We have been here numerous times especially because its in the city center and the fees is really, really cheap. We are zoo fanatics you may say with three children and they all loved animals.

In Malaysia there are about 3 big zoos and 5 mini-zoos. This is one of the mini-zoos of about 13 acres. The animals are kept in small cages and fenced-up areas. The exhibits are un-integrated and lacking themes. There are no activities or events or shows. If you asked me I think it is like a private zoo of a... More

All the animals inside seems tired and not aggresive. No return back for me again. Nothing seems fascinating to me there.

Not many animals around. Not being maintained well. There should be some nice attractions created to attract more people to visit the zoo....

Like: Cheap entrance fee Dislike: Visitors easily drop from top into the tigers and lions open cage. Take closely care your kids.

Big spacious room. For Muslims, can pray jemaah. Toilet clean with separate shower room and high water pressure. Housekeeping not well done. Bedsheets not tidily placed under bedding. Dustbin not emptied. Breakfast so so. International buffet dinner not worth it.

The zoo is very clean and the animals are well taken care of. Me and my family had a great time there. I hope that we will visit the zoo again! It was magnificent!

Kids running around, scrambling onto guard fences, built-in wall railings and whacking like nobody's business onto the double layer wire netting fence are amongst the few incidences that results from the lack of security patrolling the zoo. Somehow it evokes response as to whether this could qualify still as a sanctuary rather than a hellish habitat for the animals seeking... More
