I didn’t have expectations when coming to this zoo for reason in the past I’ve been to the zoos in Chiang Mai, Korat and Khon Kaen. Those other zoos in Thailand all looked to be under maintenance with many animals missing and some that were there seemed to be under poor conditions to the point I worried how well the... More

There was some reconstruction going on, so couldn't see some of the animals. Arriving from Africa, it was a bit disappointing to see the state of the animals. I'd suggest to skip the Dinosaur exhibition & the Monster animal exhibition, it's like a cheap theme park. One can take a tram around the zoo, which can be very helpful on... More

Relitively cheap to get in but once your in there isnt a great deal to do. Yeah you can see leopards and monkeys but the poor things are caged away so it just want for me... you can feed goats and watch the very average seal show... all in all.. average! But worth it I guess for families.

We spent a good majority of our day exploring the Dusit Zoo. It was very easy to get to, we could take a public bus from our guesthouse or a tuk tuk or taxi, which we opted to do. It was quite expansive with many exhibits. The elephant exhibit was under construction during our visit but this did not hinder... More

In terms of zoo, I guess you can hardly find anything worst. Not worth visiting. The only interesting part is the snake vivarium.

In every foreign country we visit, we visit the local zoo and learn more about their wildlife and culture. In Bangkok, The Dusit Zoo has beautiful animals as well as incredible gardens, trees and the largest monitor lizards roaming free. There are bikes and strollers to rent, as well as water paddle boats. The Seal Show was fantastic. Unfortunately, the... More

The animals cages are mostly well kept and the animals seem happy. There's lots of animal interactions to do such as feeding hippos and giraffes. Plenty of exhibits to keep you interested and the ticket is only £3 so it's well worth the visit
