Where else can you enter a zoo for merely RM2 in Malaysia. For as long as I can remember, it has been a RM2 entry price for adults. I have always enjoyed this zoo's Roman-pit tiger exhibit but that's all I look forward to when I visit this zoo. Here, visitors may observe tigers from ground level or "from the... More

We came here for a day trip to JB , Malaysia. We are expecting a low quality sanctuary for animals. But we were surprised that the animals are well taken care of. We even have the opportunity to feed the camels, by the caretakers by giving us string beans. My children love what they experienced, feeding live animals by their... More

Clearly shows the age and cleanliness can be the opportunity area to improve. Apart of that, it's an exciting and enjoyable place to be with family. Best spent RM2

Not the best zoo you will see. Quite old style. The children had fun though and it wasnt too pricy. Giving it an average rating cause kids dont mind much and they just want to see the animals.

The Zoo is small and for that price we were not expecting much . It was quite sad to see some of the animals (especially the lions) in a sorry state but most seemed ok and had basic amenities. With a good cleanup and renovation it could be fantastic.

First of all its only RM2 entrance fees, so you have to aspect something worth of RM2. It is good enough to bring your toddler here, however sadly no more elephants. The lions are almost dead to me. The one that worth seeing is hippo, there are two of them, very big. RM1 goes to each Hippo! and on the... More

This is the cheapest entrance fee for a zoo in Malaysia . I'm surprised. Its near the Palace . Animals are generally in good condition and can be better . The smells are too strong , may be because the cleaning work was not properly done , unlike other zoos. Good ambience and reasonable/average size for a city zoo .... More

This is a very small zoo located in a tiny green lung in the centre of JB city. It's in a great location, which unfortunately lands credence to rumors of the zoo being relocated. On the plus side, it's easy to find and you can always park along the side of the road. If you're planning to drive to the... More
