“Half day family fun with the pandas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2012

Coloane is the largest outlying island in Macau and Seac Pai Van Park is located there. It takes about 30 minutes to drive from the city centre to here. There are lots of things to do here. Before you start, you should buy a "Passport" from the Souvenir Shop and stamped on the passport as indicated. When you have collected all the stamps, you are entitled to a free gift.

The Giant Panada Pavilion was built in 2010 and has an area of 3000 sq m. It is the home of two pandas named "Kai Kai" and "Xin Xin", which means "happiness" in Chinese.

After you visited the Pavilion, you could head towards the large walkin aviary where you could see peacocks, pheasants, and other colourful species. There is also a small zoo, flowerbeds ornaments, children's playgrounds, a garden of native medicinal plants and the small but attractive Museum of Nature and Agriculture.

If you are tired, you could just sit down and enjoy a free DIY handicraft lesson and you could take your handmade craft home as souvenir.

“The park is just ok but the Panda Pavilion on its grounds is a very good attraction”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

The feature attraction at the Seac Pai Van Park is the Giant Panda Pavilion which is a genuinely unique experience to see two adorable creatures, Xin Xin and Kai Kai for just MOP10 per person.

In addition to the panda experience, at the Seac Pai Van Park you can also see several monkey species, ostriches, peacocks, a South American toucan and a deer species we were not familiar with. There is also a panda info. center, a souvenir shop, koy pond and a few children play areas at Seac Pai Van Park. There is an aviary but its quite a poor visit so we'd skip this one.

Overall, we feel this park on its own is not worth visiting in Macau. However the Panda Pavilion is a very good attraction, especially if you've children. If you do decide to visit on this basis, then you can spend an extra 20 minutes or so seeing the rest of the park, that is probably good enough.

“Macau can do better than that”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2011

This park is adjacent to the Macau Panda Pavilion, but has little to recommend it. There are 6 cages of monkeys and an ostrich coral and another 6 cages with birds and a deer. Although the cages were clean, they are just cement blacks with chain link fencing. Three of the six cages have a solitary monkey in it, and as monkeys are very social animals this makes for a very sad sight. The birds are in a similar situation. The cages are quite barren and provide no mental stimulation for these bored, sad animals. The park also contains a walk through bird aviary, however it is closed for the foreseeable future. There is a medical garden and an exotic garden, which are pathetic patches of land with little info and less than thriving foliage. The Panda information center is supposed to be an interactive multimedia educational experience, but most of it was not functioning now that the exhibit has been open for a while. There is a playground for small children that seemed to be very busy. Also at the park is a very small, nicely presented agricultural museum, however the artifact signage is only in Portuguese and Chinese. Macau has enough money to create a much nicer, more professional park with a good botanical, zoological and educational facilities rather than this motley collection of attractions.

“Fine park, drab access”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2011

The park is easy to reach by walking from Coloane village; the walk along the highway is not long enough to be deadly boring. The park is a good and clean mountain park with a single driveway going up the hill and many paved steps/trails branching from it. At the moment the Concordia Industrial Park on the reclaimed land down below is making such a racket, that no matter how far you go into the park the banging and screeching never fades. Judging by the ginormous scale of the development it's not going to be over any time soon. The bus stop right opposite the A-Ma arch is convenient for taking bus 21A back to Taipa and downtown Macao (or arriving at the park, I suppose).
