Nothing much to see

Booked a grab taxi from city area, disappointed with the zoo. Nothing much to see and the animals looks really sad, only 2 or 3 animals per enclosure.

After the parking confusion, we bought the tickets for the zoo and went to the entrance. There we were denied to bring in baby food for our baby - ridiculous!!! At first I thought it may be some kind of strict policy so the animals are not fed human food, but any of the food you buy inside can be... More

Reach the zoo on Sunday, there are not much vehicles compared to previews visit. Once inside, only few travelers walking around and most of the animals are either gone or tired continue sleeping.

Most of the animal is old. Its not like last time. Bring your kids to bird park rather than going this zoo.

Want to go to malacca zoo? what do you need? You need a lot of time. This is the biggest zoo that ive been to. This kind of zoo you also need stamina. For food & beverages you can buy it in the zoo canteen. Kinda expensive but, you can't bring outside food. Zoo Malacca, a must go places.

I never put high expectation. For me, it is okay because my family do not have other place to go to fill in our leisure time. As long as the kids are happy. Need to be reminded, the journey in the zoo may takes 3-4 km. So, if you come with small kids or old folks, it's better to take... More
