After reading the poor reviews we were a bit hesitant to head here but decided to come anyway as it was the easiest zoo to drive to. As a tourist I found a few things they did made no sense whatsoever and many things were just in Thai, and staff had very poor English. Overall the zoo is actually quite... More

delayed in bangkok for a few days by the floods we needed to fill in some time. The guidebook had an uninspiring brief mention of the zoo and the actual zoo garden animal enclosure area looked quite small but lots of good Asian animals, including a good display of the iconic hornbill birds, meant that after almost 3 hours we...

We visited the Dusit Zoo and did not have high expectations, but after walking around for a while, we slowly changed our minds. The zoo is easy to get to, either via taxi or city bus, and the entrance fee as of 31 December 2016 was 150 Thai baht for adults and 50 Thai baht for children (foreigner prices). The... More

Entry fee 150THB. Be aware, the zoo is not in optimal conditions, yes, you can see many animals, you can walk around, but it needs some maintenance. This place is not targeting tourists, is more for locals. They have a food court, prices are cheaper compare to regular touristic areas in Bangkok. For this price it worth the visit.

This is a Zoo. It has animals. The animals are alive (most of Them at least)... We even saw one animal move... zoo closes at 5pm (1700), so they start to move the animals away at 4... no feeding shows available. We survived 90 minutes of sheer boredom...

Fairly centrally located the Zoo is in wonderful well kept surroundings near the palace. It isn't a huge zoo and we managed to see everything in a couple of hours. There is a little train to take you around so there isn't too much walking to do in the heat, but in saying that we walked most of it anyway,... More

Decided to visit the Dust Zoo with our young son (2 years old). We arrived there at about 9am (Zoo opens at 8am). Feeling hungry, we asked where can we buy food. No food is for sale anywhere until 10:30 or 11am, sports they open the park and there is nothing for sale. No staff around. Very underfunded, many exhibits... More

This is a lovely place and could be better if not for the fact that some of the animals look in very poor condition. The lions looked horrible and some of the crocodile and alligator pens did not have any water in them. Even some of the turtles looked poorly kept. Still a nice walk and for the price a... More

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.
