Although some of the pens were a little small, the animals looked healthy and happy. There was plenty to see and you could get up close to many amazing animals that you never would back in the uk such as hippos and crocodiles. The more...More

This zoo cannot provide enough space for the animals, imagine the amount of space animals would have in the wild, especially for those species, such as tigers and lions. Those species roam larger distances in their natural habitat. Also, crocodile cage. 100% this place is...More

Zoo is already a concept which can be questioned. Is it reasonable to keep animals in cage ? But beyond this ethical matter, there is reality. And Yangon zoological gardens is a shame, an horrible example of what human being is able to do. White...More

I am not a fan of zoo’s in general but this place needs to be shut down. The animals are being treated with zero respect for their well being. Dirty, smelly, small and dark enclosures. They had no room and looked so depressed just pacing...More

Usually I feel guilty visiting zoos, however we decided to visit whilst wandering around Yangon. I really wish we hadn’t. I found it incredibly depressing and left feeling utterly heartbroken. The animals are living in awful conditions and it is so sad to see. The...More

To my mind, the animals were not kept in good condition, and proper care and conditions were not in force. Their diet was poor, and those people looking after these animals were far from professionals . It can be most upsetting to witness their poor...More

Not a zoo fan if it’s not for conservation but felt the need to visit a zoo in SEA. If you’re easily upset by seeing animals in horrid conditions then please don’t go. I had tears in my eyes pretty much all the way around....More

Three hours is more than enough to explore what the zoo offers; as such, you may not even need to pack any food, especially if you make it a point to grab a bite before heading over. I don't remember seeing anything... More

Yes. There are Gibbon monkeys at the Yangon Zoo. And they are incredibly vocal and loud. But don't get close to the cage, trying to take a picture of them! One of the little thieves might snatch your camera or cellphone. I... More
