy to access from Taipei Zoo MRT (exit takes you directly there) or by the many buses which pass through and stop right in front. The... More

This is a great zoo with a ton of things to see and do. Price is dirt cheap, almost a crime how little you pay to get in. (~3 USD per adult, kids free). Food and drinks available and easy with a stroller.

I went with my family and it was not as bad as we thought. There were quite plenty of different animals indeed. A nice place for family with children.

If nothing else go to see the Pandas, check you entry ticket to see your allotted time. The entrance fee is only 60 Taiwan Dollars, which is outrageously cheap. If you can get the Gondola to the top of the zoo and walk down if its hot as that makes life a lot easier. There is a reasonable selection of... More

The kids loved it. The panda attraction was fantastic as it was the first time they saw a live panda. Be prepared to walk a lot, carry an umbrella of a hat. It was too hot!!
