Johor Zoo, Johor Bahru

2.5
#1 of 6 in Parks in Johor Bahru
Stroll through Johor Zoo, a small venue in the center of the city with a good selection of wildlife. The zoo boasts a long history dating back to 1928 and has in recent years been renovated to better acommodate the animals. Entry is inexpensive and the cages fairly cramped, but the variety of animals is suprisingly high for a wildlife sanctuary of its size. The kid-friendly park also offers several rides around the facility and occasional shows featuring different animals.

    It is Zoo time opposite will time in the mosques and the Koran's voice echoed through the loose-fitting. I felt Tiger for fences less than just 10 centimeters or up the slope is designed to observe the Tiger's head from the Tiger is less stressful. (Malaysia back the Asian short clawed Otter) living in Malaysia, such as the endangered species is just around the corner, are alive and working can be seen. I felt like a rich Zoo animals also went ago the world famous Singapore Zoo just so odd was small, even at the elephant given food (charges apply) is also good.

    It's a quite nice zoo with such limited animals but I can said they maintained this place properly. It's a good place to hang with your family and friends. Yes, the parking is very limited but the ent...  more »

    For an admissions charge that cost less than a can of coke (RM2, S$0.70, US$O.50, ¥50), this zoo, while nowhere near the level of the outstanding Singapore Zoo, exceeds expectations! The general structure might be old, but it's relatively well-maintained and generally clean. Facilities are ample. Refreshments are fairly priced. The variety of animals is decent considering the whole area is actually quite small. Lions, elephants, tigers, crocodiles, ostriches, bears, snakes... Oh my! My only problem lies with the few visitors who have no idea how to behave in a civil society, i.e. littering, being obnoxious or having ridiculous expectations... Annoying traits that can be found anywhere else, not just in this zoo.

    The zoo is reasonably managed with variety of animals who are well taken care of. Children will love the elephant, horses and dear section. There is a toy train but hardly used. Good place to bring children for a whole day of edutainment.

    The price is very affordable so its suitable for students who'd like to kill time. But when I went there the animals looked so hungry (especially the otter) and the place looked so poorly managed (understandable bc of the cheap price). Better to have some improvement if you want to attract some more people.

    Not the biggest or the best zoo but the open concept, cheap fees and within City Centre give the best experience.
