  • Polar bear feeding show was the greatest. There are 2 in a day and I watched both. Many interesting angles for visitors to view animals like polar bears, penguins and seals. Love this zoo !  more »
  • My personal opinion, you can pay this place a visit to help the animals in here. Hope the money they collected from visitors will go to better care of the animals and their living conditions. Faciliti...  more »

  • Animals are lively, the enclosures are big and nicely designed. First time seeing some animal, especially this close. Very good 3-1/2 hours, and they provide trolley and wheelchairs. Excellent accessibility for wheelchairs. Highly recommend, fun for all ages. Also have multiple food stall or vending machine, price sensible.
  • Love the zoo. Could really get quite close to the of the big cats as they seemed to like walking at the edge of the cages. There is a good variety of animals. There are tigers, leopards, red pandas, deers, polar bears, seals, penguins. There is a large cage with many peacocks and they were active and open their tails in full glory. There's also a children's area with small animals. Go at the right timing you get to hold and pet rabbits and guinea pigs.
  • It was a lot of fun. I was spoiled by the San Diego zoo here stateside. The zoo has a nice setup and room for walking. The have a little reptile house and fun hand drawn warning signs. I really liked the seal exhibit. They have a tube that the seal can swim through that also acts as a magnifying glass. So the seal looks massive.
  • Really clean, had a wide range of animals to see, some of which you'd rarely find depending on where you come from -polar bears, penguins, orang utans, red fox, racoons, owls, wolves. There's also decent ice cream at the exit/entrance point next to the souvenir shop.
  • It's a fantastic zoo, no doubt about that. In winter you can see the penguins take a walk around the zoo. Very cute. A lot a animals are kept inside during the Winter so you might not catch much. The bus too and from the zoo can get packed. It's a regular bus so it stops everywhere along the way too.
