We went to Chiangmai Zoo after our big breakfast in Fern Forest Cafe. I will feature this forest cafe in my next post. The timeline isn’t really important as usually I don’t want to post two similar topics after the other. So here you go! as I said we enjoyed our BIG breakfast before we came, I’m not sure how is the food in zoo so would better to have your breakfast or lunch first before you came. If you have ever been to Singapore zoo, please don’t expect it will be something similar. There lots of slope and not an easy walk from one spot to another. However you can choose to rent a Golf cart, it cost 350 Baht/H and the next hour is 300 Baht/H. You also need to buy tickets if you wish to go to the panda dome as well! It cost 100 Baht. So every show needs money!
Take a map at the ticket booth, the map will show you the quickest route from one spot to another. There are also locker, wheel chair provided. The zoo opens from 08:00 -17:00, so don’t go there too late as there so much to see and of course more to walk!
Anyways, let’s get more in depth to the zoo. First we took a dok dok from the cafe to the zoo, it cost around 200 bhat for 2 person, so it’s not too expensive. You can buy the tickets at the ticket booth in the entrance and it cost 150 Bhat (adult) if you choose without visiting the aquarium. If you do want to go for both, then there’s a package, I don’t remember the exact amount but cost around 500 bhat up, and believe should be more. As we have been the Singapore zoo not so long time ago, so we decide just to visit the animals. The weather is not really good on that day, it’s cloudy and almost have a heavy rain! I can see the very dark clouds just above us! So we almost need to move so quickly without seeing any show as I need to take pictures at the outdoor before it starts to rain.
