The Colorful Chiang Mai Zoo

Before I went to Chiang Mai, I asked some friends on what to do and where I should go without spending too much. Two of them suggested that I visit the Chiang Mai Zoo. I was hesitant at first because I am not really fond of animals, but then they mentioned that it isn’t the usual zoo that we usually picture in our minds. They also mentioned that three pandas are staying there. That’s it, I’m going!

From Thapae Gate, I rode a songtaew going to Doi Suthep and asked the driver to drop me to the Chiang Mai Zoo. It was 3PM when I went there and I only have two hours to explore. The entrance fee is 100 Baht.

I am truly amazed upon entering the zoo. I saw this gazebo that reminded me of Baguio City. I can’t really point out why LOL. I am thankful for the perfect weather during my visit. Even the colorful flowers welcomed me with positive vibe.

Where do you want to go?

A trip to the Chiang Mai Zoo is recommended for those who are looking for family holidays in Thailand. Aside from the wide range of animals to see, the ambiance will be appreciated by kids and adults alike.

Here are some of the pictures I took during my short trip to the Chiang Mai Zoo:

Since I only have limited time to explore Chiang Mai Zoo, I wasn’t able to check the Koalas and the Penguins T_T. My main purpose of visiting the Chiang Mai Zoo are the pandas and it didn’t disappoint (although I need to pay 100 Baht to see them). If only I can take one with me! 😛

February is the love month and even Chiang Mai Zoo didn’t let this season of love pass. Just check the pictures below:

When you’re in Chiang Mai, a visit to the Chiang Mai Zoo is not a waste of time and money! So far, it is the best zoo I’ve been to.

The Chiang Mai Zoo is located at Huay Kaew Road near Chiang Mai University. For more information, kindly visit http://www.chiangmaizoo.com/.

  6. We thought the CM Zoo was so bizarre! We visited on Christmas, though, so we mainly went to see the ice display where they made it “snow” every 15 minutes and you could sled down a fake mini-slope. Felt a little like winter, lol!
