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

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

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

Terrible place, where the animals are kept in tiny enclosures. Most of them in individual closures so that the animals never have contact with any other animals. Most of the animals looked in bad condition and it broke my heart walking round. Subsequently I never...More

Yangon Zoo is located in the middle of the city surrounded by the greens of Kandawgyi Lake. They do have quite a number of animals here BUT the condition of the zoo is average at best and the animals look lethargic and hungry too. More...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
