I have been to this Zoo 3 years ago and then it looked in bad shape .
Now visiting again this is one of the saddest things I have seen in my life.
The monkeys are fighting the rats , dead rats everywhere.
Likened to old Soviet Union zoo where the animals are chained up, forced into small enclosures, and look truly unhappy.
Saw the staff lead an elephant was was previously chained to a fence so people could pet and feed it, then be lead on a...More
In general zoo is good but the staff is something else, they are wonderful Especially a young lady called Lay Mon Htwe, she is very helpful, kind, friendly and amazing. She did me a huge favor that i will never forget. I wont hesitate to...More
My partner and I went into the zoo thinking it was more of a botanical garden (our own fault for not researching). Completely and utterly heart-shattering. The animals are completely neglected and forgotten about. There are no keepers anywhere and also little information about the...More
If no one went to zoos l expect animals would starve. Of course if no one went, they might not exist at all, but at what cost to animals already there? The animals appear well fed. It is a zoo mostly of the olden days....More
Although very sad for the imprisoned animals, I really much enjoyed going there 3 times. Beside the tigres and lions, the animals are pretty happy and the elephants are gorgeous. Visit this historical zoo if you can !
to me, some animal enclosures are not safe for the kids unless you hold their hands; especially Hippo and bear enclosures. Fences are too low for kids can climb or slip through. Advise to buy tram tickets at entrance so that you do not need...More
The place was really nice. I have went there for exactly 17 times and it hasn´t changed a bit. I love this place and all of it´s cute animals. I highly recommend this place to try for a visit. YOU WILL LOVE IT.

Hi Michael! I am sorry, but I cannot answer the question of opening times during holidays, you might want to ask your hotel about it. The zoo is normally open from Monday to Sunday 8 am to 6 pm. There are no restaurants as such inside the zoo, only some food stands. I went on a very rainy day and the stands were closed. I would recommend to buy food and drink in advance and eat it there if you have the stomach to do so. There are benches all around the zoo. I spent over one hour and saw most of the zoo, but I did not spend much time in each cage. It is interesting to see the local species but it is very sad and dirty. The conditions are very poor and the smells are bad.
Yes. There are Gibbon monkeys at the Yangon Zoo. And they are incredibly vocal and loud. But don't get close to the cage, trying to take a picture of them! One of the little thieves might snatch your camera or cellphone. I... More
Yes. There are Gibbon monkeys at the Yangon Zoo. And they are incredibly vocal and loud. But don't get close to the cage, trying to take a picture of them! One of the little thieves might snatch your camera or cellphone. I took a group of Burmese young people and a young lady lost her phone. The monkey quickly dissected it like peeling an orange and tried to eat the battery.
