“If you've never seen Panda..”
Reviewed 1 December 2013

Pandas are not in all the zoos in the world. So for that reason only, if you've never seen Panda in person due to the zoos in your country not having one, then that is a reason alone enough to visit. Pandas are charming animals and getting to see them up close is obviously enjoyable experience. With that being said, it's really not much more than a zoo, and not really a great zoo. I saw them when they were inside the dorm, and the surrounding wasn't really ideal. Huge window put in between us and Pandas made it difficult to take their pictures as well. Its surrounding are small and not well decorated either. I expected more. But again, if you've never met a Panda and you're in Macau, why not?

“Don't miss a visit to the Panda Pavilion!”
Reviewed 14 November 2013

We love visiting the Pandas in Macau. The Pavillion is not easy to get to/from, but there are buses that stop close by. Taxis will go there, but after your visit, it's very, very hard to get a taxi. Buses are much more reliable.
The pavilion is similar to most other panda pavilions, but the best part is the cost of admission - very cheap indeed. Tickets cost $10 each and any seniors (not just Macau residents) 65 and over are admitted free of charge. (In HK, you have to pay to go into Ocean Park to see the pandas - $320 per adult! Only HK residents qualify for free senior citizen tickets.)
The other caged animals and birds near the pandas are living in dreadful conditions. Such a contrast to the pandas' multimillion dollar habitat. But I noticed some construction taking place, so maybe there will be some improvement. My excellent rating is for the Panda Pavilion. The animal/bird cages would get a "Terrible" rating from me.
(Prices quoted above are Macau/HK dollars.)

“Simply awesome”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

For the equivalent of $1.50 US entry fee, you get to spend up to an hour watching two three-year old pandas feed themselves and play in their indoor pavillion. Really a nice set up for both visitors and pandas alike. There are other attractions, like an ostrich, some monkeys, two black swan and some flamingos, but the Pandas are the reason for going to this Zoo. Timing important though. They close mondays, and there is no viewing between 12 and 1 or 1 and 2, i can't quite remember, so the pandas can rest. And the zoo closes at 5 pm. Also, getting there is not easy. Just take a cab, from the cotai strip area, it is less than $4 US i think. Also, betting back can be a problem -- no cabs were readily available so we took the local bus back to the strip for less $1. Plan about two hours minimum, maybe three if you are taking the bus back.

“If you like Pandas ....”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

It is a small park at the south of island. Entrance is free, but you must pay for visiting of panda.
Also you can see pink flamingos.
You can see pandas, panda's statues and you can learn all about pandas and you can buy panda's souvenirs.
