Dusit Zoo is the first zoo of Thailand in operation since 1938. This place used to be part of the Suan Dusit Royal Park of King Chulalongkorn (Rama V, regining 1868-1910), which was known as "Khao Din Wana". In the reign of King Ananda or Rama VIII (reigning 1935-1946) in 1938, the government of Field Marshal P. Pibulsonggram asked for royal permission to turn the site into a zoo for public recreation. King Ananda granted the request and gave some spotted deer together with a few other animals to inhabit here and named this zoo "Dusit".

Situated in Dusit District, near Vimanmek Mansion, in the heart of Bangkok , it is the only place in the world where albino barking deer are taken care of. The zoo features a nocturnal animal exhibit, white tigers and an aviary with flamingoes as its star. It houses more than 2,400 animals. And as it is set amidst natural surroundings with a large lake, Dusit Zoo provides pedalo services for visitors as well.
