Lots of animals to see but be prepared to walk as the space is large. I think we rushed through everything and was done in maybe 2.5 hrs.

The zoo open at 09:00 so in summer better go earlier to avoid the sun. Take the 5 yen train from panda area to the other size of the zoo as you can walk back down hill if you want to walk. If you want to buy something to take home I think those rocks are nice gift with nice... More

Loved the Taipei Zoo - money value is unbeatable. Animals live in clean and modern compounds. We loved the butterfly house with all kinds of beautiful butterflies flying around. We even took a picture with a butterfly that decided to land on my head. Great experience

Easy to get to from anywhere in Taipei and very cheap to get in, (60nt?). Huge variety of animals to see, easy to walk, and very clean too. Watch out for the 'free range' spiders out there, though! Take a ride on the Mao Kong gondola afterwards.

A really nice place to visit and also you can reach the gondola from here. -- Hungarian: Érdemesebb innen elmenni a gondolához, illetve ellőtte meglátogatni a pandákat :)

Ok, it was a hot day but all the animals looked hot and tired, and bored. Most of them were lying in the shade or just sitting and staring at something. I'm not a fan of zoo's and this just confirmed it. Agree with someone else who said it's sad to see animals cooped up, much rather see them in... More

We came here for the panda but we were disappointed. The pandas are caged as expected but guests were only allowed to pass by the pandas. We were not even allowed to stay and take just a few photos. The line must keep on going so it felt like we just passed by them. You need to line up again... More

The Taipei Zoo is very foreigner friendly. Anyone who has a general idea of how to travel on the MRT can go enjoy this spot without much hassle at all. The zoo is really interesting as far as zoos go, there are some regional exhibits that have some very unique animals to Taiwan and this should appeal to foreigners' need... More
