It's a zoo which has a long history. There are lots of animals in Hsinchu municipal zoo, for example, tiger, Malaysian sun bear, sika deer, and crocodile. Incredibly, it only charges NT$20 as admission. It's a great place for kids and couples.

Lol. Yep, they had that, as well as a raccoon exhibit! But they did have more exotic animals, as well: gorrillas, bears, a hippo, and some other cool animals. It costs less than a dollar to visit and it is good for an hour or two. I enjoyed it, seriously.

This zoo is a small zoo. It's closed on Mondays but otherwise it's a nice little zoo. Not very big and you can get through it in about an hour. The kids really enjoy watching the animals. Not the most exciting zoo but it's a nice place to go and take the kids when they are bored.

Smaller sized zoo that you can see in an hour or two. I enjoyed the tigers and orangutan. The entry was cheap, under NT$100 (I can't recall the exact price). Good place to take the kids or girlfriend. Worth checking out.

There were a lot of people there so it is popular locally but I'm used to the newer zoos which try to create an open not overly apparent caged animal pen. I was there in Feb and it had a strong odor - may be more offensive in summer heat. I left quickly. The street musicians, magicians and jugglers outside... More

Costs less than £1 to get in. Over 65s, free. Only small and looking a bit run down, but signs of improvements. Mainly small animals, although there is a huge hippo. Look out for the mynah bird (tucked out the way in a small dark cage) who has the most amazing call which sounds like someone knocking at a door.... More

A tiny zoo which took us around 2 hours to go around. Adjacent scenic spot is The Glass Museum. Will be a good package to visit with the zoo though.

Although the Zoo is very small, the animals have enough space and looking healthy. No activity for a whole day, but quite nice for a few hours.
