The zoo was really unimpressive because firstly it is badly maintained and secondly the animals didn't always look very happy. We found that many of the enclosures were very small and the water in them was really dirty. Furthermore the zoo really stinks, I mean...More

I had a great time looking around at different animals. Having to enter the panda conservation center was amazing (despite the hot weather, phew!). The pandas were just seen relaxing and having a good time.

Great little zoo with beautiful gardens. The baby pandas where worth the big line up to go in and see them. Quite expensive but enjoyed it.

Although it's about 20 minutes by taxi from the center of the city, this small zoo delivers in every respect. Definitely use your KL Transit card to get a discount. The panda pavillion is quite impressive and there is plenty of beautiful grounds to explore...More

When I first look through the reviews, it mentioned that the animals looked sad and bored but how "fun" can these wild animals look in a confined space??? It does look slightly run down but still manageable, there are few spots you could rest in...More

Plan to spend minimum 3-4 hours to get your money's worth. Good visit for the family and be prepared to pay for everything once inside the zoo.
