Taipei Zoo opened in 1915 and since then has captivated visitors with its wide variety of animals from Taiwan, Australia, Africa, and Asia. Not surprisingly, the highlight of the zoo is the pandas – kindly on loan from mainland China. In addition to the world’s cutest bears, the zoo is home to over 130 species of birds, penguins, reptiles, and an insectarium. There is a designated section called the Children’s Zoo, which is, of course, the perfect place for visiting families. While there, take the lift using the Maokong Gondola, which provides stunning views, especially if you opt for one of the crystal cabins.
