Took my son here for his 7th Birthday with his friends, They loved it and had an absolute blast .. The entrance fee is quite cheap. The animal enclosures themselves are in terrible condition. Very very dirty. The Hippo enclosure was dry and dirty with very little water for them to actually swim in. There was no shade for them.... More

lots of very sad looking animals in mostly too small dirty and depressing looking cages there was a sign not to throw coins into the very dirty and filthy concrete basin of the crocodiles, but not many guests or staff were bothered about this, even the sign reads the coins can cause death for the crocodiles. most children were tapping...

My kids asked to go to the zoo and see the animals. So we went. To our dismay we found many of the animals is small cages or inappropriate habitats. Not to mention just about everything is filthy. I was nervous for our health and safety as we noticed a number of animals in cages were marked quarantined. Yet were... More

It was nice to roam around and see the exotic animals as I have never seen a giraffe or panther. I must say though there were many displays that were close or under renovations like the elephants as well as the nocturnal animals. Many peoples reviews state the lion is always groggy and that was absolutely true during my visit.... More

The whole time we were there we could not wait to get out it was hot humid and boring Dolfine show was like everywhere else you could pet the them for an extra cost and you could take pictures with tigers but that's it

Animal lovers would do well to avoid a visit to this zoo. The conditions of confinement are fairly grim...but if you ever wanted to touch a monkey through the steel bars, this would be the place to do it. Aside from the conditions, there is not really much to see. The whole park can be comfortably walked in an hour,... More

We found this zoo to need some renewal. The facilities look old, the hipopótamus are in a somewhat confined area, the restaurants should be improved, the lack of elephants and pandas at this moment we're a big miss - as other reviewers mentioned this zoo has a great potential to attract tourists if the facilities are updated, more info in...

The zoo has potential but could be better maintained. The entrance fee is affordable and some of the enclosures seems to be o.k., it also seems that there is some reconstruction on the way (Elephant enclosure e.g.). For me the Reptile house was the best part of the zoo with a big variety of snakes and crocodiles. Also the groups... More

We visited on Sunday 18th January 2015. Initially we thought the enclosures were better than we expected and everywhere was clean. I should say we are NGOs with a lot of experience of visiting zoos in SE Asia. Then we saw a lot of enclosures that clearly not been updated for at least 20 years. The whole visit was spoilt...

Although extremely busy, this is a very tired looking place and the animals look tired and fed up. admission is cheap, but that is no reason for looking at animals that are not happy, water for them was not clean. They are clearly refurbishing the elephant area. We were sad and disappointed for the animals sake.
