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.

We enjoyed the Taipei Zoo with our 7 and 10 year old children. There are so many great exhibits and lots about Taiwan native species. We were there for 4 hours and could have stayed for 6 or 8. It's big, but there is a...More

Entrance fee is one of the cheapest for such an attraction - only 70NT. Easy to buy the tickets on the day itself. Lots of enclosures but quite a few of these were empty. It’s very clean and has wide pathways with toilets, garbage bins...More

If you have kids or someone who love animals, remember to visit here if you are in Taipei. The zoo was clean and well maintained. The ticket price is very cheap and easily accessible by MRT.

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.
