Nice Zoo

This place is suitable for both kids and adults. There is quite a wide variety of animals on display and is pretty impressive. Nice to walk around the zoo for at least half a day.

I'll say right off the bat that I don't like zoos. I don't like seeing the animals in small spaces, or frankly, the smells. However, the Taipei zoo is better than most. It is smaller than some, but very clean and well kept and they have a train that kids love. Entrance is around 40 NT and te train is... More

The zoo has a bit of everything, and is sufficiently large that it makes for a full day of activities. We went during the Chinese New Year, and it was fairly hot and very crowded. So be warned if you go during holidays. It is easy to get to the zoo by public transport (subway). Once out of the station,... More

The place itself was very well maintained and clean. But the animals looked so sad. The wolf and the hyena were lying on the ground looking dead and probably wishing they were dead. Some of the displays also didnt have animals.

This zoo was just ok. I love animals and always want to support animal sanctuaries or zoos that are preserving the species or providing animals with the most space and natural environment possible. I mixed in feeling because many of the enclosures were very closed in which didn't allow tons of viewing but did provide more privacy for the animal.

We just spent half day in the zoo since it's too hot in April. It's enough for my kids who needed to take nap in the afternoon. But I can say you can definitely spend one whole day inside as it is very big. The environment is comfortable and clean. Remember to bring umbrella, water and even fan in the... More

The zoo had a huge variety of animals and few are endangered. One of the most famous animals to view were the pandas.

Had not initially planned on visiting the zoo. However, due to poor weather, we ended up not going for our excursion out of Taipei. Also, only one of us is more interested in Zoos. But we Both had fun in the end, and I was definitely impressed! One of the better zoos we've visited, with many animals to see and... More

Do not go if it is a public holiday. Easy to get to. Typical Zoo. Be aware that the Panda house is not open to the public every day. Most bathrooms have squat toilets only with the exception of the handicapped/family stall.
