Ok, that is the write up by other websites for those of you who would like to visit the zoo, and well, you can see some pretty nice animals around... but if you ask me for my two cents worth, hmm.. I must admit I am disappointed by a lot of things ,... example... the shops which sell cheap quality stuff (stuff you can get in the night market , some shop or such) but for a higher price instead of really decent quality Zoo Negara souvenirs, like postcards, t shirts, etc...
The beautiful lake is not so beautiful and seems murky. The children's play land is quite sad (if one wants to compare with the Singapore Zoo , or maybe just even the Malacca Zoo, KL Butterfly Park or KL Bird Park)... but well, there are plenty of room for improvement and hopefully they will be much better in the future because there are expansions and such going on, as observed. Hoping for the best...
