  • It's reasonably big, a lot of section is closed, no more train services, no elephant ride, need really good modification to attract tourist a like. The show still bring a good memories to kids, something you need to see, feeding time is throughout the day. Suggest about 2 1/2hour, time between 10 to 1130am or 2pm to 430pm to cover the zoo. Its more than adequate and not busy. If you want to catch more feeding time than suggest the morning trip. Animal variety 2 star Activities in park 1 star Show 2 star Overall 3 star
