Lonely Planet review
The Chiang Mai Zoo occupies a park setting at the foot of Doi Suthep that is often crowded with Thai families and school groups. The zoo has the usual menagerie and several special exhibits requiring separate admission, including the aquarium (adult/child 450/350B) and the panda house (adult/child 110/50B). A shuttle bus and monorail (adult/child 100/50B) make a loop around the grounds.
It is a pleasant, traffic-free zone for children to roam, though the facilities are ageing and under-populated by animals, especially the exhibits that are further up the mountain.
