About Dusit Zoo

Dusit was also known as ‘Khao Din’ and was the oldest zoo in Thailand which makes it an important historical site. Constructed by King Chulalongkorn (Rama V) as his private garden next to the Royal Palace, it is located in the heart of Bangkok. One of the biggest aspects that makes the place worth visiting is it attracts approximately 2.5 million visitors . Over 1600 varied species consisting of 331 mammals, 170 reptiles, 849 birds have fixed their shelter in the zoo. The zoo includes a diversity of animals ranging from kangaroos, monkeys, zebras, alligators, penguins, camels and giraffes. White Bengal Tiger and Albino Barking Deer which are on the verge of extinction are important highlights of the site. Facilities such as zoo museum, educational center, and a convenient cafeteria give you the perfect feeling of hospitality. There is also a man-made lake inside the zoo where you can enjoy boat peddling, at a very low fare. Dusit Zoo is the full-time fun especially when you have children to take with you.
