Chiang Mai Zoo reviews
I’m generally not for Zoos but saw positive reviews and have to say it was a pleasant surprise to see sizeable habitats esp for the bigger animals. The use of moats rather than cages made viewing...

Horrible animal treatment. Go and see wildlife living their best life in the natural world instead or at a legitimate sanctuary

I really like this zoo There are only cute and beautiful animals, arranged very nicely. Like to go with friends often, very impressed.

My kids would love to be there every now and then. You can definitely get new experiences every time. It's our first time to meet flamingo chicks this close and they're so adorable!! Just can't get it why nobody is lining for this. Maybe others just didn't notice these cute babies. And the otters are energetic. One of them even gave us a wink.
A very well structured zoo with generous enclosures for the animals. Note that you need to be in good shape, otherwise I'd recommend using the tour cars or the rental golf carts - the zoo is very large and is built on a mountain slope. Luckily you can buy the tour tickets and hop on the cars throughout the zoo.
The aquarium is extra 200baht. Panda's were sleeping so exhibit was closed (also extra). Take the bus tour or else you'll die climbing the hills (150pp). Food stands outside zoo are sketchy and limited. Eat before you come. Inside there is a restaurant past the golf carts that is ok. 50B for fried rice and pork. 20B for a pop. There is a cool milk bar about 200m East of the zoo gate that features products from a dairy coop that is located across the street. 200B should get you to old city during non rush hour.
Very nice Zoo, animals from all over the world. Staffs were working very hard to make this reopening for everyone. They put in a lot of effort to make sure that everyone is safe due to Covid19. A Big Thank You to all of You. 🙏🙏
Pretty much non different for many others zoo I visited. The zoo generally is not bad, but is lack from renovation and maintenance. Actually I have to say that being under covid emergency, I have found it better than I thought. Anyway the negatives are many, like often you can only see one animal per specie, like in the case of Orangutans, while in other cases the attractions is closed. Pathetic the visit to the Panda house, where you have to pay an extra ticket to see a poor old and lonely Panda, behind a glass gage that is not doing else than sleeping. Plus are you can visit the zoo by caddy golf car obviously paying an extra, and the place is not small.
