“Nice place to have a walk but definitely not to see healthy animals!”

Zoo and Botanical Gardens
Reviewed August 11, 2014

As many attractions around the world, this place could a fantastic gateway with wonderful gardens, and great picnic places... but unfortunately the "zoo" concept does not work... animals are not in a very good shape, you can see old syringes on the floor of the crocodile's cage... old fishes stinking... a bit sad.

I would steer clear of the zoo if you are an animal lover. This place could be very upsetting to some seeing how the animals are kept. I'm pretty sure the fluffy bunnys weren't in with the snakes to keep them company if you know what I mean. Really nice, well kept gardens though.

We were a tad apprehensive about visiting and whilst some of the enclosures are a tad old fashioned, the animals all appeared to be in good condition and well fed. We spent a couple of hours here and enjoyed the walk around the Zoo & Gardens.

We love going to the zoo but found this zoo a bit sad and depressing. The animals looked bored and some lay a little too still for my liking ?!?! It's cheap to enter and there are lots of animals - including a large number of rats. If you aren't in HCMC for long maybe do something else instead?

The zoo had loads of animals and has potential. It's very busy inside. The animal facilities can be largely improved. The animals look sad, especially the elephants.
