Very hot in summer, but attractive!

We went there in the hot summer and it's a must to rent baby cars for little kids! It's a great place for city kids to have a good look of real animals!

This is one of the best places that I visited. It can be easily visited by MRT. The park is well maintained and all the information about the animals, birds, insects is displayed various places.

For NT$60 an adult can spend hours walking the zoo and seeing incredible sights. I will not try to win people over to zoological societies because there is so much misinformation on the topic but if you are inclined to enjoy zoos this one is terrific. It is clean, well laid out, well organized and it is apparent that much... More

We went on weekend and it was practically packed (with the locals mainly). In order to take the train ride within the zoo, the waiting time was 1-2 hours. Though the zoo is said to be spacious, the animals are either on your left or right. As the walking pavement in was on the right, naturally everyone was heading to... More

The zoo is very spacious and has a many animals from all over. It also incorporates a botanical garden in its layout so if you are not looking at that amazing array of animals you are getting educated on the plants of the world.! The only drawback from my perspective is the signage which does appear to be a bit... More

Wide variety of animals in the zoo with the pandas being the most popular. Zoo is rather big so be prepared to walk for at least 3-4 hours.

Location wise it's perfect as you can reach Zoo by MRT very conveniently. It's a very well maintained Zoo with star attraction is Giant Pandas. Entry ticket is also decent. One thing I like his place is the natural habitat created for animals and it does not give the cage type feeling. Lot of greenery created inside the animal habitat... More

Well first of all I would rate this Taipei Zoo 5 stars compared to other zoos I've been to but due to the concept of captivation and locking of these sentient creatures I will give it 4 stars. I'm such a hypocrite as I availed this zoo and therefore subscribed to what they are doing or achieving. In any case... More

This zoo is too big and you need a least 4 hours to see the animal. But you can travel it very relax because alot of rest area like chairs, convenient shop is available, and it only cost TWD 60 to enter the zoo, very worth to visit it ! But dont go on winter, 80% of the animal is... More
