Near hotel and easy to get to . OK to walk around. But this zoo is not updated like most modern zoos and many animals just were not there except on signs.

Not that many animals to look at and thoose who live there where sleeping all the time. Eberything you want to do inaide the park cost extra on top of the entry fee. And thoose prices are different for thai people and foreigneirs. More than double cost if you are not born in thailand. Would never recomend anyone to visit!

Not a very busy destination even on Sunday. Main attraction is koala bear just next to the entrance. Animals are generally healthy and active but quite smelly in certain sections of the zoo. Ticket is 150 baht for adult and 70 baht for child.

Make no mistake. I love zoos, especially the aviaries. I've been to the Dusit Zoo many times over the years and have had plenty of fun walking through the vast grounds. However, there's just a few things that bother me. I don't like to see elephants in chains. They're put there so people can feed them and have a closer... More

While visiting our son and family, he suggested we visit the zoo. I told him of the reviews I had read and he was surprised to hear of the negative comments. We went on a Sunday morning. There was no charge for the young children. The layout is as good and even better than some zoos I have visited in... More

We went to this zoo because I wanted to see some animals native to their country. To my surprise, the animal are kept in appalling conditions. They look very sad. I was even more shocked when I seen a hippo that had about 30cms of water in a puddle about 1m x 1m, an Australian salt water crocodile with no... More

The price has since gone up. I paid 150 baht in January 2015 which is the price for foreigners. The price for locals is listed at 70 baht. The are is too small and too enclosed especially for the giraffes which circled round and around for the 30-40 minutes I spent observing them and attempting to take pictures.

If I could give this zoo a minus rating I would. It's disgusting, the animals look malnourished and drugged. They barely moved and all looked so depressed. The water enclosures looked dirty and poorly maintained. It's just a generally depressing place and should be closed down.

I don't think I have ever been to a zoo and left feeling so depressed. Every single animal looked sad, some cages had nothing in them and I'm sure there was a dead/dying hippo there to. Avoid if you can, they really need to upgrade it! The only enclosure that I liked was the turtle one.
