Spent a morning here walking around with my colleague and I found the variety of animals to be very good. The Pandas were my top hit but so many others to see as well.

Huge zoo park, lots to see. You can easily spend the whole day here. However note that many of the enclosures shut around 3:30, so I would recommend going fairly early. The animals mostly have plenty of space, some unusual species, I especially liked the...More
