For a small town, it's a very good zoo with a good collection of wildlife. Some cages are not so viewer friendly but others are not too bad. Free tram but speakers need work as the one we rode on didn't work and we couldn't hear the driver.

If you are a nature & animals lover then Taiping Zoo is just the place to visit. Is not too big an area ( to cover ) not too small ( to bore you ), suffice to say with what they have is good enough for you to enjoy a half a day walking & seeing the animals/birds etc there.... More

The title suggest I am not particular impressed but that is not really the point. The Taiping Zoo is certainly worth a visit, even if in your hometown you have a good zoo. Over the years the zoo has implemented ,many ideas to make the life of the animals as pleasant as possible in a kind of natural environment and... More

People are so busy to visit the zoo during daylight trip. The parents are working from 8-6pm. Six days a week. They only have one day to rest before going back to work the next Monday. Six days a week? Yes. So, come visit Taiping Zoo & Night Safari. Totally new experience, no to mention the cooler and more relaxed... More

Alot of mosquito, the plant inside is not well maintained very hard to find the road inside, I strongly suggest their management renew the signboard inside. With the price of RM 17 is not a great deal.

This place is a must to visit when you are in Taiping. Zoo Taiping is a popular spot among the locals and foreigners. They offer night safari as well. We visited the zoo at night upon arrival and the next day on day time. Totally different atmosphere and experience to visit the animals at night during their most active time.... More

Really great experience with my family. First time for night safari tour. Good so far because many animals are active during the dark. Will definitely recommend to friends. But please add up your facilities especially food at night. Just 1 shop open.

I use to go here about 15 years ago and it was shocking to see how badly maintain it was when I came here last week during Hari Raya. Some cages were left with trees and grass growing rapidly without being cut down. The pond where they put their animals were also too dirty and smelly. Don't get me wrong,... More

Needs improvement, the tow truck uses diesel which should be running on electricity to reduce emissions. Not enough of lights during the passage and on the buggy. Safety precautions must be adhered to those who are with kids. Could have been better.
