Chiang Mai Zoo

Chiang Mai Zoo, located in the city, is one of eight zoos run by the Zoological Parks Association (ZPO) across Thailand. Each of them maintains a welfare standard much higher than that of any other facility in the country, including those run by the Department of National Parks (DNP). Funded by the Crown, these facilities are the standard against which all others in Thailand should be measured and offer the most species-appropriate environments for the animals in their care.




  • The single enclosure that could be viewed was spacious

  • It offered an open more natural look with only electric fencing and a moat to keep the tiger inside though no water in the moat

  • Decent amount of natural vegetation

  • Numerous enrichment items including a rope wrapped series of poles
