A nice place that can bring children come visit. But need to bring cap or umbrella because it really hot. The entrance ticket very cheap.

This is a nice place to visit when you have the free time. Kids love to watch the animals in the zoo. It is also good for all ages of people. This is one of the oldest zoo in the country. It is situated in the heart of Johor Bahru. It is near to the Royal Museum. Can stroll around,... More

There are a few older cages in this zoo which could do with some renovation and the zoo is quite small, good for a maximum of 2 hours. The animals do look healthy however and there are a good variety for a small zoo. At less than a dollar to enter who could complain. Worthwhile if you have time in... More

It is a place you can visit if you have free time. 2 Malaysia Ringgit for the entrance fee and 1 Malaysia Ringgit for children. Some animals are quite smelly but it is a good place for budget trip!

There were not much of animals you can see here. They didn't maintain well the place as some of the animals looking very sick and thin. No activities you can do there except taking pictures. However since the entrance fee is just RM2, it is fine though.

The zoo can be upgraded and should be maintained and well-kept. The zoo has gorillas and brown bears which attracted me the most.

Johor Zoo is a pretty sad excuse for a zoo. It's small and it doesn't have too many attractions. They have recently renovated the zoo and brightened it up but it's not that big of an improvement. However, if you're looking for a cheap way to kill some time especially if you have young kids, then by all means, go... More

The place was very cheap (maybe around MYR 6) and enjoyable according to the price. Tiger, Lion, Bear, Crocodile, and etc etc.. The place isn't that big though, it's quite enjoyable if bringing kids. And Pony ride also available!
