Smaller zoo inside of Bangkok

If this is one of the best zoo's in Asia, I am definitely not gonna visit others. The enclosures are quite small and not in great state. I found the zoo almost depressing. Best part were the monitor lizards and the squirrels running free in the zoo.

We've been to zoo's all over the world. This is definitely the best one yet. We got to feed hippos, rode a boat in their lake with water monitor lizard all around. The interaction in this zoo is unlike any other, and it's very large.

Watching all those animal in captivity made me really depressed. There are many species in Dusit zoo, but the poor conditions and the sad faces of the animals makes me wander what's the point of those zoos people go. Really bad place to go if you love animals.

The zoo was undergoing some repairs and renovations when we visited, so we couldn't see the penguins. Perhaps check on that first before paying the admission fee. We didn't pay for our own tickets but I don't recall it being expensive. The reptile part is very nice and it's air-conditioned. The're's plenty of food on sale outside the zoo walls... More

The entrance fee was only 150baht each (£3) so very cheap. There were plenty of big animals to see and a lake in the centre with pedlows for a small charge. Where we became concerned was when we saw two of the Bears exhibiting rocking behaviours and seemed mentally disturbed. The zoo in areas seemed worn and not very big... More

Dusit Zoo started as the King's private collection but is now the city zoo for BKK. Note that the entrance fee for foreigners is more than for locals. Its a good basic zoo and obviously they are gradually improving the enclosures, but be warned not all have been modernised and some animals are in old fashioned enclosures. The over walk... More

The entrance fee is 150 baht for foreigners. The animals are well cared for and the enclosures are cool and clean. It's great for children, and they can interact with many of the animals. Go in the morning when it's still cool.

The entrance fee was unexpectedly cheap, just 150baht per foreign visitor. Zoo facilities and outlook were acceptable, but some animals look sad and some shelters are not as furnished. Still worth a visit anyway (if you like visiting zoos), as you can see quite some animals; There are quite alot of local visitors as well. Parts of the zoo were... More

The Dusit Zoo is a nice place, with a lake in the middle and beautiful nature. There is a wide range of animals in the Zoo, but we would like to point out that you get to see the white bengal tiger, the white lions and you can come so close to a giraffe you´ll be able to pet it... More
