    Bring an umbrella when you visit Zoo Taiping as Taiping is the wettest town in Peninsular Malaysia, so expect rainfall throughout the year. Read more

    Night Safari is RM16 per entrance for adult. Suggest to walk instead of taking the tram. You'll see more things and can play 'find the creatures' when they decide to play hide & seek with you ;)

    Try Night Safari. Nocturnal animals are really active. And some you could only see at night

    DO NOT take the god damn tram. It sucks and a waste of money. Walk through the zoo, you will appreciate more of life floral and fauna.

    The mini train took about 30 minutes to the final destination. You are encouraged to take a ride first before walk by yourself. The kiosk beside the queuing line is expensive.

    Rm16 for night safari with tramp rides, the tramp driver cracks funny jokes while introducing the animals!

    Badly maintained. Grass not trimmed, exhibit glass is not cleaned. Foliages are not trimmed and cleaned up if it has fallen over.

  • purpi3 m.

    RM16 for day, RM20 for night safari, but not like the one in A Famosa where you get to see the animals in wild. Animals are not active not sure if it's because of the rainy gloomy weather.

    Giraffe the best ;)

    It's not the best zoo, but better run for animals rather than being caged in gates they are more free. Skip the useless tram because the guides mumbles like an auctioneer, have a nice walk under trees

    Az Rabi · June 22, 2014
  • Munir G.

    Badly maintained, the animals are pity. Look at the picture attached and look at the pool, what do you think? A green color pool??
