Disappointed

This zoo has gone way out of maintenance. A lot of the animal exhibits were empty and looked like less animals in this zoo compared to my visit few years ago.

It is near for who stay at Johor Bahru. Seems hot and a long way for a walk. Well, there is a train service, just queue up and hop on. Saving your energy and time.

Melaka Zoo in 1980 - abandoned Zoo with very minimal to view at animals an as a student back on that time muck low education tour, several years later back now. Must say kudos to Malacca Government that should proud, what was different now. Different part of the worlds animal collections can see now days. Excellent for kids education.

for adults are nothing special, but my 2 kids very happy. We went there on the 2nd day of Hari Raya. No crowded, no long queue & no jam in the car park. My kids really enjoy watch Animal shows, foods & beverages are expensive. Tip: Show your MyKad to get discount.
