About Chiang Mai Zoo In Chiang Mai

Although one of the underrated places in Thailand, Chiang Mai Zoo offers an incredible experience for its visitors. Chiang Mai Zoo is located at the foothills of Doi Suthep mountain, spread across a lush area of 200-acres. There’s an interesting history behind the Zoo. The Zoo was created when the son of an American missionary started helping injured animals and took care of them. As the word spread, visitors started coming to watch the animals he treated. In the year 1977, the zoo was officially open as the prime commercial zoo in northern Thailand.

Home to more than 400 animal species of the likes of penguins, koalas, seals, hippos, giraffes, zebras, ostriches, flamingos, camels, lions, tigers, Barbary sheep, Malayan tapir, and more, the Chiang Mai zoo have become one of the most frequently visited attractions by tourists from all over the world. Apart from the rare animals, some of the other attractions here are the Chiang Mai Zoo snow dome and a freshwater aquarium. Chiang Mai Zoo is quite large in itself. Once you are inside the Chiang Mai Zoo in Thailand, you cannot help but take a complete trip of the vast area while watching the animals rest peacefully or play actively in their natural surroundings.

Owing to its huge area, Chiang Mai Zoo is also a popular hiking spot among many travelers who come on a solo trip or with their friends. You can either take a leisurely walk inside the Zoo campus till the aquarium or just watch the animals from the window of your tour vehicle. Your usual tour is also a hike where you get to witness everything around and familiarize yourself with the exhibits on display.

The Cage Area, just beside the entrance, is a quaintly beautiful zone where small animals are protected inside old-school zoo cages. There runs a stretch of flowers around the cages which enhances the area profoundly. In the Open Zoo, you will find a number of species roaming around freely. There are also two spots for picnics - The Breeding Area and Recreational Areas - near the lake at the back of the zoo.
