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.

Was pretty dull and the use of excessive concrete made the zoo looked unflattering and uncomfortable for the animals. In essence, it was a "concrete jungle" with miserable animals. It could be the cold weather that made the place gloomy and uninteresting. The saving grace...More

Hi! We're planning to take the Maokong Gondola first before visiting Taipei Zoo. But I think you have to visit Taipei Zoo first before you can go to Maokong Gondola. Is there a way where we could ride the Maokong Gondola first and alight at the Taipei Zoo?

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, we plan to travel to taipei zoo and take maokong gondola next month. if we take the gondola to the top, we must take the gondola ride back to the zoo? which zoo entrance is more convenience? is the "each adult is up to 2 children for free for the gondola ride" still valid? the fares of the gondola ride is NTD50 or NTD120? look forward for yours replies. thanks, xuefen

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.
