Dusit Zoo - Review
One of the oldest zoos in Thailand, this place is certainly a very interesting site. This zoo is situated near the royal palace. The zoo premises were a part of the private garden belonging to King Chulalongkorn Rama V. After the death of the king, the park was given over to the Bangkok government for the benefit of the public. You will be able to find giraffes, elephants as well as chimpanzees along with a great variety of wildlife. The zoo consists of 12 sprawling acres of water. You can take a paddle boat and cruise around it or feed the fish. This place is absolutely perfect for a relaxed family outing.

Dusit Zoo, Bangkok Reviews
Animals from far and wide are featured at Dusit Zoo. Different types of monkeys, hippopotamus, alligators, tigers, and lions together with rare breeds (for Thailand) such as penguins, camels, wallabies, and kangaroos are kept here. Some other highlights include African Savanna, an area where giraffes, ostriches, and zebras roam, Nocturnal House, Reptile House, Pheasants Aviary, Hawks Exhibit, Elephants House, and an impressive Play Land, where many rides are available for your children's laughs and giggles. The park also features an impressive lake, and at a very small fee, you can enjoy boat peddling and feeding the fish at the same time. There’s even a World War II underground shelter near the hippopotamus habitat – a good diversion for those interested in a bit of Thailand’s WW II history. Highly recommended is the Food Centre, a large and convenient cafeteria where a great variety of local dishes and desserts can be enjoyed. There are also a 7-Eleven, a KFC, a Mama (instant noodles) stand, ice cream parlors and refreshment kiosks dotted around the zoo. You can even bring your own food and have a picnic as there's plenty of shady gardens and benches.
Great fun watching the kids enjoy the zebras, giraffes, elephants, monkeys, crocs. We were told it was not functional so were pleasantly surprised to even see an actual penguin show. They were an absolute delight. They played, dove into the water, raced each other and became the highlight of our day. What we thought would be an hour of entertainment ended up to be at least four to five hours of pure fun.
Very nice zoo in the middle of Bangkok. There is a nice skywalk as well. There is a small lake where you can rent cycling boat. Wheelchair accessible. Good for family, friends or even just to go alone and walk. Enjoyable experience for both adults and kids. It's a pity they are going to shut down this zoo by the end of August. 😭😭 Really sad to see it goes.
It has a wide variety of animals including penguin and koala. Very recommended for family. Kids will be happy to spend their time to learn about animals. Suitable as a getaway from daily routine. Cheap entrance fee as well. I myself really enjoy my trip to this zoo when visiting Bangkok.
Great place for family time. Good guide posts especially at Mae Mali's, the hippopotamus. Have only one show (seal) inside. We can spend all day over there and don't worry about meal, there still are plenty of food/drink sold inside the zoo.
