The zoo is not a welcoming place to tourists. Firstly, the parking is limited, hilly and steep and we have to pay for it though we are paying for the entrance ticket. The only way a wheelchair-bound disabled/baby stroller wants to go from their car to the zoo entrance is by strolling at the roadside, where the traffic is busy. No protection route or blockage for strollers and wheelchairs. The walkway is specifically for, er.. walking people only where they only provide stairs without ramp. There is only one steep ramp is visible, at the ticket counter.
The zoo is like a real bush jungle. The plants were not maintained properly. There are a few "under maintenance" toilets There are a few empty cages. The animal varieties are decent and interesting, but access for wheel bounded people are terrible, similar to the parking area.
The moment we arrived, we quickly went for the train stop. We really require the train because we brought 2 toddlers and a baby. Sadly the signboard wrote that the train is not operating "due to breakdown OR some faulty. We will inform you once it is operable". Luckily we brought the stroller. But after spending almost two hours walking my children became really tired, a train passed by. Then followed by another one 10 minutes later. How frustrated my kids were!
They really wanted to have the ride.
But it's a blessing in disguise. My kids were able to have a closer view at the animals and experience how the animals habits in their cages longer compared to riding the train. But alas, there was no short path in the zoo and we have to walk around the whole route.
We were glad we can attend the bird show on time. If not, it will be a wasteful and tiring evening for us. The show have some qualities showmanship and the way they presented the show was excellent. Congratulations anyway.
