If you wanna lose weight, go to Chiangmai Zoo, seriously. You can really go nuts if you hike through the Chiangmai Zoo on foot, like what we stupidly did. We didn’t do much research before going to Chiangmai Zoo and walked pass the train service ticket counter without suspecting anything. On the brighter side, we did burn a substantial amount of calories covering 200 acres of land.
Somehow the animals here looks very hungry, always eagerly looking for food. I had heard some zoo operators will starve their animal so they will eager to interact with visitors for food. I hope, that is not happening here.
There’s a time when we reached the top side of the zoo and I was so exhausted that I wish that I could just roll all the way down back to the starting point. By the time we reached the foothill (half dragged by CS) we were all soaked through with sweat.
It’s a mixed feeling whether I consider this place as a good place to go for a half day tour. I don’t like the way some animals were treated here but if this zoo lacks of visitors and had to close down, lots of animals will die – killed or could easily die in the process of being shifted to other zoos.
