Taipei Zoo 臺北市立動物園

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!

    A must everytime we come


    A must everytime we come to Taipei, it has 1 of the cheapest entrance fee and train rides we have ever been. Its a big zoo so kids below 5 would need a stroller as it's tiring for them on foot. Only drawback is that the zoo closes at 5pm.

    One of the best zoos in the world.


    I love this zoo. The entrance fee is low, you can get really close to the animals and they have pandas. We came here three years ago when the pandas were babies, now they have grown but crowds of people want to see them. The zoo is clean, the bathrooms are spotless and the gift shop has little animal toys, pencils and pens which are very inexpensive. A great place to buy souvenirs.

    Very natural settings


    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! You can also catch the gondola from within the zoo up the mountain.
