  • Just as many came here because of the pandas. I think a day is not enough to make it work around) while looking for pandas watched birds, monkeys, Lions, wolves. Pandas certainly lazy milahi, practically not responsive to the people. Big minus the lack of normal Zoo on site cafe, don't go here hungry)))

  • But time and could only pandas on the final. Panda on display or in the summer, but lively souvenir stuffed Panda had a limp and was more expensive than the city because few people are buying.

  • While in Beijing for work I thought I'd go and check out the Pandas. For the nations capital's zoo it was really disappointing. The 'Panda House' was very average also, bizarre considering its their n...  more »

  • 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.
