Chiang Mai Zoo reviews
Great zoological facility, a lot of good infrastructure. Staff cordial & pleasant. Beautiful natural hillside setting beside Chiang Mai University Campus, lots of native flora & native bird life on... more »
Doesn't have much animal, and the environment for some of the animal i felt its so poor for them specially for some of the monkeys .That's sad to see. 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.
