I visited this zoo as a solo trip as I travelled on my own for business.. I had some spare time so I gave it a go. The site is actually quite nice there is much to see.. many rare animals. The only thing is that when I visited, the park was eerily quite and empty, not many guests at... More

We reached the Zoo around 11am on a cloudy morning with the temperatures very tolerable by Bangkok standards. The Zoo (entry fee 150 Bahts per head) is decently laid out and there is a sort of tram car (25 Bahts per head) which takes you all over. We were disappointed because most of the animals appeared to be sleeping/huddled away... More

The zoo is ok. Very cheap. Kids enjoyed it. The food hall is very good. Animals looked well treated. Only problem is be aware of the taxi and tuk tuk mafia outside. They want 200 baht to take you to victory monument bts when in a metered taxi it is about 70 baht. The taxis will also tell you they... More

Slightly better than the Zoo in Chang Mai! 150baht entry for foreigners and cheaper for Thai people, why? Hmmmm. Charge double and give the animals what they need if they must be caged! A lot of rough and rugged caged monkeys clawing to get out of cages, over turned turtle on the back of its shell, unable to turn over.... More

After paying the entrance fee, I expected that a city the size of Bangkok would have a fantastic zoo. My expectations were dashed by a small zoo with small enclosures most of which were not naturalistic. The seal show was less than disappointing. The informational signs about each animal were the best feature.

The BF and I visited Dusit Zoo at the end of December. We decided to walk from Rambuttri. Took a little over an hour. It was nice to walk and see the sights on route. On approach, the entrance to the zoo looked very impressive. Tourists pay more than locals. We paid 150-200THB entrance fee (approx. £4) We received a... More

A great family activity that won't cost you an arm and a leg. Beware the taxi drivers will try to redirect you to more expensive attractions. Great variety of animals. Great park and picnic area. Inside the Zoo you will find a 7/11 and a KFC.

For visitors to Bangkok, Dusit Zoo is not always a site that tops the list, but for a good day, or at least a few hours, the zoo certainly delivers. Dusit Zoo is located very close to the city area of Bangkok, and is not always a place that tourists visit. Why would you when you can go to various... 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.
