    The zoo is nothing great at all. For RM85 per head, it's quite expensive and not worth wasting 2 hours or the money in the zoo. The Panda enclosure is over rated and actually sad to see the Pandas in ...  more »

    The zoo is totally run-down and the animals are in a pitying state. The cages are dirty, animals are without food/water and also, I saw two holes on a deer body. Am sure is infected by maggots. Can th...  more »

    I was here with my bank for our CSR project. Prior to this visit, the last time I was here was when my little bro was a kid. After volunteer work was over, I had the luxury to stroll around the zoo an...  more »

    Great place for family especially for kids. Lots have changed then before. Last time came here previously was about 25 years ago. Brought daughter here for her birthday. She got very excited watching the animal show. Also brought my mom who's stroke patient and need to ambulate with wheelchair. The zoo staff is very helpful and friendly from the ticketing counter till the tram driver. Had a very good time there. Will come back for sure 😊

    I don't notice any significant change or improvement since I last visited about 5 years ago. I think the place is still the same. There is one project that was supposed to be completed in April 2017. Until now the site is still in construction. Its all about money here. From the parking to the entrance to the pictures. I am not sure if all of this money collected/made is channeled toward the development of the zoo. I can see many donation boxes around. Not worth the visit.

    I think the price have increased due to the presence of the Pandas here. Maybe they need more money for maintenance of the animals *the pandas live in an airconditioned room* There are no students price for the entrance. However, they offer discounts for the souvenirs picture. The picture taken was beautiful *Shout out for the photographers*. I recommend people to wear sports attire there so that you dont hurt your feet. It was a good experience to watch the pandas there. They are so cute and fully and playful.

    It's good but not special, and I'm disappointed a bit.. Many parts are closed, like the bears, snakes, fish... In a few trips in the Malaysian jungles, I saw many animals are not existed in the zoo, like black monkeys, huge, will boar, lizard and more .. At least they can add them

    The only Zoo in the city. The Pandas are one of the star attraction here. Animals are well fed and clean. Parking is a problem during weekends and school holidays. So if you are planning to take your kids and spend a day here, use public transport or GRAB or Uber. Save the hassle of the constant jam in this area.
