The largest zoo in Asia, this was original a private zoological garden. The giant panda house, Formosan animal area, koala house and Asian tropical rainforest area are of particular note.

We had a 4-day trip in Taipei and zoo was our last visit before leaving. We took the MRT at Taipei station and it took about 50 mins to get to the zoo. The zoo station is very convenient and just next to the zoo. It was a hot Sunday morning with lot of people already at around 10:30am. With... More

This zoo is not big but we did see many animals in the zoo. If you visit Taipei with kids, perhaps visiting the zoo is quite a good idea. We spent around 2 hours there. In Hong Kong, my kid didn't get a chance to see rhino, giraffes and gorilla. So my boy was excited. You can't compare with Ocean... More

That's right, £1.50! Zoos in the UK cost at least 10x times more and are usually much smaller. It's easy to get to from central Taipei (end of the brown line) and set in a lush green valley. The selection of animals is great, with the panda house and the Asian rainforest section particularly impressing.

The Taipei Zoo is great for kids and adults. The pandas are so nice to see, the price is very cheap and the layout is user friendly.

Kids will be happy to be there. But take note of the close time. Better enter earlier so that you could explore more in the zoo.

Have seen more interesting ZOO parks. The grounds are beautiful. A bit confusing signage. Pandas and koalas made the visit worth it.

There were many animal enclosures that did not have any animals in them. The insectarium and the restaurant above the panda enclosure was the best part of our visit. Restaurant served fairly decent pizzas (did not enjoy the pastas though). We were rushed though the panda enclosure which had long queues and visitors were not allowed to stop and enjoy.... More
