Chiang Mai Zoo, Chiang Mai Reviews
Quite a large zoo. Good selection of animals. Enclosures fairly good. Animals looked in pretty good shape. Panda exhibit perhaps not worth the extra cost. Both pandas asleep . One you couldn't see at all, other only partially. Shows were short but cute. Good day for the kids.
We went for the night safari and it was fairly disappointing. Being from Canada and therefore English speaking the Tram rides were a bit annoying. Though they say it’s an ‘English’ ride you really get lumped in with Chinese and they say two words of English with the rest in Mandarin. The concept itself is really cool, but I felt like it wasn’t executed well. The two tram rides were exciting because you get close to a lot of the animals but at the same time you can’t help but think that you shouldn’t be that close. The closures were fairly small for the most part as well. The Jaguar Walking Trail was cool at night , but again the enclosures are really not the greatest. The most upsetting part however and which makes me appalled that I even spent my money there was the tiger show. The tigers were clearly terrified and distressed the entire time and they were consistently poked with a sharp metal pole if they did not follow instructions. It is very upsetting that the World Zoo Federation lets this happen. It is truly a Chinese tourist trap. I am a huge animal lover and I wish I hadn’t gone. They have some cool animals that aren’t in any of the zoos in North America I’ve seen but other than that it was completely not worth it.
Best to go in the morning I expect, we went in late afternoon and most areas didn't have a staff member working nor ability to feed the animals. The area is really spread out and hence it's best to drive in with vehicle or pay for a buggy inside rather than walk it unless u Keen for that. The panda was our main reason to going. We weren't with the lack of staff in facility and worst of all not impressed with the Lions at all! They looked under nourished!
We have spent 4h+ in the zoo walking around and it was great. The main path around the zoo is 3.7km but with all the stops we walked 7.6km, so prepare to walk. There are food centers and cafes across the zoo to eat and buy water. You can pay extra 30thb for the bus that goes around the zoo and you can get onto it or if it in bus stops. It is also possible to go around the zoo with your own transportation. They feed Panda at 1pm so don't miss it if you want to see Panda doing something more than sleeping.
This is a big place with lots of hills. So my advice is. Get on a tour bus or rent a golf card. The golf card is around 350 a hour. Or be prepared to do a lot of walking. You have to pay extra to se the pandas and the aquarium. The is a small water kids playground. The whole zoo looks a bit worn down. Some of the inclouseres was a bit small but the animals look healthy. You can easily spend 3 - 4 hours in there.
