  • We must try to be fair. This is a ZOO located in the centre of Bangkok and is a haven of peace. So, some may be critical on his somewhat dilapidated state in some places, the quality of the parks, or other things. It is not less than, with entry to 150 baht for adults and free for children of less than 135 cms, frankly, feel free to go. You will spend 4 to 5 hr if you see pass the time. This isn't Pairi Daiza, of course, but at least it has the merit to exist and allow people to have a good time in a beautiful place.

  • Took my one and a half year old son to the Dusit Zoo. He was very excited to see all the big cats, giraffes, bears, elephants and birds he had previously only seen on babyTV and in books. The zoo is w...  more »

  • Excellent for Asian standard. It wasn't busy and I was able to enjoy the animals by myself. The animals looked all good and you can see they are being taken care of. Some cages could be bigger, though. For the price definitely worth the visit. Food court was excellent and cheap too.
  • It's fine. Saw some geriatric animals. The birds were the most impressive and I liked the Australian exhibit. There is a massive carp in the Asiatic Bear pond that made me question what I was seeing. Keep a sharp eye on your kids. They could fall over a railing into a crocodile pen or approach one of the free-range water monitors.
  • Always good fun to get away inside the city. Major renovation at the moment so some exhibits aren't open and some things are difficult to find. Hopefully the big cats will be moved to a quieter part of the zoo as they're currently along a busy road. Hello Africa Acrobatic Kenya Show was a definite highlight.
  • Because there is zoo and botanical garden at the same place. There is also a swimming pool for children, and a lake. They have giraffe wich I saw first time in live. Also, lots of food and drink vendors.
  • I went with my wife and 2 year old, we had a great time and 90% of the animals looked well treated. Was not busy at all so we got great views and were able to stoll at our own pace. Very cheap to get in - 300bht for the family. Only negatives really were food selection was poor and the elephant was chained at its feet so couldn't move anywhere.
