Very good zoo with pandas to see. Serves it's purpose. I recommend you take the tram up and walk down as the elevation is steep.

The zoo is pretty big, it's very spread out so there are alot of walking, purposely went there to see the pandas and for the gondola ride but the gondola ride was closed for renovation so it was a big disappointment. Overall it's like a typical zoo. I would visit if you have the time or if you are already... More

It seemed like the animals did not have enough Space in this park. The pandas were the main reason we went here.

As far as animals going, there's a HUGE range. The zoo is spread over such a huge area that it's physically draining to walk around. Some animals are hard to spot and they sleep a lot but thats not their fault. Wear sun cream and wear sensible shoes : that's my advice

This place is better for families. It's well located as it's just a stone's throw away from the train station. My only aim for coming there is to see the panda. The panda area has a dedicated facility and you have to fall in line in order to get your chance to see the panda in an enclosed glass space.... More

Can be crowded at holiday time, but diverse range of animals and good facilities. Better at cooler times of year

Expect to walk far so plan accordingly with good shoes, refreshments etc. There are many areas that are spread far apart but it is signed well and the map is provided. To see the pandas you will be given a slot, usually just after when you arrive and it's busy inside so if you've seen them before then you might... More

This is one of the largest zoos in Asia and the area is spread over a large plot of land on a hill. Would suggest taking the Maokong Gondola up to Maokong station first and spend some time there before taking the cable car back down to the Taipei Zoo South Station. That way you will be walking down from... More

Wow, this place is cheap for the family. With the Metro running to the gates nearly its at the end of the line, so you really can't get lost. The Zoo has it all really, but don't miss the Panda's. Tips would only be prepared with good footwear, lots of water and sun screen in the summer, its a big... More
