Zoo has improved since our last visit in 2008. More attraction I would say but they can improve more if they have sufficient fund. People would say the entrance fees is expensive but bare in mind that the fees that we paid goes to the animal food & maintenance, staff salary, zoo maintenance and bills, etc. Unless more giant company...

The last time I visited the zoo was year 2000. 14 years past, and I brought my 8 kids to the Zoo, hoping to see something new or refreshing. To my disappointment, the zoo was still the same like 14 years back, and the aquarium and penguins were the worst! Very dirty, ill looking, deserted aquariums. I was even surprised... More

It's kind of frustrating to see how this place deteriorating. The living in there need more to survive too. It does frustrates my son too as he was expecting to see more animals but not much to watch. Please do something to this place.

We went to berjaya hills and it was terrible too , and after that we went to the zoo . Trust me ... if you go to berjaya hills or zoo , you waste your time and money . The Singapore zoo was great but this one was really bad .

My (young) kids really enjoyed it here but personally I felt there was too much works in progress with empty enclosures. If it wasnt for the pandas the rating would have been much lower, they saved the whole visit for me. It was all about money here, you had to pay for a map of the zoo, there were signs... More
