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.

Well...there are a lot of tortoise and alligators. The zoo has a big land area offering a big habitat for its bear and lions.

Small zoo with animals of Asia. Looks like they were well taken care of though. Stroll through on our way to Maokong for a bit, it’s not too bad.

We went for the gondola to this part of Taipei and decided to go the zoo also. The tickets are very cheap, so for a short view it's still worth it. We first went to see the panda's, who luckily just were getting their daily...More

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.
