Like so much of the infrastructure in this city, the high speed rail worked flawlessly to take us to the zoo and the route passes through some interesting parts of the city you might not otherwise see.
I reside in a city that arguably has the world's best zoo (no, not Congress in Washington, DC) but this one was still worth a visit. In San Diego's zoo the pandas are shy and distant and spend much of their time eating bamboo leaves. In Taipei the huge structure for the pandas allow visitors to get up close to the windows and view the animals directly and to take up close pictures. The pandas on the day we visited were anything but shy!
The rest of the zoo was very well designed with modern natural settings for the animals to roam around in. There were also attractive small lakes and gardens quite peaceful and serene.
Note: the day we visited had temperatures that were setting records for the highest temperatures every recorded in the city ever. There were not many areas to escape the heat so if you're going during a heat wave bring a hat and sunscreen and lots of water.
