The largest zoo in Asia, this was original a private zoological garden. The giant panda house, Formosan animal area, koala house and Asian tropical rainforest area are of particular note.

It's a really big zoo but sadly, there are few animals to see. It would be better if they also add more food choices, more snack bars, more options of how to go around the zoo (aside from the shuttle train), and more places to...More

Don't waste your time. Not sure what's all the hype about this zoo. Most attractions there's only one animal inside and if it's sleeping or hiding then you get to see nothing except grass, rocks and water.

I would not recommend this. it makes more sense to visit zoo first and take a break at maokong. most likely you'll spend at least half day in zoo. Then you take gondola up to Maokong, find a nice tea house and enjoy sunset... More

hi! just take the MRT. Much cheaper and stops just a few 100 meters from the zoo. I took the Gondola on the way back just for fun otherwise you can certainly take the MRT back too.
