Large zoo with plenty to see. The aquarium was well stocked with many interesting exhibits. Elephants are dotted around the zoo (including a tiny baby) all of which you can stop and feed. On the downside be prepared to keep paying for the bus (70bht each), the pandas (200bht each), the aquarium (450bht each)...etc...etc. So with a family 4 we spent over 3000bht. For that amount I want soap in the toilets and a bus service which runs every 5-10 minutes and doesn't keep me waiting for half an hour. I really dont like this price for Thai's and price for pharang idea which seems to be the norm now. Come on Thailand, if you charge these kinds of prices then your customers will expect excellent service.

Im not a zoo fan but wanted to see pandas for the first time. The zoo grounds are very beautiful set in forest & thick with flowers. There is a lot of uphill & downhill walking to do so try & get your scooter or car passed the parking attendants at the gate - all the Thais do & it's possible to drive around the entire site. On the day I visited many of the animals were not in their enclosures - no Urang Utangs, Lions or Tigers. It feels as though the zoo might be relying on the Pandas to attract customers. However the Pandas made up for it all, the result of a lengthy breeding programe, mum, dad & son are all their to enjoy. There is excellent information in English about the breeding program and you can get pretty close to these beautiful beasts. In fact a highlight of the zoo in general is the absence of bars, giant ditches & glass walls deprecating the public from the animals. It's a pleasant place to spend a few hours & reasonable value at 200 baht including entrance to see the Pandas.

It was a nice excursion to the Chiang Mai Zoo. It is a very big zoo with aquarium and exhibits spread out over a big area. The van we rented drove us around the area as it is too big to walk around. I only managed to visit the pandas, tigers and the aquarium. Certainly worth another visit the next time I am around this area of Thailand.

Not a big fan of Zoo's to start with. Been in Chiang Mai for a few years and only went as had friends in town that wanted to visit the Zoo then head up to Doi Suthep. Having been to what I would call first class Zoo's before (Sydney's Taronga Zoo for example) this was so far removed from that. Depressing to see animals in small cages pacing due to stress. Will never go back and I am sorry I gave them my money. Would rather have donated it to an animal welfare charity. All in all a very depressing day.

If you like animals then don't bother! The keepers sell pieces of meat to feed the leopards etc who all look very stressed
