Taipei Day 2: Taipei Zoo 臺北市立動物園

Read Day 1 of my Taipei Trip (Ximending):

Day 2 at Shilin Night Market:


Finally back to blog about Day 2 of my trip to Taipei earlier this year. Time really flies and I already started school. Finally got my hands onto my laptop to finish up this blogpost! To be honest, if I were to go back to Taiwan again. I will probably go for a longer duration probably around two weeks so I can explore other places like Taichung and Tainan. I personally feel that in Taipei 3 days maximum is enough to visit all the attractions.

So on the second day of our trip, we decided to visit Taipei Zoo! You must be thinking Singapore also have zoo what... so what's the difference.. well you got to read below to find out more haha!


To get to here, you will either need to take a taxi from your place or you can conveniently take the MRT from your destination (just note that it is actually at the other end of the line if you are coming from Ximending or Taipei Main Station, you will be required to change lines in-between. Taipei Zoo is the name of the station (Ikr, they have a station just for their zoo). If you are visiting the zoo, you might want to consider visiting the Taipei Gondola, it is also another attraction right next to Taipei Zoo. To find out more you can check it out here: http://www.gondola.taipei


Here's the picture of their Train map just for your reference. The travel distance took me about 20-30 mins to get to my destination. 


I am amazed that the ticket only cost me NT$60 (Approx; SGD2.60), so much cheaper compared to a regular entrance ticket to Singapore Zoo. If you are coming here on an empty stomach, not to worry because they have Macdonlads inside the zoo. Preferred time to visit the zoo is the morning or the late afternoon because, the zoo is quite crowded even on regular weekdays!


Selfie with Peck and Krystal!


Was playing around with my monopod!! 



First stop was the monkeys! Had a hard time trying to snap their pictures as the pictures are either of them facing their butt towards me or it's them running around places. 


This was my closest to the tiger! So adorable and fierce looking!! 



"Eh don't snatch my food!!!"


Any resemblance? Hahaha


Typical tourist shot! Thought I looked nice in here!


One of the most unpleasant shot, because they were making some "cakes."


Kangaroos! My favourite animal!


There's also a butterfly garden as well!! I kinda was afraid to enter because I'm afraid of insects. Yes, even for butterflies.


Bumped into my secondary school juniors! So coincidental!


Ending off with a picture of myself with white flamingos in my background.
