Hsinchu Zoo is much more like a mini petting zoo than your standing understanding of a modern municipal zoo. If is an easy stroll around but you will be competing with families and school tours which seem to keep this place busy.

It was an old zoo requiring attention. At the moment the City government is working on a project to renovate it along with the Hsinchu Park and it is expected to be reopened sometime in June, 2018.

Smelly and sad place to visit. Better go somewhere else is you want to enjoy yourself or escape the city.

The zoo is in a run-down condition. I feel sorry for the animals in that place. The animals are being neglected.

It's a zoo which has a long history. There are lots of animals in Hsinchu municipal zoo, for example, tiger, Malaysian sun bear, sika deer, and crocodile. Incredibly, it only charges NT$20 as admission. It's a great place for kids and couples.

This zoo is a small zoo. It's closed on Mondays but otherwise it's a nice little zoo. Not very big and you can get through it in about an hour. The kids really enjoy watching the animals. Not the most exciting zoo but it's a...More

Smaller sized zoo that you can see in an hour or two. I enjoyed the tigers and orangutan. The entry was cheap, under NT$100 (I can't recall the exact price). Good place to take the kids or girlfriend. Worth checking out.
