Knowing the way animals are sometimes treated in Thailand, I didn't have high hopes for Dusit. But it turned out to be a nice little zoo, with lots of parkland and quite a variety of reptile, mammals and birds in decent sized enclosures. They are also doing a lot of renovating and adding new attractions, so if you've been here... More

The zoo is located a little outside of central Bangkok right next to the King's residence. We walked from the victory monument sky train stop (which is the closest) and it took roughly 40 mins. It is usually 150 baht to go into the zoo, but as it was the queen's birthday entrance was free! There is a nice mix... More

Ill share the bad to begin with. When you are in Bangkok walking around in an area with all concrete that is not fully shaded everywhere it can feel very very hot. So be careful in the middle of the day. There is plenty here that will keep a child entertained and fascinated throughout the day. There is an especially... More

I had a lovely time in this zoo! I was doubtful to go because of the bad comments on tripadvisor but I really don't understand all the fuzz about it. Every animal lived in a a big and well maintained area (exactly the same as in my country, Belgium). Not one animal looked neglected. We could even feed the hippo's... More

I honestly regret going, the conditions the animals are kept in will make even ice- hearted people depressed. Let me be clear, I am not normally against zoos, I've been to many Australian zoos All the animals were in spaces way too small. The giraffes lived in what looked like someones backyard minus the grass, just dirt. The large cats... More

Went to see dusit zoo on our second day in bangkok. It was quite a distance from the city centre but it's worth the visit. Took the taxi to get there from Phu Lamphong station. It was good to visit on weekdays cos less busy and you enjoy the zoo without having to bear loud noises from kids and those... More

So we were looking for a place to spend a couple of hours in the morning while in Bangkok. We ended up here. 150 baht for adult foreigners and 70 baht for child foreigners. That's the admission price. Once you get in there are little charges for this and that. 10 baht for a dinosaur exhibit. 10 baht to see... More

This place could actually be so much better. Ok, so it's very pretty, or most of it is. It would be much prettier if there weren't so much construction going on. The construction was quite off putting, and restricts access to some animals. The zoo is not too bad in terms of the animals on show, they have a number... More
