Whenever I travel, I always look for a famous zoo of the place. This is why we made sure that Taipei Zoo is part of our itinerary.
I find it so cool that we can even use our Taipei Metro ticket to enter the place. Entrance fee is at 60NT while children between 6-12 years of age, students, military & police officers & low-income families can get in at 30NT.
We just rode the Taipei Metro and while we walked towards the entrance, I noticed that the floor has marks of footprints from animals (similar to what hollywood has on their streets wherein hollywood stars have their names printed on the streets).
Since we have limited time due to a plan to go to some other places that day (& my aunt only wanted to see the panda), we were only able to visit some parts of the zoo. Still, I enjoyed my stay at Taipei Zoo! I wish we had more time though..
Here are the display areas we visited:
- Panda House

This is the best area that the zoo has since ofcourse Panda is the most popular animal in China. We lined up just to be able to see 2 cute pandas and have limited time to look and take pictures of them coz obviously there are lots of people waiting for their turn.
The 1st panda is sleeping!!! And he really didn’t care that hundreds of people lined up to see him! hahaha I took a video of him sleeping until the end of my turn, he was still sleeping. Cuteness!
The 2nd panda is eating!!! Total cuteness, he was munching on the grass like he was enjoying it soooo much! You better see this 🙂
- Koala House
- Amphibian & Reptile House
I saw several species & took pictures of them:
Green Tree Python
Iguana – seems like the animals really enjoy eating hehehe! I find this uber-cute!
Turtles – several kinds of turtles in the area. It’s just funny to see them doing different things. I took a video of turtles walking around, turtles eating even (EVEN!) turtles making love! ahahahaha
- African Animal Area
Here is the elephant we saw walking around his area hehehe 😛
