Chiang Mai Zoo - Review
At the foot of Doi Suthep, the Chiang Mai Zoo occupies a lush park setting and boasts a fairly comprehensive assortment of animals plus two special attractions (pandas and an aquarium) that require separate admission fees. The aquarium reportedly has Asia's longest viewing tunnel (measuring 113m) and replicates the water environments of Thailand, from the northern rivers to the mangrove swamps and coastal oceans, as well as the Amazon basin.

Chiang Mai Zoo, Chiang Mai Reviews
Visited a few days ago with my partner (visually impaired). Staff were very helpful. The park is incredibly well laid out - it is also HUGE. So expect a decent walk if you have no transport or don't rent one of the available golf carts. The zoo fields a very wide range of exhibits including some uncommon ones such as monitor lizards in a large reptilian area. The animals appear to be well looked after with good enclosures for the most part. We were really interested to see that you could purchase food from the keepers of certain animals (giraffe, hippo and elephant and deer that we found) for 10THB a bunch, and feed them yourself! Very interesting and certainly not something I have seen elsewhere. Overall a great day out for anyone.
Other than the fact I got to see the panda, I don’t like how they design the zoo. Small spaces for the big animal like they look very depressed. We got the tickets but still had to buy separate ones to see panda. Thinking there were going to be many, but just two. The map is confusing and not provided in paper. U need to drive in and find the map board. Then figure it out on your own where to go to see what. Leaving the zoo to airport took us 2hours (about just 8km) like wth.
This zoo has mixed reviews for good reason. There are some really cool chances to see animals up close and feed them. However, the zoo is massive and difficult to walk. The signs are somewhat helpful, but there are large stretches of the main circuit road with nothing to see. Some of the animals seem like they might be sick. I am not a veterinary doctor, but when an animal is missing patches or fur or feathers, it doesn't look good. It may be normal and healthy, but it looks sickly. Overall this zoo seems to whisper "you should have seen me back then..." It has so many places that probably *used* to be amazing, but now they seem warn down and in desperate need of repair. This zoo and aquarium is worth the price of admission, if only just. 3.5 stars rounds up to 4.
The zoo’s massive! There were lots of places and animals to see. Going for the tour (unlimited pass to some or all areas) is the most convenient way to go around. Make sure to have a break or snack at the food area in front of the orangutans, it has a good view of city and nature.
A zoo in the mountains! That's what I like about this place. The scenery is decent and humble but the atmosphere is relaxing and tranquil. Maybe it's not a weekend. We have a six year old on tow so it is advisable to rent a golf cart so that the hike or journey will be a pleasant one. For the first hour, we have to pay 350 baht and for the subsequent hourly charge is 300 baht. The aquarium is a must to visit as you can catch the underwater creatures up close. The place is air-conditioned so it's a nice place to cool yourself down. Don't bother to get any souvenir though because you can get them cheap at the night market. We spent 4 days in Chiang Mai. The weather was cloudy with showers in the late evening. All in all, the zoo is a good location if you also want to visit Doing Sutep temple. The songtiaw (red pick up ride) ride to the temple is just 80 baht (two-way) per person. The driver will wait for 10 customers before he could drive up the mountains
