Introduction

The Taipei Zoo is one of the ten largest municipal zoos in the world and the largest in Southeast Asia. Getting there is easy: just take the MRT Muzha Line southbound all the way to the terminal station. As the zoo is home to more than 400 animal species, rest assured there’s plenty to see!

The zoo includes 7 indoor exhibits, each with different themes.At the Insectarium you’ll meet several butterfly species unique to Taiwan. Next, you won’t want to miss the hugely popular Koala House and Penguin House. There are also two giant pandas from China! These animals are the Zoo’s resident celebrities, so be sure to check them out!

The star of the zoo used to be the Asian Elephant “Grandpa Lin Wang,” who lived to the ripe old age of 86. Lin’s longevity—20 years older than most Asian Elephants—was hailed by zoologists as a miracle. After his death, Lin was stuffed and put on display, and now enjoys the distinction of being the world’s largest stuffed Asian Elephant! You can see him on display in the Education Center.

Apart from the indoor exhibits, the Taipei Zoo also features 8 outdoor exhibit areas. The latter are divided according to geographical environment, and possess educational value both as exhibits and ecological environments. The “Children’s Zoo,” “Formosan Animal Area,” and “African Animal Area” are the most popular, according to Internet voting. The Formosan Animal Area includes endemic species like Formosan sika deer, Taiwan macaque, and Swinhoe’s pheasant. These animals can only be found in Taiwan—definitely worth a look!

    Large site with large enclosures .

    2020-03

    The zoo was easy to access via rail. It was surprisingly a very large site with amazing large enclosures for the animals. We recommend getting the bus to the top of the zoo & walk back downhill. It’s by small donation as it’s 1.5 to the top where penguins are. . Entry was $60NT incredibly cheap , Same price for an ice cream. I recommend going early as it’s very popular. Definitely worth the visit. Couldn’t believe it had its own McDonalds at the exit/ entry point. Check what exhibits are closed before entry we were disappointed to find a lot weren’t open and not on the board.

    Watch out for the animanitronic animals

    I went to the zoo to see the giant pandas - they were not visible when I first tried to visit. Huge loop, sometimes confusing. I enjoyed the bird park, koalas and red panda the most. When I circled back the pandas were thereabout both asleep.

    A most excellent zoo

    2020-03

    I’ve been to zoos all around the world and fell that this one is one of the best. The animals are all terrific, well cared-for specimens living in nice enclosures. I saw a bunch of animals I’d never seen before. The rain forest exhibit is not to be missed.

    Huge!!

    2020-02

    I went on a sunday, it wasn't busy and also note that a lot of things are closed on monday!! The zoo is huge!! You can spent hours there! Most animals were pretty active, some you couldn't find because kf bushes which I think is actually good for the animals. Combine this with the maokong gondola!! Zoo closes at 5 or 6, gondola till later so maybe do the zoo first so you'll have enough time for both.

    Highly recommended for kids!

    2019-11

    We visited the Taipei Zoo in early Nov 2019. Weather was great so the long distances to walk within the zoo were not a problem for us. Our kids really enjoyed the attractions within the zoo. I personally think the Taipei Zoo provided a better experience than the Singapore Zoo. Ticket prices were cheaper than expected. Coupled with excellent fundamentals, the Tapei Zoo is excellent value for money. As with most popular attractions, best to visit the zoo as early as possible. Definitely a great way to spend 3-5 hours!
