This not a very big zoo, but the animals look very healthy and are all active . Photo opportunities are abundant. Some screens could be cleaner and I was sortof dissapointed that the bird house was being rebuilt. But it can only be for the better. The reduction for seniors was a nice treat,too.

Did the night safari. Although there are some new electric trams, ours was old and noisy and hardly made it up the gentle inclines. The commentary, all in Malay, was a bit loud. It was a good experience overall.

Lot's of animal. kids love it but the zoo cleanness is out of shape. need to do some gardening. Night safari is not value for money too dark and cant see animal at all. I suggest to have night vision equipment or you will see tree and moon if that nite got moon.

Sorry to note that even though the zoo is located in a beautiful area, efforts shall be made to maintain it clean and safe. Even if we knew that visiting on a weekend, we would not be the only ones there. Families with young kids came pouring over to see the animals too. However, it would help a lot to... More

No much animals to see in the night & it is quite dark but the entrance fee for the night safari is more expensive than the day pass.

Went here on our way back from Penang trip last October and it was definitely worth it. The ticket price is cheap (RM18) and the animals have more freedom than the other zoo i have been to in Malaysia. The monkeys are not in cages, free to roam the zoo and cheekily bother other animals too. Lucky that time i... More

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
