“As close to nature”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Well maintained. Can get very crowded on weekends.. School trips.

Great place for family outing. Several outlets for food and souvenirs.

For a small price you can hop on the tram.. Better on foot tho.

“Waste of money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

OMG. the entrance fee so expensive yet animal in sorry state. The animal kept in poor condition & very thin. Some of the animals even cant walk properly. The enclosure not well kept & unkept condition. The grasses grow so wildly until block the view of animal. No proper dining place or place to eat. Its is our National Zoo. Shame

“Overpriced and not much to see”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Not worth the money. Zoo uses different prices for malays (30rm) and foreigners (50rm). Show was boring and over-all experience was very bad. With the same price you can see much better zoos in other countries.
