Chiang Mai Zoo was established by the The Zoological Park Organization, Thailand in 1974. Situated on 531 Rai of verdant forest land at the foothill of Doi Suthep mountain, the zoo is surrounded by hilly terrain which is home to thousands of species of wild plants and flowers adorning the natural landscape of valleys, streams and waterfalls.

Chiang Mai Zoo is the first and only zoo in Northern Thailand where visitors can experience the excitement and intimacy of various species of animals in their natural habitat.

Chiang Mai Zoo Layout

Covering as much land as it does, Chiang Mai Zoo can be quite a hike to get around so make sure to familiarize yourself with the exhibits on display to ensure that you get to see everything you want. Near the entrance is the Cage Area, where smaller animals are kept in traditional zoo cages amid a colourful profusion of tropical flowers. Beyond the entrance area you will find the Open Zoo, a 40 acre, walled enclosure where numerous species are allowed to mingle and roam free. A pedestrian walkover allows visitors a unique perspective from which to observe the behaviour of the animals. The Breeding Area and Recreational Areas are located towards the back of the zoo, near a pleasant lake that makes for perfect picnics.

Getting Around Chiang Mai Zoo

The zoo’s main areas are connected by a long road that runs in a loop from the entrance to the lake and back. And when we say long, we mean long. Remember that the zoo covers over 200 acres of land. After walking half of it you might feel like roping an antelope and riding it to the next exhibit. Take heart, however, as vehicles are allowed in the zoo, so if you’re pressed for time or simply don’t feel like walking you can still cover all of the attractions. There are also open air tram busses that take occupants to various exhibits, with tours narrated by the drivers. The park staff is very knowledgeable but their English is not always the best.

If you’re looking for a relaxing and fun day, head to the Chiang Mai Zoo. It is a very pretty area with all manner of creatures, from reptiles to birds. I spend hours watching the hornbills jabber and talk and try to escape. They’re quite intelligent creatures. And one of the highlights is the pair of pandas that were given to Thailand by the Chinese government for the Queen’s birthday several years ago. They are housed in a modern facility with lots of space to play and romp in. Definitely a nice place to roam around without leaving the city limits.

Chiang Mai Zoo is located on the outskirts of Chiang Mai City at the base of Doi Suthep Hill. Walking to the zoo from the old city is possible but as the zoo covers almost 250 acres of forested hill side it is better to go by private tour, Sang Thaew or Tuk Tuk. It is good to combine this trip with a visit to Phrathat Doi Suthep Temple, Bhubing Palace and Doi Pui Hmong Tribal Village.
