We only planned a very quick stop to the zoo but were so pleased that we were able to feed the hippos, giraffe and elephant... Something we would never be able to do at home. Was not happy that to see the pandas at the very far end of the zoo, that there was another fee. This should have neen... More

I went along December 2016 I was only going to see the pandas as it would probably the only time in my life I would get to see a panda.I would sooner them be in the wild but as we know that's not possible. So when I got there and seeing the ticket options I went for the full price... More

Im not that into zoo's but I liked this one compared to crapy attitude we have to animals back at home in Ljubljana. IMO big cages fkr animal, alot of them are roaming free and they have a nice aquarium. Animals should be free but I guess this is a nice zoo to see.

The installations are quite poor and the most of the stuff was not kind. They still use elephants for riding which is very sad and painful for the animal. We felt bad after the visit. It's 1 milion times better to visit an elephants retirement park where they don't ride the animals.

We had a good day at the zoo. The tram system was a bit frustrating, as we had to purchase 2 tickets, so we could finish our day at the water park area. And I wish they would stop having the elephant rides.

The zoo is easy to reach by taxi or scooter. Entry price is very reasonable. It seems that most animals are treated well and kept in relatively well-maintained enclosures. The zoo is set on the lower slopes of Doi Suthep, which makes for a very beautiful setting. There is a good selection of animals and you can buy veggies to... More

Okay for a day out but we were disappointed that the panda display was closed. The animals seem to be well looked after but the condition of their cages leaves a lot to be desired. Unfortunately they are still the old form of containment rather than the wide open spaces of most more modern zoos. The shuttle buses at 30... More

Chiang Mai Zoo is a great place to take family and friends. We have always enjoyed our time there--there is such a great variety of things to see and do, from the Aquarium to the Pandas to riding the trams!!

The most unusual feature of this zoo is that it is built on a really big area with plenty of distance between clusters of attractions /exhibits and it has proper roads so you can take you care in and drive from one to the next. It becomes a drive rack, walk and repeat kind of experience. Exhibits are in generally... More
