The Basics

Established in 1914 as a private zoo, Taipei Zoo moved to its current location in Muzha in 1986. The zoo has a total area of 408 acres (165 hectares), of which 22 acres (90 hectares) are open to the public. Featuring eight outdoor displays and six indoor areas, the Panda House, Formosan Animal Area, Koala House, and Penguin House are especially popular. There is a lot to see at Taipei Zoo, and you can easily spend half a day here. Take advantage of the internal (paid) shuttle to get around the vast grounds, which are built on a hill.

You can purchase tickets at the gates or, to save time, buy them ahead of time and have them delivered to your hotel in Taipei.
