  • Taipei zoo is still the best in the Taiwan and famous in the Asia area. Two Dallas to enter such a excellent zoo is quite valuable. Taipei zoo is not only for fun to kids but a zoo park to adults. Even the foreigners are welcome to visit, there are many Taiwan native animals. If you’d like spend a half day to enjoy walking in an animal forest, Taipei zoo is a good choice.
  • The only zoo I've been to is the Singapore zoo, in comparison, this is a lovely experience. Was here on a Monday, and it felt like the place belonged to us. The zoo is green and the animals have a lot of privacy. Was here in March so the weather was perfect for a stroll. Another reason this place wasn't crowded was probably because the cable car is shut on Mondays. There are no animal shows and I personally like that. Nothing overproduced.
  • This zoo is huge! I spent almost 5 hours inside. With your entrance ticket you get a second one with a specific time to see the great pandas. When crowded it might take a while and you won't see much. As far as my experience tell me, around 4 pm they let the pandas out, and there you can see them as much as you want without time limits.
  • So busy that the whole experience was un-enjoyable! It would take forever to see animals or get food. Left before seeing everything. They should have staggered the entrance of people so you could at least see things in the place!
  • Overall, a good experience with lots of animals to see. Some of the enclosures were really small (like those for the birds :(). The zoo is clean and well-maintained, and easily accessible from the MRT station :) It can be quite a walk so we were thankful that there was a tram that shuttles visitors around key enclosures in the zoo (NT$5 per person), as we were exhausted after walking around the zoo!
