Chiangmai zoo is great place to visit. The zoo features some good exhibits like koalas, an aquarium and Panda. Visitors can feed some animals like the Giraffe, the Ostrich and Koala. The Chiangmai zoo lets visitors learn how to care for some animals and get closer to the animals. The featured program called Koala encounter allows the visitors to hold, feed and take pictures with the Koala. It costs 1000 bahts for 10 min with the Koala, that’s for a group of people. Its a nice experience. To get around the zoo they have a nice monorail allowing an overview literally. The monorail in the zoo takes you on a tour above the tree tops, the view from above is great.
The zoo has penguins in their natural habitat. watch this video
