Taipei Zoo


The Taipei Zoo, well-equipped with expertise regarding animal care and the knowledge of natural history, has committed itself to serving as a leader in environmental education and wildlife conservation. ]The four main functions of the Taipei Zoo are conservation, education, research and recreation. More than four million visitors attend the Zoo on an annual basis; it has also hosted several international conferences on conservation-related topics. In addition, Taipei Zoo has planned and executed several city-wide educational activities pertaining to wildlife conservation themes over the years.

Inside the zoo…

take a map from the information centre on the right as you enter the premises so as to plan your route. You can head for the shuttle train/Maokong Gondola shuttle bus station near the Birds’ World enclosure if you wish to take the gondola.

Otherwise, you can take a stroll inside the zoo and check out the animals.

Honestly the zoo does not offer much to see, and did not really live up to our expectations. Many places were closed or undergoing renovation, but there were many tourists nonetheless.

We would therefore suggest that you spend more time at Maokong instead! There are lots more to see in terms of scenery and shops up at the very top.

Shuttle train station service hours: 9am – 5pm

Gondola shuttle bus: 9am to 4.40pm
*** Not operated on Mondays!! S0 try not to go on Mondays.
