I am always ambivalent about visiting zoos. On the one hand I do not think that in this day and age wild animals should be kept in cages and unnatural enclosures for the paying public to gawk at. On the other hand, I acknowledge the educational value of zoos and the fact that some zoos do important conservation work, particularly... More

My experiences visiting the zoo 1. Good place to spend 2-3 hours. 2. The zoo is more like a park. People were sleeping near the lake and eating by it. 3. The animals living in captivity are dirty and depressed. 4. Expect some parts of the zoo to smell like poo.

Oh dear! There has obviously been some money spent here at some point in time and the skywalk experience at least gets you off the minibus lined roadway , but the overall impression of this zoo is that it needs a huge amount of investment. .As a previous contributor noted, the hippo enclosure is dirty , with very little water...

Have visited several times. Since vianmanmek teak mansion was close we visited again. There is dual pricing for foreigners for entrance and to see any of the shows - this is an irritation although it is not as bad as the national parks. Some of the cages and enclosures are small and the chimps looked superannuated. The grounds are spacious... More

Before you read this review, be aware that I'm gonna be honest and I'm not gonna sugarcoated, with that in mind, let's begin. This place is very depressing zoo and it clearly shows that it has some management and budget problems. Some enclosures are in horrible conditions, the hippopotamus did not have sufficient water on their enclosure and it was... More

Family visit to the Dusit Zoo is a treat to all members. The entrance fee of Bht150 for adult and Bht 70 for child are a great value. It is best to enter the zoo through the Ratchavitee Gate. The Sky Walk starts from the giraffe corner will enable visitor to observe the animals from an elevated platform. All the... More

Im not the biggest fan of Zoo's unless they provide conservation. This zoo in my opinion was pretty good considering the reputation of Thailand and its treatment of animals. All of the animals looked great apart from the giraffe enclosure which looked a bit muddy and nothing for the giraffes to do such as lack of trees! Other than that... More

The zoo over all needs some TLC but the price is really cheap so that's maybe why, some of the animals do seem a little sad as they just lay there but over all I spent about 2.5 - 3 hours here and really enjoyed my self a must do for animal lovers who go to bangkok

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.
