  • We visit the Zoo everywhere, if it has one. Basically, this is very nice, but they left more space for the landscape, sidewalks, etc. as for the animals themselves. In our opinion these have far too little space for Zoo conditions. It had free ongoing Carvalho and crocodiles, which was very impressive. However, because there are flight animals, it was sometimes hard to take a picture. As we went over the sidewalk, one is ran constantly before us, even though we close came him not to. Very funny.

  • We can tell the facility there are kind of old. So the cages of animals are dusty and narrow. Animals don't look happy or healthy neither.However the Birds island was funny. We can see many local bird...  read more »
  • When you enter the main gate, it will give you a feeling full of excitement to explore the zoo. Unfortunately, this excitement only happen at the early stage of your exploration. After that, you will see a very inactive animals. A lion that looks very sick, two tigers in a small space and looks very unhealthy, low amount of water for two hippos to enjoy their hobby, many empty cages, a deer full of sorrow(oh dear, pity you) and many more that will make you feel sad when you are looking to the animal's eye.
  • I'm still undecided about my visit. The zoo is a nice place to spend a day or an afternoon. Lots of animals, and informative descriptions. Several pleasant areas to stroll around, including a large lake with paddle boats. Numerous options for cold/hot food and drinks. However, almost all of the animals look filthy, unhealthy (mentally and physically), and the "exhibits" (cages) are small, and apparently unappealing to the animals (when does a "sane" elephant unceasingly swing its head back and forth?). Worse yet, the cages were frequently filled with excrement and other filth. For example, the Flamingo exhibit was so full of excrement the smell made it absolutely unbearable to view. All in all, a somewhat depressing day...
  • If you avoid the weekends, the Dusit Zoo is normally a heaven of peace in a very busy city. Most animals live in better conditions than those in other Asian zoos. There is a good food court and plenty of other places to take a rest.
  • Awesome place to chill when in Bangkok. Im not a big fan of zoo's but this one I like. The place is huge and lots of activities can be done in the area. Right across the zoo is the Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall which you can visit too.
  • This is an awesome zoo. It's a big area filled with giant lakes and rivers. They have tons of paddle boats you can rent and explore the park from the middle. There are also lots of picnic areas and statues that you can take pictures by. They also have a bunch of cool animals at the zoo, too. It's a really awesome zoo.
