    Chiang Mai Zoo Sets New Visitor Record With Panda-Monium

    (CTN News) – Approximately 7,000 people flowed through Chiang Mai Zoo on Friday, its highest number in ten years.

    In addition, the zoo collected over 1 million baht in admission fees despite 3,000 visitors entering for free.


    Children are free to enter Thai zoos during the current four-day public holiday for His Majesty the King’s birthday.


    Chiang Mai Zoo‘s aquarium and panda enclosure are the most popular attractions, with 3,000 to 4,000 visitors per day.


    As many as 1,400 vehicles filled the zoo’s parking lot on

    There is a giant panda on loan from the Chinese government at the Chiang Mai Zoo.


    After Xuang Xuang died of a heart problem in his enclosure at the age of 19 in 2019, the 20-year-old female panda has been alone at the zoo.

    In October 2003, the pair arrived at the zoo. Through artificial insemination, Lin Hui gave birth to Lin Ping, their first child. In 2013, a baby panda was shipped to China.

    ^^ NO! I am in the middle of renovations at the house. I only have been out to Central to run errands and get my internet reconnected.

    ^ And, I am using Grab because I was told it would take three months for my new car to come in.

    7,000 pax, how big is the car park?

    1,000,000 baht for 4,000 paying visitors…250 baht each? That’s not bad value.

    Just as well, renting pandas isn't cheap.

    Are they paying for it? Sometimes they just do it as a good will, soft power, sort of thing.
