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.

Awesome zoo! Many great exhibits to see... One of the biggest zoos I've been too. It's a little bigger than the San Diego zoo. Great experience and is near the gondola!

I had fun visiting the Taipei Zoo. It was great seeing the Pandas and Koalas. They also had some penguin. The zoo is easily accessible via the metro.

It's nice if u like the non commercial, undeveloped feel. I felt that facilities and animal enclosures could be better maintained though. Animals such as panda are kept in buildings and guests are hurried along which made us feel frazzled. Having been to the Singapore...More

The zoo is huge! Great atmosphere up the hill. That being said it may get tiring to go upslope. U should get the shuttle train upslope first and go down! Lots of animals to see. Take note that some section will be closed on a...More

Not far from Taipei. Easily reachable by subway, taxi/uber, or bus. There is a 7-11 inside as well as a McDonald's. Entry is only NT$60 which is currently less than US$2.

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.
