The Taipei Zoo is very well thought out. It's spread out on a sloping hill where you can ride a little train to the top ($5 NT), then just take your time walking down through the zoo. The design of the zoo is excellent. It reminded me a little of Animal Kingdom in Disney World where even walls have art... More

Entrance fees is cheap n they have a wide variety of animals. We spent a whole day at the zoo. Bus rides are also very affordable. Best part - panda watching is free! (In Singapore, visitors got to pay extra to watch the pandas from afar)

The Taipei Zoo was one of the more recommended place of interest we saw when planning our family trip there. Indeed it was not a disappointment. The trip started with a casual train ride from Taipei city, which is surprisingly less than 1/2 an hour travel. We were also surprised at how cheap the entrance is comparing with the Singapore...

Most of the animals were out and about, but the park is in need of some maintenance. The recycle poop signs cracked us up at every restroom. The day was overcast and cool, so we did not want to do panoramic things, the zoo was a good fit. The bug section is really run down and was one of our... More

Firstly it only cost about AUD2 to get in to the zoo. It's easy to find and get to and a great place to spend an hour or two. We really only wanted to see the pandas so went there first before spending an hour or two with the other animals. Not the best zoo ever but definitely worth it... More

Great to see pandas in Taiwan as a lot of companies and associations have them as their logos and mascots. Also there are king penguins and all sorts of animals from every continent. The entrance fee is super cheap, over 65 it's free, also accepts student cards. Worth to visit and I suggest you use the inside shuttle train because... More

This is an enormous zoo, with relaxing gardens and a huge range of animals. My main reason for visiting was the giant pandas, which were fantastic, but we ended up staying most of the day, and saw some interesting animals, some of which I'd never seen before, quite close up. We went early on a Monday. The Maoking Gondola doesn't... More

Reasonable price with good variety of animals on display! Enjoyed it even though we only reach there like around 3pm and overshot the time a little when we leave at 5.10pm...

I liked it because it fairly convenient, and can be a half day or full day activity. I've been there twice, but didn't have the chance to visit all the animals, since it is fairly large. I think it's a good place to visit with the family / kids. But during the summer, it can get a bit hot! Bring... More

This is the largest zoo in Asia and is a wonderful place to spend the day. At only 30Nt as an entrance fee it is great value for money. Because of the large size of this zoo there is a train which (for a small fee) can take passengers to the back of the zoo so they may walk through... More
