Poor management in all aspects. The animals are completely abused by the visitors who demonstrated that their new found opulence rarely is supported by civilized behavior and educated manners. People were spitting, throwing stones, swearing at the animals. Parents placing their children on the edge...More

This zoo is very clean and easy to navigate. It's not a big place, but the conditions for the animals were well maintained. The highlight for me was seeing the pandas. At some zoos, it's impossible to see them without dozens or hundreds of people...More

This was the saddest, most horrible zoo I have ever visited. The cages were small, the animals were lethargic and constantly harassed by visitors. Animals could be seen begging for food as they were pelted with trash and rocks by sightseers. I do not recommend...More

Lots of animals from all over the planet, even some kangaroos from Australia. Most animals were lethargic.

As an European, I barely liked it. The size of the enclosures were really small. Barely green for the animals and looked like a bunker. The park is better than most animal enclosures. Two dogs in a small enclosure of 20 square meters, a bear...More
