The Taipei City Zoo was previously located within the city, across the street from the Fine Arts Museum. Fortunately, the City Government decided to move the zoo out to a mountainous area in Mu Zha where the animals have fresh air to breathe and more room to move. Polar bears and koalas have only just been introduced to the zoo, which was designed by the American firm that also designed the San Diego Zoo.
As a Taipei native, I spent a lot of time at the old zoo when I was young, and was kind of sad to hear it had moved. But it turned out to be a wonderful place, much cleaner, more modern, and generally more pleasant than the antiquated zoo of my memory. Of course, size has its downsides, but I'm sure the animals are happier in the new facility, and this makes them better exhibits. The only thing they're missing now is a panda.
Teipei Zoo, surprisingly a really nice place. Its fairly spread out so bring your walking shoes. Kid friendly place. Clean, convenient, and a great value at 2 USD per ticket. The African animal section was my favorite.
