  • It's a disgrace in the name of national zoo. Half the zoo is empty. Had gone to see the panda and was informed it closed at 1630, but was not informed about it when purchasing tickets. Cost us 3 adults and one 3 year old 298 RM such a rip off. Literally cheated us off our money. I feel I paid all that money for a long walk. BE AWARE
  • It's in much better shape than I last visited it about 7 years ago. Though, still much more to improve in terms of facilities and the animals exhibition. But 1 thing is lacking for sure is food options! You can either get way overpriced snacks, ice cream, finger food and drinks with pretty much no options whatsoever
  • Very average zoo. I've seen better zoo in other countries. Animals are not a lot. Really nothing great. Zoo workers forcing us to take picture is annoying. They make it sound like we must take these pictures. But you really don't have to. And the pictures are ugly.
  • Poorly maintained. Pricey entrance. Very few numbers of animals. Very few variety of animals too. Some animals are really under stressful condition, while some are being kept alone when they should be in groups in the wild. Such a shame in the name of national zoo. We have a few other better zoo's in Malaysia.
  • I'm going to be frank and honest; this is one of the worst zoo in the country. Its a shame and quite painful to say that since I have a lot of childhood memories here. The environment is poorly maintained. The animal confines are dirtier than it supposed to be. And the smell? Let's say, a swamp smells wayyy better. Many facilities look like they came straight out of a post-apocalypse film. For some reason, those pandas got special attention. Why? Because they were "made in China"? They are cute, sure, but it would be A LOT better if other animals receive as much love as them. Even tigers, our national mascot never had as much attention before.
