Enjoying the draws at Chiang Mai Zoo

Posted by Northerner on September 15th, 2013 filed in Attractions

From humble beginnings six decades ago, Chiang Mai Zoo has evolved into a massive 200-acre complex that is home to around 400 different species from all corners of the globe. It houses the standard African genres among which are ostriches, lions and giraffes. Camels, Asian elephants and other species of big cats are in large enclosures designed to replicate their natural environments.

An addition a few years ago was a family of cuddly koalas. The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of cuddling a koala is available, but with a hefty 1,000 Baht price tag. The zoo’s famous trio of giant pandas have their own gigantic dome in the middle of the zoo. At the end of this month, the trio will become a duo for a few months because Lin Ping is off to her ancestral homeland in China to procreate.

The Humboldt penguin building is an authentic mock-up of the creatures’ South American environment and a cool place to shelter from the heat on hot summer’s days. At the nearby seal building, skilled trainers assist in putting on daily shows with these lovable marine animals the star performers. The zoo’s website gives details of show times.

A large walk through aviary, the snow dome and a 133-metre-long tunnel through the aquarium are the chief among myriad other highlights of a visit to the zoo. Chiang Mai Zoo is open from 08.00 to 17:00 every day of the year and sits at the foot of Suthep Mountain at the west end of Huay Kaew Road.
