If you don't approve of zoos, just don't go, but if you are like me and love animals and love to watch kids interact with them, then this is the place. This is one of my favourite places in Chiang Mai. I usually like to go on weekends when it is most crowded. The weekends are also most likely to have special events. This is the only zoo that I have ever been to, where you can feed a lot of the animals for very small fee. Great place to bring kids, in expensive and fun. Lot of walking, but various forms of transport available for small extra fee. Don't miss Pandas and Aquarium

We have lived in Thailand for many years and this is our favourite zoo. There are lots of extra activities to do here including Snow Town, Tarzan Adventure zip wiring, aquarium and mini ATVs. There are lots of animals to feed including some we have never fed in other zoos such as the jaguar. The cost for animal food is very reasonable at 10-20 Baht and very entertaining for kids and adults alike.
The entrance price is dual pricing and foreigners living in Thailand can get the reduced rate by showing their Thai driving licence. The entrance price for foreigners is still very reasonable.
There are additional costs to pay as you travel around the zoo. The Snow Town is 150 Baht for adults and 100 Baht for children for a 30 minute session. You receive a coat but no boots so pack trousers and socks if you feel the cold.
We tried out the Tarzan Adventure this time and loved it. We paid 500 Baht for adults and 300 Baht for children for a 30 minute, 10 stage zip wire course. As we had never done this before, it was a great introduction and left us wanting to do more next time. The instructors did not speak much English but enough to brief you on safety. Two instructors then accompanied the three of us through the course, paying close attention to our 6 year old, and ensuring we were safe too. There were longer courses available with 26 and 36 stations...maybe next time.
You can also pay extra to visit the aquarium and panda enclosure.
Toilets are plentiful and clean but take your own tissue and soap.

I really like taking my daughter to the zoo in Chiang Mai. You can get very close to the animals and it is very well organised. There is a hop on and hop off bus which enables you to get around the main exhibits. My daughter particularlly likes the pony rides, which are very cheap, and the opportunity to purchase a photo souvenir afterwards. You can also ride the elephants here, so if you are short of time, the zoo is a great place to go.

My dad, friend and I went to Chiang Mai Zoo and absolutely loved every minute of it! They have a large array of both wild and domestic animals and the zoo is massive! We knew there was a lot of walking involved so when we entered the zoo we hired a golf buggy ($300 THB/hr) and it was the best decision we had made all day! There is just so much to see there and its a quick, fun way to get around. We were able to feed the goats and some cows and also feed some koi fish. We missed out on most of the feeding times but it was still fun to go at our own pace.
All of the animals were in top condition, they did not seem stressed or malnourished at all and the enclosures were large enough for the amount of animals it contained.
The reptile enclosures in the park were a downfall because it seemed as if there has been a storm through there and no one has fixed it yet. This is the only section of the zoo where I felt there was overcrowding.
The staff were all friendly and happy to direct you to where you needed to go and overall it was a wonderful day out for both young and old.

Not a great zoo by any standards but the price is cheap and it is good to wander around for afew hours. Can be combined on the same day you visit Doi Sutep
