Nice little zoo in Taipei
Apr 2021 • Friends
Taipei zoo is a small but nice zoo in Muzha of Taipei. It has pandas, monkiea, birds of all types, and many other animals. It only costs 60 for adults and 30 for students or elders.

I found it great to see so many different animals in Taipei.

Beautiful Zoo
Sep 2020 • Family
Large zoo that also doubles as a botanical garden-- so many gorgeous plants. We've had the best luck going early in the morning on weekdays. It's almost empty except for school groups which makes it easier for my kiddo to run around as he pleases. Remember to bring a mask for indoor enclosures (eg panda house).

Large site with large enclosures .
Mar 2020 • Couples
The zoo was easy to access via rail. It was surprisingly a very large site with amazing large enclosures for the animals. We recommend getting the bus to the top of the zoo & walk back downhill. It’s by small donation as it’s 1.5 to the top where penguins are. . Entry was $60NT incredibly cheap , Same price for an ice cream. I recommend going early as it’s very popular. Definitely worth the visit. Couldn’t believe it had its own McDonalds at the exit/ entry point. Check what exhibits are closed before entry we were disappointed to find a lot weren’t open and not on the board.

Watch out for the animanitronic animals
Feb 2020
I went to the zoo to see the giant pandas - they were not visible when I first tried to visit. Huge loop, sometimes confusing. I enjoyed the bird park, koalas and red panda the most. When I circled back the pandas were thereabout both asleep.

A most excellent zoo
Mar 2020 • Couples
I’ve been to zoos all around the world and fell that this one is one of the best. The animals are all terrific, well cared-for specimens living in nice enclosures. I saw a bunch of animals I’d never seen before. The rain forest exhibit is not to be missed.

Huge!!
Feb 2020 • Solo
I went on a sunday, it wasn't busy and also note that a lot of things are closed on monday!! The zoo is huge!! You can spent hours there! Most animals were pretty active, some you couldn't find because kf bushes which I think is actually good for the animals. Combine this with the maokong gondola!! Zoo closes at 5 or 6, gondola till later so maybe do the zoo first so you'll have enough time for both.

Highly recommended for kids!
Nov 2019
We visited the Taipei Zoo in early Nov 2019. Weather was great so the long distances to walk within the zoo were not a problem for us.

Our kids really enjoyed the attractions within the zoo. I personally think the Taipei Zoo provided a better experience than the Singapore Zoo.

Ticket prices were cheaper than expected. Coupled with excellent fundamentals, the Tapei Zoo is excellent value for money.

As with most popular attractions, best to visit the zoo as early as possible. Definitely a great way to spend 3-5 hours!

Taipei Mucha Zoo and Maokong Peak. Lovely day trip!
Jan 2020 • Friends
The mass transit system MTR is wonderful! It takes you from center of city to Mucha Zoo, no hassle. Taipei city has App of the entire bus and rail systems so travelers are not wasting time. From the zoo, one can take the cable gondola to Maokong peak. Restaurants and tea houses with views are breathtaking! Lovely day trip!

underwhelming
Jan 2020
I visited the zoo at the end of CNY. Big crowd & a bigger disappointment.
Admission is cheap by international standards (60 NT). But the zoo upcharges you for everything - transport up the hill, visit to the education centre, souvenirs and junk food in every section. The zoo has the gall to lecture visitors about carbon dioxide emissions and recycling! I have an idea - let the MRT run your shuttle. At least it would be carbon neutral! I did manage to see both the pandas & the penguins and marvel at the range of wildlife on display. But the hyprocrisy of the presentation and the volume of commercial exploitation left me preplexed? Educating Taiwanese about wildlife could be done much, much better.

it was nice place, though it is advisable to bring fan or water bottle with lots of ice if you will visit in summer as it is a long walk. we enjoyed it!
