Although very sad for the imprisoned animals, I really much enjoyed going there 3 times. Beside the tigres and lions, the animals are pretty happy and the elephants are gorgeous. Visit this historical zoo if you can !

to me, some animal enclosures are not safe for the kids unless you hold their hands; especially Hippo and bear enclosures. Fences are too low for kids can climb or slip through. Advise to buy tram tickets at entrance so that you do not need...More

It's what you might expect from a zoo in Yangon. It's kind of sad and depressing. The enclosures are run down and a bit dirty. Animals looked well fed, but a bit depressed. On the plus side we were able to feed the elephants and...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

Entrance was 2,500 kyat per person for "Foreigner Adults". The place was damp and dark. The cages were badly maintained and the animals looked sad.

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

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
