  • 已經多次造訪市立動物園了,每次都很興奮,雖然沒有一次全園逛透透,但分區的玩更能發現較多有趣的事,而且孩子比較能調整體能,玩得較盡興。各年齡層皆宜的好去處。 
  • Zoo organized, clean and cheap! With pandas, koalas and other animals that you can't easily see in open places. Entry of about $2.00. Worth the visit!

  • 熊貓、企鵝、無尾熊等明星級動物……難得到動物園走走……算是值回票價……只是動物園園區大……不乘坐導覽車的人……需要有點體力才行……

  • A large open zoo with a huge variety of animals. The zoo is very easy for English speaking people like me who are often just killing some time on a business trip. One downside though, you all know how hot it gets in the summer time and the animals just lay around looking pitiful on these days as if to say "I wasn't built for apocalyptic humidity". The panda exhibit is really cool.
  • It is a nice place for family spending time on weekend. The place is clean and convenience. Recommend using bus to go up on the depth and high in the zoo then walking down to the entrance it will be easier for elder. Don't miss visiting Panda.:)
  • We were lucky enough to go there on a rainy (just a slight drizzle in the morning) day so there was no crowd. We just strolled right into the panda complex and there were maybe 10 other people there. The main panda attraction aside, the zoo also has pretty educational exhibits and signage in both Chinese and some English. Their bird section was particularly good since there were a lot of colorful tropical birds that I don't normally see living in the temperate zone. Even though the zoo was undergoing construction and some sections were closed off, there were enough things to see that it took nearly the whole day for us to go through the zoo. Would definitely want to come back when they finish construction.
  • Good location. Just next to mrt station. Nice environment. Many different kind of animals. Very nice ticket price. Must visit if you good to Taiwan with family or lover.
  • Excellent zoo. Every imaginable animal. Many vending machines or drinks and snacks along the way. Also great sit down place for food (outside picnic tables). I believe 4 eateries to choose from. Definitely do the gondola ride, 5nt shuttle and gondola 120 to 160NT depending where you get on and off.
