I went here with the purpose of checking the aquarium rather then the zoo (but I have to go through the zoo to get to the aquarium) because it has the longest under water tunnel in the world. Aquarium wasn't bad, but the zoo gave...More

the zoo itself is huge in a very convenient location. however its pretty poorly managed. doesn't seem they take good care of the animals, very little animals for such a big place. go to the night safari instead.
