  • We went during one of our "rest" days while in Chiang Mai. The zoo was slightly tedious to walk, and all of the golf carts the have for rent so you can drive around the very hilly and distant map...  more »

  • Quite sure good zoo complex, well laid out and takes a good day to get around. Most of the attractions were well kept. There is a monorail that you can ride and the kids enjoyed being able to feed elephants and ride ponies. They have a good range of animals and the enclosures are set out for reasonably good viewing. There is a food hall for lunch and plenty of other snacks available.
  • Awesome zoo. Different style comparing to modern European zoos but definitely worth visiting. Animals are in more natural environment. I wish I had more time there. My kids were amazed too. Pandas (Chiang Mai Zoo is one of 16 zoos outside the China that have pandas), koalas, and much more.
