Nice nature. But the animals are not lucky being there at all. Got better last years but still not enough.

Was a very average zoo with some animals looking malnourished and/or neglected. We hired carts and thank goodness we did as its full of massive hills and very spread out. The older people in our group would not have been able to walk it. I...More

It's THB 150 per person for the non-Panda tickets and if you include the Panda zone, then it is THB 100 more per person. If you are taking your own car inside, you need to pay THB 75 extra.

It was open during my visit. You might contact the zoo when in Chiang Mai before you go there. There are many things to do in Chiang Mai. I would also highly recommend a visit to Pai and Dragon Flight zip line.
