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.

The zoo was pretty good. Had a great display of animals. It is quite large with plenty of walking required so a level of fitness is probably needed to keep up. The enclosures were well kept and the animals looked healthy. My nephews loved it!...More

A great zoo on a big lush campus. Lots of interesting animals in enclosures that did not evoke too much sadness. Worth a half day. For little ones, the subway ride there is an added bonus. Plan to include the cable car ride as well...More

Shouldn't be a problem to get in. You can either purchase your ticket at the entrance or simply tap your EasyCard for payment.

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.
