Judging by the exterior the zoo seems to be quite a spectacle but we soon found it to be eerily quiet, however we initially put this down to it perhaps not being a school holiday. The reason behind this soon became clear with the animal...More

Visited this Zoo about 5/6 years ago and it has deteriorated and is now quite average. A lot of exhibits are either closed or run down and lacking in any volume of animals. Went with two other couples who were mutually unimpressed. While entry fee...More

The place is too big, I strongly advise you to take a shuttle or rent a golf cart. There are many mountain roads and the animals are scatters in different part. Entrance is THB 150 excluding panda area.

Amazing zoo with lots of different animals and birds, however panda part - dissapointing - have to buy seperate ticket to see one panda.

This zoo was much nicer than I expected. I went with 5 kids ranging from 4 to 15 and they all had something to enjoy. There were several different animals to feed and get close up pictures (elephant, giraffes, ostriches, goats, deer). The zoo had...More

Beautiful surroundings and very well laid out. Plenty of animals to see. Several shows to watch. Looked to me that the animals are well taken care of. Nothing depressing about the place. Good place to take the kids and enjoy the outdoors.

We visited this zoo recently and paid the normal price to get in. However, as soon when we started walking around we discovered that most things were shut, closed for refurbishment or just completely lacking. We paid extra to get into the panda area which...More

It was open during my visit. You might contact the zoo when in Chiang Mai before you go there. There are many things to do in Chiang Mai. I would also highly recommend a visit to Pai and Dragon Flight zip line.
Hi I am visiting the zoo on the 2nd of April as my daughter is Panda mad. Did you buy tickets in advance or just turn up on the day as dont want to arrive there and for her not to get a chance to see them. many thanks

Hello you can defiantly buy them on the gate when you arrive :) it's massive zoo so I don't think they would ever sell out.
Is the monorail being run again as it seems to have been out of use for years? We shall be coming again in January 2017.

No Monorail but a really good hop on hop off bus around the zoo, much cheaper than the golf buggy
