Even before you enter the Zoo, you will be truly amazed by all the small kiosks selling souvenirs, titbits , paintings and etc in front of the Zoo entrance and there are also activities that you can participate. Well done to the Taiping Zoo management for providing such activities. As for the animals, all are truly amazing and the area... More

Nice place to go for the kids. Learn something about the animals. Light could have been a it better placed to see some of the animals though. Some places just too dark to see anything and some are strongly backlighted.

For a small town, the night safari seems to be quite well kept and managed. The animals seemed ok, quite well treated and enclosure had a plenty of flora and wasn't smelly. A tram drove us tourists for about a 20-30min ride around the night safari.. stopping briefly at the Tiger enclosure where a few tigers came down into the... More

My 6 year old daughter loved this - a highlight of our trip to malaysia. You get taken around the zoo in little "trains" past all the dark enclosures and cages. There is a real thrill when a black panther appears from the shadows, or a crocodile is revealed by a torch light. It was such fun, we went straight... More

This place is mediocre at best. If you've been to the Singapore Zoo and Safari, don't let yourself down by coming here! The animals are hardly visible both during the day and night. And if you manage to catch a glimpse of the creatures, they look restless and are generally inactive. If you want to see animals up close, you'd... More

River cruise is a new attraction as only opened in 2012 it's worth a visit but if you want to spend time here don't book a trip via your hotel as they pick you up at 12.30 only to take you in the wrong direction to Chinatown to pay and then the opposite side of the Island via coach and... More

Nothing special Its a big let down if you have visited the Singapore zoo Cost of RM 20 is fine The major attraction was feeding the giraffe, kangaroo and interacting with the monkeys. Avoid the night safari as they will show you the same zoo at night. They claim its different...But I don't know how as I decided to give... More

I've been here multiple times growing up. The night safari is quite worth it. If you go during the day try to go early, it gets really hot and not forgetting the mosquitoes. This place could be better if it's well managed.

A few years ago, the night safari was quite popular. During my recent visit, I found that there wasn't as many visitor and some of the areas in the zoo were not very well-litted to allow visitors to walk around. There was no queue at the tram stop when I arrived. Visitors wont have to wait long for trams to... More
