Make a quick stop at Surabaya's Zoo to see over 3,500 animals, representing almost 200 species. This zoo shelters rare lions, tigers, and Indonesia's own komodo dragons, but the overcrowded cages, often-squalid conditions, and a slew of animal deaths allegedly caused by neglect make a negative impression on many visitors.

I love to see this place since I was a kid. This place has recently managed by new team, providing a better animal management and some new entertainment inside. It used to be left behind, but Surabaya govt has provided a great stuff to develop its current attraction.
The place is huge and from reading the earlier reviews i was hoping for a typical asian zoo kind of place but it was somewhat a very nice experience. Yes the enclosures are a little bit small for some of the animals but the animals do look you somewhat healthy though not all. The only downside was looking at the sea turtles in a small pond with moss everywhere which was a little bit disheartening. The place is huge so you'd need a good plan to cover all as there are no exact directions or route which you can follow. The ticket price was 15,000 rupiahs per adult which was decent.
