Located in the city of Taipei, the Wenshan District can be found at the southern tip of the city and provides an array of attractions that make this district popular with tourists from all over the world.

One of the most popular attractions in the Wenshan District is the Taipei Zoo, which is also known as the Muzha Zoo and is the biggest and most popular zoo in Taiwan. It is also well regarded further afield, thanks to its great work in the field of conservation, and its efforts to help many species of animals and to educate people on how to look after them, whilst also limiting the number of poachers.

As the biggest zoo in Asia, there is no shortage of things to see and do in the Taipei Zoo. Some of their most visited exhibits include the Giant Panda House, Insect Valley and Children’s Zoo, the latter of which gives young ones the opportunity to interact with different types of animals, from ducks and cows to birds and more.

The Wenshan District is one of the remotest districts in Taipei, at least that is the impression you might get upon visiting the district, but it is actually one of the most populated districts in Taipei, with close to 275,000 people living in the area.
