I was pleasantly surprised by Dusit Zoo. My 6 year old daughter is a zoo fanatic and I thought Dusit might disappoint. On the contrary. She loved many of the attractions & fell in love with the giraffe's. We went on a fairly cool, for Thailand, January afternoon. I might stay away on a summer day as there is not... More

The last time I came to this zoo was nearly 20 years ago as a field trip with my school. Went there with my girlfriend because she had never been here before. I was very disappointed with the conditions that the animals are in, the tigers were extremely skinny and you can see their ribs. There are not a lot... More

You will enjoy this place if you will visit it with small children, as there a lot of activites oriented for underages. As Bangkok weather in general is very hot and humid, not so pleasant to walk a lot. Please, has a lot of services for food and drinks, as well as 7-11 shop, ATM s etc

We visited during a rainy but rather hot day, to get out of the beaten tourist track of monuments and temples. At the zoo you will find mostly locals (we saw only another 4 tourists). Entrance fee for tourists is 150 Thb.The zoo itself is a bit run down, although I was expecting even worse. Animals look OK, which is... More

We were told by a cab driver it was closed on Sundays, WRONG its not closed on Sundays so don't let that deter you .. they close at 5pm its pretty cool they allow you to feed the animals if you get there at certain time, feeding the giraffes was cool.

I enjoyed my visit at Dusit Zoo this week very much. I came in the morning and was surprised to be one of only a few people in the oo for the first hour and a half. But it was nice. I could watch lots of animals and take lots of nice pictures. I especially liked to watch the giraffes... More

Visited the Hippo ensure, snakes ( which were usually hidden in their enclosures ) Bengal Tigers, bears and alligators etc. It was a very hot and humid day, luckily there is a 7/11 onsite and many food and drink outlets....

At the hotel we called for a taxi, the taxi driver said that it will cost 150-200 Bhat to get to the Zoo. We agreed... More

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.
