  • 性價比非常高, 只收60元台幣, 值得去親親動物。 動物園內有幾種種罕有的動物, 接近絕種的野生非洲驢仔, 銀背黑猩猩。 園內分成多個不同區域, 每一種動物都有仔細說明, 讓遊客容易理解, 值得花上一個下午去親親動物。 
  • It's convenient to go to, and the entrance fee is really cheap. For the price, I didn't expect to have enjoyed myself (as many reviewers here say skip it if you don't have kids) but I totally did. I o...  more »
  • 剛好遇到動物園遷園30週年的活動,自己帶些點心進園,先坐遊園車到最上端的企鵝館,然後再往出口方向逛,這樣比較輕鬆。這裡真的很適合帶小朋友來。

  • 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.
