The Zoo is easy to visit by catching a Metro on the Wenfu Line (terminal station). An Easycard is the way to do this and the fare is no more than 50NTD. On arrival you can queue to buy a ticket...

Very beautiful and organised zoo. It is huge and one should visit it in the morning only to make sure it is explored properly. We went there late so were unable to visit each and every corner. It has different areas for different animals of various regions. The ticket is also affordable. There are multiple food courts in the zoo, so no need to worry about carrying food and water.
Incredible variety of animals, from Australian wildlife to African safari animals and panda bears. This zoo takes a whole day to venture through. Strollers recommended for kids, it’s a lot of walking. The bird area is fun because you see a large variety of birds in an open space setting, peacocks chilling in the same area as flamingos. Plenty of space for picnicking and rest areas. The Panda house closes at 5PM and they are adamant about getting people out at 5 but it’s so worth it because you can see 2 of the pandas that were born in the zoo. And the pandas are not shy about saying hi! Normally I feel sad about seeing animals in their cages, but these animals seemed pretty happy. Except for the penguins, they all seemed content to be living there. The penguins wanted out, and they have buckets placed in their caves so the penguins stand outside for visibility. Some of the penguins were just starring at the wall.
