“A nice and well kept zoo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2013

Panda exhibits layout could be improved, HK Oceanpark layout is better in that it allows a clearer and nearer view of the pandas activities. Good varieties of animal species and zoo on the whole well kept and clean.

“Renovating and grey place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

Its a very grey and tired looking zoo. Sorry to say for a cheap price, I may just give it another star. But other than that, there is no way it deserves another tick for me. Agagin, this is a 100 yr old zoo so it probably just old. They are doing a lot of upgrading works now because they are celebrating the 100th anniversary next year. So go at your own disappointment.

“Really cheap entrance fee but...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

Pros
The Green Activity for kids was quite engaging and my friend's 10 year old son had some fun.
The reptile section is quite ok and provide much welcomed shelter from the relentless rain. The ride around the zoo is really cheap too.

Cons
It was rainy that day so that didn't help with the experience. There wasn't much shelter at all. The penguins look sad and all the animals look half-drown. Very weird to place tropical bears right after penguin. While the bear areas look acceptable for the bears, the place where the visitors view the bear look to be more suitable for polar bear (all white).

Most disappointing was that I can't see any pandas AT all. I understand the mother and young panda cub will only be shown in Jan 2014. I was hoping to see at least the father but no such luck. The panda enclosure was totally close. There was 2 workers there explaining but they have serious signages issue

“A good zoo to visit if that's your thing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

A good day trip if you're into zoos. Wide range of exhibits although the place ios quite spread out. MRT line stops right at the entrance.
