  • This really is the best thing in the city. However, I found myself to be very sad in this zoo. Many of the enclosures are way too small for the animals. It really broke my heart.  more »
  • Once located in the very city center in a congested space last decade the zoo enjoy the plenty of space in the near suburb area. It is a wonderful place to relax summertime, especially with children  more »

  • One of the best zoos in the world. Has almost every animal you would ever expect. Language barrier is not a problem. Easy to spend over 3 hours there.
  • Cute bears. A good place to spend three hours with pleasure.
  • The best zoo I've ever been to. Animals live in families.
  • New buildings and exhibits. Has been modernised over the years and is much better now. Still has the older animal habitats. The orangutan is very funny. He has a piece of strap he lets down from his habitat through the bars for people to give him treats. He loves cookies. When the zoo keepers go in his cage, he hides the strap so they won't take it away from him. He is a must see at the zoo!!
  • Excellent place.amazing to find rare birds and animals... Maintained very well in extreme weather....
