Thailand has the best zoos I have ever been to. You are allowed to get up close with the animals. I have been to Safari world in Bangkok and it was well kept up and well organized. Dustin zoo was neither. I expected a lot more from this zoo. The paint was pealing off and You were confused where to... More

We took our 18 month year old. As we staying in the old city it was a short taxi ride. The zoo is not as fancy as say the Singapore zoo, but we did not find it to be poorly maintained or terrible as some other reviewers considered. We hired a kid's buggy to push the daughter around in which... More

Most of the animals the zoo houses aren't found in the several zoos in the Philippines so it was truly enticing for me to explore the zoo slowly and discover each of the species. We enjoyed watching bears being fed with meat, was thrilled with the sight of hippos and flamingos and sloths. The zoo can be enjoyed in a... More

This was hardly the nicest zoo I have ever been to but my husband and I found it to be enjoyable and worth the time. First of all it seems as though many people review zoos just to bash them because they dislike the concept. It has never been clear to me why people like that bother with any zoo... More

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.
