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.

Zoos all always nice with children. So, it worked pretty well for us. Complete zoo with a variety of animals and really affordable prices. You can attach it to the Maokong gondola for a great one-day activity in Taipei.

Its the biggest Zoo in Asia. Its clean, lots of ground to walk. The main attractions are the panda, camel, alpaca, gorilla, penguins etc. There are tramps available at a cost of TWD5. The toilets are clean and accessible. Do go when days are not too hot. There are many cold drinks vending machines around the zoo. The entrance fee... More

Ok~ let me start by typing I am biased....I have been to some of the best and biggest zoos in the world. Taipei Zoo is not one of them. That does not mean it is bad. It is just a bit older and spread out. The zoo is doing lots of remodels but right now....it is just average. The zoo... More

The place is very nice and interesting, but more english information panel would be nice. Some of the animals seem to suffer the hot weather.

We went in combination with the Gondola and wouldnt have gone for the Zoo only. But nicely surprised, lots of re-working going on though...

Very clean and interesting zoo. My kids especially liked the Taiwan native species area and the Panda. Nt$60 is so reasonably priced and you can use your MRT easy card there. Entrance is a few steps from the MRT and there is a shuttle within the zoo as well. Lots of English signage.! Really enjoyed it.

This is a terrific zoo. Admission is very inexpensive and access via mass transit easy and quick from anywhere in Taipei. It reminds me of the San Diego Zoo, lots of animals and many exhibits, my favorite being the Pandas! Short of going on an African Safari, this is the next best thing.

A very impressive and vast zoo spanning over sprawling hilly / mountainous area. Impeccably clean and with so many exhibits and enclosures that it is impossible to visit them all in 1 day. Also this zoo is conveniently located next to the MRT which makes getting there a breeze

$60NTD entry fee ($2 US) - but you get what you pay for. Old enclosures made it difficult to see animals. Everything looked dirty and barely held together. Maps were absolutely useless, and very little english-language signage. A typical asia-pacific zoo, but I was expecting better from Taiwan.
