Dusit Zoo, 71 Rama V Road, Chitralada, Dusit,
Bangkok, Thailand

Dusit Zoo, popularly known as Khao Din Wana or simply Khao Din, was a historical and iconic zoo located in Bangkok, Thailand. Situated within Khao Din Park, in the Dusit District of Bangkok, it held the distinction of being the oldest zoo in Thailand. The zoo’s origins traced back to the reign of King Chulalongkorn, also known as King Rama V, who established it as his private garden adjacent to the royal palace.

 

 

Over the years, Dusit Zoo evolved into a beloved institution, attracting both locals and tourists who came to appreciate its diverse collection of animals, lush greenery, and cultural significance. It played a crucial role in wildlife conservation and education in Thailand.

However, in 2018, the Zoo closed its doors to the public, marking the end of an era. The animals were relocated to other facilities, and the land was repurposed for other purposes. Despite its closure, the Zoo remains a significant part of Bangkok’s history and cultural heritage.

 

 

Dusit Zoo, also known as Khao Din, is one of Thailand’s oldest zoos, established in 1938 by King Rama V in Bangkok’s Khao Din Park. Covering 188,800 sqm, it’s home to over 1,600 animals, including monkeys, tigers, lions, penguins, and giraffes. There’s even a mini train for those who prefer not to walk the entire park.

 

 

Visitors can explore the animal hospital, museum, education center, and enjoy various leisure activities. Nearby landmarks include the Chitralada Palace and the Parliament. For dining, there’s a spacious cafeteria called the Food Centre, as well as a KFC and 7-Eleven on-site.

Dusit Zoo opens from 8 am to 6 pm, with adult tickets priced at 100 THB. For travel inquiries or more information on tickets, parking, and timings, contact Dusit Zoo customer service. Enjoy a day of wildlife and leisure in this historic Thai zoo.
