The area is not too hot because of many of trees. Many wild animals and various species. Can feed animals and cheap prices. Good workers provide cooperation.

Price was OK with Malaysia ID. Children will definitely happy to see the animal. Maintenance was poor, animal was not active. Do not compare if you like to enjoy. Treat as family gathering.
