After 3pm there is no animals in most of the cages, all hidden (closed) in the 'back'. You can find lots of trash on the paths.

Not the best zoo and it seems like the animals are highly drugged. The lions for example, hadn't moved (both times) I went there. The tigers move around a bit more. The monkeys are probably the most active animals. I liked the reptile section though - lots of snakes and lizards. Worth visiting but not a revisit...but I went with... More

The Dusit Zoo in Bangkok is probably the best it can be with the limited budget spent. The zoo itself had minimal infrastructure improvement by raising part of the walkway that enable visitors to view the animal from a higher viewpoint. Otherwise the zoo had basically maintain their surrounding and structures suitable to receive mass visitors during the weekend and... More

Animals behind fences in small boxes like zoos in Europe 40 years ago. Not well maintained ! I not will go there again. Not nice to see the animals in a dirty small old place

Visit This Place So Often And My Favourite Part is Snake's Place. All Around The Zoo, Not So Much Animal To See. It iS However Enjoyable To Walk Around. Zoo is Very Well Cleaned And There Are Also Some Food Court And Restaurant Around If You Feel Hungry. Tickets For Thais And Foreigner Is Different Price :)

Not the best zoo. But seen a lot worse. They make an effort and are limited in space. Worth an afternoon. Best zoos in or around national parks

We didn't get a chance to see the elephants when we were in Chiang Mai so we decided to visit this zoo when we came to Bangkok. We didn't have much expectations since most of the reviews here are below average. We paid 150 bhat each to get it. The zoo itself is pretty clean and well kept. It is... More

The worst zoo I've ever visited. Poor animal welfare, genuinely distressing experience. Hopefully this place will close soon.

Where do I start! This zoo seems to be more focused on food stalls, arcades, and cheap attractions than the welfare of the animals. Many of the animals looked very sick and to name just a few: the cows, and horses (covered in scabs), the ostrich (see my title), and numerous other animals looked terrible! There is a black bear...
