After finish temples tour in Bangkok, I took my nephew to visit the zoo. The zoo is aged and a lot of local birds. There's an air-conditioned canteen inside the zoo and the food is ok with reasonable price

You can squirt water on the elephants with giant water cannon to help keep them cool. Its a regular zoo so there are animals in cages. They looked well kept. Its a peaceful place in the centre of the city. Worth a visit if you have small kids.

We can tell the facility there are kind of old. So the cages of animals are dusty and narrow. Animals don't look happy or healthy neither.However the Birds island was funny. We can see many local birds with big mouth.

This is a great zoo. The animals are well cared for. The reptile house was lovely. The snakes etc had shiny skin, well looked after. It is well worth the 100baht to get in. We walked all the way round. The map they give you is a bit confusing. The staff actually looked happy to work there. It is clean,... More

We visited the Zoo on a rainy day since we were in the area and had some time to kill. The animals in the zoo itself are nothing very special except for the white tigers they have. Nevertheless the design of the Zoo and the Zoo itself are an experience, sometimes reminding about past golden times. We really liked it.

Just take time to relax with many creatures. There are many zones to visit and shows. It is crowded on weekend and holiday.

Went there for a family outing, and it was great. Avoid the weekends as it gets busy, and try to visit in the morning. Then you will have the place - and the animals - to yourself!

I'm quite fickle when it comes to zoos and generally prefer zoos that have animals who would otherwise be hunted but give them a lot of space. This was not the case here. Like most public attractions in Thailand they operate the usual rip-off and discriminatory policy of one price for Thais and double or more for foreigners, even if... More

Staying in Dusit

Neighbourhood 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.
