Taipei zoo is still the best in the Taiwan and famous in the Asia area. Two Dallas to enter such a excellent zoo is quite valuable. Taipei zoo is not only for fun to kids but a zoo park to adults. Even the foreigners are welcome to visit, there are many Taiwan native animals. If you’d like spend a half day to enjoy walking in an animal forest, Taipei zoo is a good choice.
The only zoo I've been to is the Singapore zoo, in comparison, this is a lovely experience. Was here on a Monday, and it felt like the place belonged to us. The zoo is green and the animals have a lot of privacy. Was here in March so the weather was perfect for a stroll. Another reason this place wasn't crowded was probably because the cable car is shut on Mondays. There are no animal shows and I personally like that. Nothing overproduced.
