  • Everything is fine, the area is full of attractions, animals, for the little that pleases. We do not particularly finicky to zoos in General, most importantly a child like. But they were in celebration of Tet (NE NG lasts 9 days) and it was Achtung! The number of Chinese and Vietnamese per square meter is simply zashkalivalo, stepping on your feet, enclosures, no queues at rides. And so in all public areas.

  • If you have ever been to a "real" western zoo this place will be VERY disapointing, few animals, the locals throw trash at the animals !! VERY small enclosures....NOT worth the time or money to see.
