  • This Zoo has 3 big advantages: + up to him just to get and cheap. + Entrance ticket only 150 adult and 70 children. + A small number of visitors. Yes it is quite simple and not very much, but hours on 3 you yourself and your child for sure. Go better in the morning, lunch in the heat all by animals. A small excursion train on territory-though it is worth only 30 baht, but absolutely not necessary, it is better to walk. There is a 7/11. In 10:30 and 12:30 runs the show seals-short program 25 minutes, nothing special. At the end you can caress and be photographed with "cat") it is far not the best zoo in Thailand, but lie close, cheap, and can still entertain. We liked. Want straight to "wow" you in the Safari Park.

  • Zoo has avoid. Unhealthy, animals are rare. Lived them is not cleaned and the infrastructure is in poor condition. We didn't even tour the zoo so it was disappointing. I'm not the type to leave bad comment but believe me I highly recommend. How sad to see animals treated this way. It's a shame for this zoo employees. I don't understand how you let little things do. No respect for animals. I am terribly sad for them. Conclusion No Y NOT GO! . This zoo has to close.

  • Had a fantastic time, spent about 4 1/2 hours there, for 300 bhat or $12 Australian. Feeding the hippopotamus was the highlight of the day, and we have hippos at our zoo at home. The food court was a ...  more »

  • Although this zoo has inproved considerably during the past years, it is not up to modern standards when it comes to animal welfare. Especially the smaller primates and the birds in cages badly need more space. However, one is working constantly at the zoo. A rarher recent improvement is the "skywalk". In many zoos in Thailand "animal shows" in which animals are trained are given. As far as I am aware this does not happen in Dusit Zoo. This is a large plus. But four stars is still too much.
  • 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.
