  • It's a nice zoo. There are lots of animals to see and lots of things to do for children. The best parts are where you go indoors, you can really see all of the work that was put into it, I liked the glass tunnel in the aquarium the most because it was really cool to see the fish around you. Overall it is a nice zoo, but there is nothing there that you won't be able to find any where else.
  • Beautiful to see the world imitated in a small place like that seeing all kinds of animals and plants from far beyond so close in one. But the saddest part is, seeing the animals as prisoners with all the best treatment they are getting every day yet it's sad to see them in cages without their actual freedom they used to have in jungle or actual places. I hope they are one day returns to where they belongs. Because every life needs its own freedom.
  • It's a nice place tot take young kids to. The animals are well presented and really fun to look at. The Zoo also has several covered themed pavilions - the desert, the bush (jungle) and the glorious ocean with a huge fish tank with sharks as well as several smaller ones for all kinds of fish and sea life. There is quite an extensive wooden outdoors playground for kids and another one indoors. The restaurant was busy, but the service went fast. There was no fancy food there though. From years ago I remember the bamboo soup that unfortunaly got cancelled somehow by now.
  • Beautiful park, I really liked the areas where they copy the weather and you can feel like you are in the desert, or on the jungle. I hoped they will have more events, like feeding the enamels, but I did not see any event that going on while I was visiting. Overall we had a lot of fun
  • Nice zoo but the part with the birds was saddening. Very small cages. Birds could hardly spread their wings. Hope something will be done there. When we visited it was very hot but there was hardly any spots to fill up a bottle of water or to buy.
