Pretty zoo with wonderful animals like in a picture landscape. Only the queue at the panda visit was disappointing. Didn't manage to see any panda after the long wait.. However overall still fine .

This is one of the cheap zoo to explore. Is good for kids as they can really see various type of animal. The fun one was the panda.

This zoo is huge. It can take you a good day if you are going to go there with your kids and see all the animals. If you want to see the panda, go in with the mindset that you have to queue up. So, avoid school holidays. This place gets a lot of tourists from China as well. Entry... More

Zoo was bigger than I thought and my family spend 5 hours walking the whole grounds despite the some of the major exhibits closed for renovation. Entrance fee was paid using the Easy Card.

I don't see staff within the zoo to guide us where to go. Signage unclear. Not much animals to see except Panda & Koala. Waste of money & time.

Take the MRT to the last stop. Zoo are family friendly, fun and well organized. Avoid going during the weekend or holidays as it gets very crowded.

We were pleasently surprised with the zoo in taipei. While the crampness of taipei city was getting a bit much we found solace amongst the koalas. Each of their exhibits had plenty of information and were modern. I was expecting some lower standards of care for the animals, but they didnt appear to be maltreated at all. And the koalas... More

Parts of the zoo are under construction, some exhibits were closed (panda bears, penguins), directions to different areas not clear or well-marked, very crowded.

Admission is certainly cheap. The zoo is well organised in terms of set out. Queuing up to see the two pandas was a waste of time compared to the beijing zoo pandas. The best zoo i've seen recently is in south korea. Much better than this one and better than the zoo in singapore.

Went to this on the way back from the MaoKong gondola, so went through the South entrance. The best bit was the panda!! they were hilarious! and well worth the visit. Some of the enclosure are a little on the small side but still had a good time.
