Spent a few hours here on a Monday. Totally full of school kids but still quiet enough to get round all the exhibits. Parts of it could do with more English translation for my liking. Definitely go on the cable cars first for a chance to see all the animals at once

We had a day out at the zoo which started with parking our car 30m from the zoo. We were waved into a spot by 3 guys who were waving people in front into spots.

Visited in June on a Tuesday. Was fairly quiet except for school kids. Was a good zoo, with lots to do and some shows to watch. Really loved the cable car style ride across all the enclosures! That was fantastic! Good selection of animals - some looked really sad :( ... But I would definitely recommend visiting!!
