The zoo is in a run-down condition. I feel sorry for the animals in that place. The animals are being neglected.

I feel sorry for most animals in a zoo, but in this case particularly the two tigers, hippo and the orangutan. The zoo really is too small to accommodate these magnificent animals. Also some of the birds are in dirty cages with next to no light. Interesting to take kids, but thew animals should come first. Very cheap entrance. Free... More

It's a zoo which has a long history. There are lots of animals in Hsinchu municipal zoo, for example, tiger, Malaysian sun bear, sika deer, and crocodile. Incredibly, it only charges NT$20 as admission. It's a great place for kids and couples.

Lol. Yep, they had that, as well as a raccoon exhibit! But they did have more exotic animals, as well: gorrillas, bears, a hippo, and some other cool animals. It costs less than a dollar to visit and it is good for an hour or two. I enjoyed it, seriously.

This zoo is a small zoo. It's closed on Mondays but otherwise it's a nice little zoo. Not very big and you can get through it in about an hour. The kids really enjoy watching the animals. Not the most exciting zoo but it's a nice place to go and take the kids when they are bored.

Smaller sized zoo that you can see in an hour or two. I enjoyed the tigers and orangutan. The entry was cheap, under NT$100 (I can't recall the exact price). Good place to take the kids or girlfriend. Worth checking out.

There were a lot of people there so it is popular locally but I'm used to the newer zoos which try to create an open not overly apparent caged animal pen. I was there in Feb and it had a strong odor - may be more offensive in summer heat. I left quickly. The street musicians, magicians and jugglers outside... More

Costs less than £1 to get in. Over 65s, free. Only small and looking a bit run down, but signs of improvements. Mainly small animals, although there is a huge hippo. Look out for the mynah bird (tucked out the way in a small dark cage) who has the most amazing call which sounds like someone knocking at a door.... More
