The pandas were the big draw for me, although I'm not sure their enclosures were great. I don't know how far they travel in the wild - they were eating when we arrived and sleeping when we left. The video feed for the babies wasn't working. The planting is beautiful everywhere, but then you notice the rats. Especially in the... More

First the highlights: 1 Panda exhibit well done 2. Gardens pretty and well maintained. Low lights So sad and depressing. Reminds me of zoos of the 1950's. Small enclosures for most of the other animals and they did now look well cared for. Seeing beautiful animals in small enclosures and cages is not my idea of a zoo but rather... More

We found it disturbing. China needs to up its game when it comes to caring for animals. Big time. Dirty, small enclosures. Animals looked sad bored. Hated it!!

What a terrific zoo. We could have spent all day just watching the giant pandas. There was a two year old panda having a blast wrestling with a car tire on a rope. Very nice place to visit.

The zoo is laid out beautifully. It was really fascinating to see the pandas. It was lunchtime we we went and each in its own area sat and munched their was through the bamboo and ignored the massive crowds around them.
