The largest zoo in Asia, this was original a private zoological garden. The giant panda house, Formosan animal area, koala house and Asian tropical rainforest area are of particular note.

A very nice zoo. Nice open habitats to view the animals and surprisingly large variety of animals. Not a lot of shade so avoid going on very hot days. Location nears MRT stop

Extremely large zoo that was well-maintained and very clean. The entrance fee was only NTD$60, which is probably the cheapest anywhere for a zoo of this standard (except for the free Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington DC) . Large variety of animals all in very...More

Taipei Zoo is a great place to take the kids. It's super easy to get to on the MRT Brown Line, and the entry price for the zoo is so cheap. NT$60 for adults, NT$30 for kids/students, and free for pre-school kids. It's a very...More

The best part about the zoo was seeing the elephants being very active. Other than that, it's a run down facility which makes it a depressing experience overall. The zoo needs some TLC, paint and basic care. It's an ok experience of you walk down...More

On a warm day this is going to be hot. No worries with water since there are a lot of little kiosks that sell refreshments. Could use a bit of maintenance on some facilities. The shuttle bus to the gondola was a welcome option. NT$5...More

The Zoo have many Asian animals and well taken care of. Yet the zoo may be a bit "old", as it is going through quite a few renovations in different areas.

I would not recommend this. it makes more sense to visit zoo first and take a break at maokong. most likely you'll spend at least half day in zoo. Then you take gondola up to Maokong, find a nice tea house and enjoy sunset... More

hi! just take the MRT. Much cheaper and stops just a few 100 meters from the zoo. I took the Gondola on the way back just for fun otherwise you can certainly take the MRT back too.
