Taipei Zoo in Taipei, easily accessible via the Taipei MRT subway train, is a great place for families. It only costs NT$60 (~US$1.85) for adults and NT$30 for kids (as of 2009.9).

It is big and has plenty of animals, caged and uncaged. There's a little shuttle train to help ease your feet. So if you don't want to walk uphill, you can take it up first and walk down as you visit the different zones.

The main attractions include:

  • pandas
  • king penguins
  • pythons
  • gorillas
  • lions and tigers

Getting there

Take the MRT subway and head for the Muzha line. Take it all the way to the Taipei Zoo station. Once you exit the station, the zoo is right there.
