I went on weekdays so the place was not crowded. Had a good time strolling around with my family. There are lots of animals and they all look well taken cared of. There are decent animal show as well at noon. Good place for recreational activity for families!
The zoo looks much better now than when i last visited more than 10 years ago. It's 'greener' and animals have more space to roam around. It was not crowded on weekday. Good place to bring the kids. Loved the panda and the white bengal tiger the most.
I've been to quite a number of zoos in my lifetime, but few have left me feeling so empty inside upon leaving. This zoo is big big. There are many exhibits with various exotic animals roving about. I'd say the main attractions in the National Zoo are the tigers, lions and the 3 pandas. The lions and tigers are a depressing sight. They look tired and sickly. If animals have feelings anything like humans do, I'd say that they are depressed. They laze around all day in their tiny enclosures for our enjoyment, so it isn't a surprise. The pandas however, are having the time of their lives. They sleep and eat and enjoy the air conditioning and all the care that they deserve as Chinese emissaries. All in all, pretty depressing.
I think the zoo is rather poorly maintained. Food stores and choices are so limited. The only place that's really well maintained is Giant Panda's house. It's clean and air-conditioned with nice environment.. We didn't manage to visit the penguin house because of heavy rain, not sure how it's.
A very good place to visit. Full of natural beauty.. lots of animals. A very good place for those who have kids. The animals were usually lazy, giving people the feeling as if they are sufficiently given their nutrition. But one cannot say it with certainty.. Panda was treated with more care as it belongs to some elite class among animals.. the enclosures for other animals wasn't that properly taken care of.. The ticket was a bit too over priced for foreigners... 82RM is a bit too much according to the experience one may have... Overall the place is good and one can surely visit....
