    Let me start by saying that I am not an avid animal rights but animals in conditions so pitiful there can be! The only required decently are giant pandas. Then the park itself is beautiful!

    The coolest Zoo! Come to the discovery and left when it was getting dark, and before the family cat have never reached, just couldn't! Separately, visit the pandas, and entrance fee (in addition to the main ticket). Dine on the territory of the Zoo can be, many places-and not very expensive.

    Although I am mostly against zoos, this one was not that bad! I don't get why people say this zoo is terrible, it's actually decent. All the animals seemed happy in their enclosures. The Australian sector, however, was a different story. The cages were filled with feces, and it was dusty and had not been cleaned in a long time. The gift shops were nice though, as the prices were reasonable and the items cute. I got myself a little panda toothbrush! :D

    Very nice zoo with pandas. Entrance fee quite cheap (~3-5 €/$). Small extra fee for pandas. The zoo is big enough to spend a whole day here.

    I'm convinced all positive reviews were posted by employees. This place is a whole new level of horrific. The elephants are completely immobile. They stretch their trunks desperately trying to touch each other, but can't. I mean....this place is one of the most horrific zoos in all the world. Do a quick google search and see for yourself the retched conditions these animals are forced to live.

    World class zoo. Must go! Best value for all family. Must spend one whole day here. Don't miss to visit Panda house.

    Great zoo. Well kept animals. Pandas are just a few and gets quite crowded there.
