  • We went to the Dusit zoo on 10th June 2017. My family (wife and two daughters age 13yrs and 9 yrs started visiting the zoo around 8.30am. We got it to MRT from Phecheburi and got down at Chatuchak par...  more »
  • About half of the area of the main zoo smelled quite bad, and it was the sea lion habitat. They were huddled together in the half-shady part of their enclosure in forty degree heat on a very sunny day...  more »
  • The whole place seemed rather rundown overall, with a lot of old buildings around. Animals are generally kept in captivity and most of them are asleep or lying there hence it might be hard to spot. I'...  more »

  • Great place for families, couple or just yourself. All kinds of animals you would expect plus live acrobatic African show. Inside and outside aces to walk and see animals. Loved feeding the hippo. Trolley train tour around park.
  • It's not one of the best zoo in world but still very good quality. If you compare the price they charge, it's actually very good. You can Lions, Tiger, Penguin, Giraffe, Elephant and other animals. Good for kids.
  • This is the worst zoo I've ever seen. I would rate it nothing if I could. Almost every single animal I saw was in distress and malnourished, pacing back and forth or not even moving. The enclousures are terrible, outdated and not a place for these animals. This place should be shut down! I would not recommend
  • despite the fact that foreigner has to pay more, i enjoyed my time here cos back then we were volunteering for srilankan refugee kids outing day.
  • Some exhibits under construction. Some missing animals. Some exhibits are inhumane, especially the hippopotamus and elephant exhibits. It is overall a well layer out zoo/park and every attractive. Exhibits need updated, cleaned, and made hospitable to the animals and the onlookers.
