share this page 

Old yet a favourite by among locals, the grounds were once part of the Royalty.   
Dusit Zoo, or 'Khao Din', is a kinda  animal park with facilities including animal hospital, zoo museum and educational centre, sightseeing train, activities ground and canteen. It's home to some 1,700 domestic and international animals, including albino deer and white Bengal tigers. 

Dusit Zoo was Thailand's very first zoo, est: 1950's. It's surrounded by important landmarks such as The Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall, Parliament and Chitralada Palace (King Rama IX’s official residence).

Formerly part of Dusit Royal Garden called Khaodin-wana, it was built by command of King Rama V as his private botanical garden. Later, King Rama VIII donated the park to the Bangkok Municipal Administration so that it could be used as a zoo and public park. As well as its educational value and contribute to breeding and conserving animal species, the zoo has always been a favorite recreational destination for Bangkok people.
