Hi,

have anyone been to taipei zoo? wanna to have some comments and reviews, thanks

personally i find tat their zoo is much much bigger and their entrance fee is very very cheap, NT$60. but when u compare abt things to see and shows all this, our zoo is much better. when u reach there, they will give u another ticket for the panda 1...u must go in and watch panda within a certain period of time. panda is located near the entrance. i suggest u go take their tram all the way up to the top of the zoo and walk down, like tat u'll not be so tired.
