The zoo tickets are inexpensive. The little train takes you around to different areas of the zoo and is frequent. The exhibits are okay and good enough for the animals. I liked the orangutan the best. He was drinking water from a running faucet and playing in the water, and when the keeper turned off the source, he was trying to turn it back on. It was cute. Taipei is very hot and humid in the summer time, so drink plenty of water. You can take a bus all the way back to Taipei Main Station.

We came here to see the baby panda. Due to the heat, they were all indoors in the panda house. The pandas are very popular, so entry is timed (you receive a ticket when you enter the zoo) and they’re very efficient about pushing people along, but the panda house was still extremely crowded with panda fanatics trying to take pictures.
Other than the pandas, we didn’t see much in the zoo, because it was extremely hot. Many of the animals were hiding in the shade, and it wasn’t that pleasant for the humans walking around either. Bring a hat, sunglasses, and water.

Unfortunately very hot and humid day so did not spend too much time at the zoo, but wanted to see the Pandas, so cute and there were no line ups to get inside!!! Disliked the fact that some of the animals do not have enough space to roam.

For some reason, I always compare animal attractions back to the San Diego Zoo and Sea World. The Taipei Zoo was designed by the same people that designed the San Diego Zoo and it is a great family excursion. The animals seem to have enough space to roam around and the displays all seem respectful of the animals so you don't have to feel sorry for them. Of course, Giant Pandas are the main attraction, but all sorts of great distractions and easy to spend a day here.
