Zoo Johor was interesting. A very kampung-like environment. Some of the areas are under construction. There are quite a number of animals too. Horse/pony riding is available with a cheap price. Avoid going there during the noon, it will be very hot. Don't forget your insect repellant and shades!

Happy to find an outdoor educational place for the little one. I am really surprised by the many types of animals there. And all for only RM2 per adult. Definitely a good place for children.

With the cheap price ticket, i think what they offer more then worthy. Not much animals to see but for fun this where u can go. Small place so not much tired for small children and elderly. They also have small park for playing and small pond. Exceptable price for food.

The place for kids cheap thrill to learn about animals. Don't forget to bring in at least 1 large cabbage. You can use it to feed the sheep and cows near the hippotamus location. There is also a pond where you can rent a paddle boat and go round the pond with the kids.

First of all, the is no special parking lot at this zoo. You have to park on a roadside. Lat time I went there, the entrance fee was RM10 so please don't expect too much from this zoo. The zoo area is small with only one quite pathetic cafe. Not so many animals inside but the tigers were great! Other... More

A fun day out. We are not normally a fan of zoos but this was better than some. The animals/birds looked to be fed and were clean. We didn't come away upset!
