Taipei – Taipei Zoo

On a nice day, going to the Taipei Zoo, having a walk along the river, and riding the Maokong Gondola would be good things to do.

Sadly, what we had was a very rainy day, so just a short, wet, cold visit to the zoo.

The zoo is in a hilly, verdant area. While generally accessible, some of the slopes were challenging, especially in the wet.

We only got a really good look at the Formosan Animal area, and there the elusive Formosan Clouded Leopard eluded us.
