Opened in 1914, the property was originally owned by a Japanese zoologist.

  • We arrived at 9 am and were able to go around the zoo in 3 hours. Upon entering the zoo, staff will give you tickets to see the pandas at particular times. Ours was 9:10 to 9:19. Don't lose the ticket...  more »
  • This Zoo is interesting for visitors with children. Has interesting attractions, but isn't it wonderful! Nearby is the Maokong Gondola.

  • 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.
