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.

We had visit this zoo on march. The zoo is very big and have a lot of animals such like panda, bear, red panda....etc. It's well maintain and kids friendly. Too bad we do not have enough time to visit all the hall.

I find that the way a zoo is set out gives a good insight into the nature of the country and its' people. This zoo is excellent in that the animals are well cared for and have lots of space.

This is a well managed zoo, with many attractions but panda is the must seen, it can get crowded even during weekday when school groups come. It’s easy to get there by MTR, but get there when it opens at 9am, worth going!

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.
