Zoo / Aquarium Nature / Park
Kebun Binatang Bandung is a 14ha zoo located in the city of Bandung in West Java, Indonesia known for its mistreatment and abuse of the animals that reside there. It was created in 1933 when two existing zoos in the city (Cimindi zoo and Dago Atas zoo) were combined and moved to the current location on Taman Sari street. The new zoo was located in "Jubileum Park", a botanical garden created in 1923 to celebrate the silver Jubilee of Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands.The zoo has garnered widespread negative publicity in recent years regarding its lack of proper animal care. The mayor of Bandung in 2015 stated that he did not possess the legal authority to close down the zoo, which is privately owned. Foreign tourists, as well as some locals, have described witnessing animals eating their own feces and other sights including visibly malnourished bears, deer with severe skin conditions, and animals shackled to the ground. As of January 2017, an online petition had received over 585,000 signatures asking the Ministry of Environment and Forestry (Indonesia) to close the zoo and re-locate the animals to a conservation or sanctuary.

  • Kami datang ke kebun binatang bandung di sekitar pukul 15.00 wib dan ternyata kebanyakan bintangnya sudah masuk ke dalam kandang sehingga tidak banyak yang bisa dilihat.  more »
  • Bandung Zoo should be closed, animals are very ill-treated, malnourished and dirty like cages and places where they are kept.  more »
  • So upsetting and unbelievable. This "zoo" should not be allowed to continue to operate with these poor, helpless animals.  more »

Where to stay in Bandung

Consider staying close to the main train station for simple hotel rooms at affordable prices--and some more expensive brand names--well positioned to explore the surrounding region. In the area surrounding Bandung Indah Plaza, find a cluster of more upscale hotels with comfortable-to-luxury quality rooms, close to the main attractions and key shopping streets. Look closer to the river for quirky boutique-style hotels, and throughout the city for standard guesthouses offering simple rooms at economical rates.
