I just loved that place. I traveled with my family and they liked it most. So many Animals & Birds and very open places. You can walk and take rest. It is very nice place to visit.

A cheaper choice among bangkok city to visit. Our kids were enjoyed. Specially with the dolphin show. We found the entrance ticket also reasonable and everyone can afford. We’ve been this place couple of times in different years. Recommend place. Thanks

When wandering around the Dusit Palace grounds, you'd
almost forget you're still in a Southeast-Asian city.
The Renaissance-style buildings and leafy gardens
wouldn't be out of place in an European capital, and
the serenity here is in stark contrast with the
chaotic city life outside of its complex walls. Dusit

Dusit zoo is completely closed and will be bundled as a part of Dusit palace. Still you can visit other government operated zoo or private zoo. There are many of them across the country.
