The zoo does not have many animals. But the park is very very big. There was a elephant show, animals, boats for rent. Our children had the best day in thailand so far.

This was just awful. The animals are not taken care of at all, everything is too small for them and everything looks just terrible. Half of the cages are broken and under construction. So alot of the animals are not even there. The zoo it self looks like they diden't renovate it in yeaaaars. The only highlight was that you... More

I paid around 100+ baht for entry. With that kind of price, my expectations was set really low and cannot be compared to zoos like the one in Singapore or San Diego. The zoo itself is huge! However, I felt that more exotic animals could be on display. The animal exhibits are far apart from each other, so do take... More

I didn't know what to expect as I have never been to a zoo in Asia and I must admit I was very impressed. Me and my partner spent 5 hours wondering around the zoo. For 150 baht for an (tourist) adult I think this is an excellent price. You can take your own food into the park, we did... More

Had a fantastic time, spent about 4 1/2 hours there, for 300 bhat or $12 Australian. Feeding the hippopotamus was the highlight of the day, and we have hippos at our zoo at home. The food court was a bit risky looking, but the 7/11 had cheap food and drinks so we bought our food there. Glad we read positive... More

I do have a conflict of interest when I visit zoo. Imprisonment versus first hand education for children. Anyway, that's not what this review is about. After seeing horrible zoos in other countries, I finally came across a well maintained zoo with a pleasant environment right in the middle of a city. I would recommend this attraction especially for families... More

Great place to see Asian wildlife. Very good enclosures with lots of opportunity to see the animals. Great way to spend a couple of hours. Great for family activity. Go in the morning

We went to this zoo having read the reviews on here and didn't have very high expectations! But we had a few hours to fill and thought we'd go to decide for ourselves and were very pleasantly surprised! Apart from being a bit dated (it is Thailand!) and the fact that as a foreigner you have to pay 50thb more... More

the zoo is in a nice garden&park area, Dusit park, family-friendly with all the paraphernalia a Thai day out requires I particularly liked the reptile area and most of all: the big hornbills! they are on bird island.

Staying in Dusit

Neighborhood Profile
Dusit
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 is one of Bangkok's oldest districts, and while the rest of Bangkok is modernising at a rapid pace, Dusit seems to have stood the test of time. Come here to find family businesses in traditional shophouses, small-scale local markets and streets unfazed by modern city life.
