This zoo is a sad, sad place. Animals are in very bad shape, the smell is unbearable, and the layout is terrible if you have a stroller. Not recommended.

It is a typical zoo but the location is great for families. There is a Jinju land above which is a amusement park for kids. The zoo is not that big either but it is enough to enjoy~!

It's been several years since I've been, but I'm sure it hasn't changed much. The place is small, the cages are small, the animals unhappy, the Koreans annoying (throwing things at the animals) and the experience sad. They had a lion and a dog living together. I'm not joking. Avoid it and continue on up the hill to the lookout... More

I agree with mother comments about this zoo. Some of the animals are in cages far too small. I did get the impression that there is some work in progress with the near completion of a new large cat compound. It could be an amazing zoo, but I came away deeply affected that some of the animals whilst cared for... More

First, let me set the scene before I give my review. A lone traveler walks down the trail along the street on a mountain side, fog clinging even after morning… The heat and humidity is suffocating. A worker from the hotel walks by, motioning vigorously. Turns out, there are snakes in the grass. The zoo is straight ahead from the... More
