  • Surprisingly very good Zoo. There were very few visitors, calmly walked, looked at the animals, everything was very interesting.

  • This is an extremely fun place both for children and adults alike. One gets to see a variaty of animals and at times get a very close encounter. The aquarium is a must visit. Information would recommend dedicating four hours. From our personal experience (two families with 5 children ages 2 to 12), it would be great if you can have some more time there. We spent just about six hours and had to make a shortcut so we can spend an hour and a half in the aquarium.
  • Very lovely zoo, not so huge as I expected but still big enough. You can see many workers busy with their job unlike in other zoos. Animals look well fed and taken care of. There are a lot of species to see and some of the animals you can see so close that you get a tempting feeling to touch them :)
