Visited here in 2012 and was shocked at the conditions animals were living in. We were nearly passing out from heat just walking around the zoo and they had poor animals such as bears which looked like they were dying of thirst with no shade or water. Elephants and baby elephant were chained. The baby elephant accidentally stepped on a... More

Spent the day here and though it was amazing however some of the animals did look sickly or unkept especially the aquarium section. Gorillas seemed well cared for, very clean lots of places to get some food and not so far out of town as the other attractions, you can hire bicycles to ride around.

We were not expecting a whole lot before going here - and honestly, it's best not to. Sure, there are many animals to look at. Sadly, most of them seem to be poorly cared for. Many enclosures are tiny, dirty and need keeping. Worst of all, many of the animals seem depressed. There is nothing to stimulate them except for... More

It was alright, not a big zoo but at 150baht it's bargain entertainment. The animals dont look emaciated like some reviews have said, there's a variety of reptiles, cool birds, monkeys , spotted deer, two cute elephants, rhinos and giraffes, zebra, koalas,cute malaysian bears and monkeys. They have lots of drinks and ice cream vendors and a Kfc on site... More

The Dusit Zoo isn't one of the better zoos of the world, but it's not bad. The animals generally seem well cared for and most of the enclosures are not too terrible. The zoo is one of the few green spots in Bangkok. Kids love everything about it, and the zoo can be very crowded on weekends.

I have always been sceptic visiting zoos as I am always a little bit afraid of it beeing a bad experience where the animals and the zoo itself is neglected. Dúsir zoo in Bangkok is exactly that. A terrible zoo in all aspects and the City of Bangkok should be ashamed of it, both the treatment of the animals and... More

This zoo is located in the middle of Bangkok, I've been there several time and it was nice except the animals in the zoo. There is only 1 Lion in the cage and its dry that you can see its bone. I would suggest them that if they could manage this problem it would be better as this is the... More

We went to the zoo at 10am and it was already scorching hot. We liked how the animals aren't that far away. They didn't have that many animals there but it was sufficient, given that I went when it was really hot. The were cafes and little coffee bars almost everywhere and that helps! Oh and they have a 7-eleven... More

Felt more in a park than in a zoo... The facilities are old and not always well kept. Animals seemed tired and equally not in good shape. I only went there to spend time with my family, however is not a great attraction.
