We took the time to visit the Yangon Zoo, although Zoo's are not the best places to keep most animals and found it most enjoyable. There are a good number of animal's that I have not seen in African and European Zoo's. There are a number of food venders if you get peckish. This site is wheelchair friendly

We went there on the way to the Pagoda thinking it would be a nice walk, but the animals are living in terrible conditions, concrete cells, alone and the cages are so small. Felt awful for them, the zoo should be shut down if they treat the animals like this

One of the saddest places in Yangon. Tourists encouraged to buy five sticks of sugar cane to feed the skinny elephants. Mountain bears panting in lowland Yangon clearly uncomfortable. Tigers pacing iin frustration.

As an animal enthusiast, I visited there on my last day in Myanmar and last day of the year. the animals are put in a cement enclosure all around, does not look natural or happy. Some animals can't even be seen in the enclosure. Was hoping to see several Myanmar native species such as the Burmese Roofed Turtle but disappointingly... More

Had a few hours to spare on my last day so headed here. Bit of a let down. Only about $3 (Aus) entry and a decent selection of animals. However the place was a bit run down, as were many of the animals. White tigers looked "threadbare" and bored as they chewed on their raw chickens, and two of the... More

We regretted paying the entrance fee, this place needs to be shut down. the animals were in very tiny, cement enclosures. Most of them looked sick - the red panda was losing his fur in clumps and looked like he had been rubbing his own poo in it. There were two white tigers in separate, very small, concrete pens and...

Visited in December and it was the worst zoo I have visited. I always hope that when I visit these places that my entrance fee will help the Animals but it needs a lot spending on it too bring it anywhere near to other Zoo's.

You can get very close to many of the animals. They sell bamboo cane for 1000 to feed 5 small canes. The elephants really like the cane and are very gentle. The zoo has 3 white tigers and two white rhinos.

We went to the zoo without much expectation and were impressed by its size and number of animals. I have to agree with others that the zoo's overall condition is poor but I guess that's what's left of once a great zoo if you don't spend enough money on maintenance. I would anyway recommend to go there.
