This is supposed to be a good family holiday going place but due to bad maintenance, the animals look tired, some of the cages are empty and rusting. It's sad to see the quality of zoo service is slowly going downhill.

Came for both day & night visits - same no different. Using the tram instead of walking around the zoo. There were quite a number of animals but it's smaller compared to other zoos in Malaysia.

The price is not expensive compare to Zoo Negara. However, this Zoo Taiping is not well manage for small animals. Some cages are too dark and cannot see anything. Bigger animal like elephants, tigers and giraffes have better view.

Many of the animal habitats are not well maintained although the animals seems to be well fed. Maybe the weather was very hot when we visited, most of the animals didn't seem to be energetic.

I think the fee is RM17 for the daytime and RM20 for the night safari. I went with children so just ensure they eat at certain spots and not open any food in sight of the monekys and you should be fine. If you are staying... More
