Visit the famous panda breeding center and see more than 250 species of animals at Chengdu Zoo. As one of the biggest zoos in China, it covers around 18 hectares (44.5 acres) of land, where the resident critters include macaws, tigers, lions, endangered monkeys, and various reptiles and birds. The halls, houses, ponds, and fenced mounds where the animals live spread between trees and flowers. Don't miss the specially designed homes for pandas, surrounded by bamboo. Educational attractions will entertain children, and the zoo also includes an eating area. Note that some visitors have commented on less-than-ideal conditions for the animals; check the latest reviews before you go if this is likely to upset. Using our world travel planner, Chengdu attractions like Chengdu Zoo can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • A Zoo on the outskirts of Chengdu city. Noto iron (iii) line is stretched and opened "Zoo station right beside the Park, came in handy. So there is a lot of statues from station Zoo will be fun. Many rare animals inhabit the province of Sichuan are relatively empty compared to, Beijing Zoo, but it has been bred. Panda garden in here is a little bit ahead (free shuttle bus from the iron Zoo station: station) to Chengdu city Okuma cat breeding base, so if the main is the Panda there better (However, pandas Chengdu city Okuma cat traditional education base project is here)

  • I was in Chengdu for business, but you can't visit Chengdu and skip the famous Chengdu zoo. It has it all, and of course a bunch of pandas.  more »
  • Doesn't look like a zoo, the pandas have much space all around, small forests surround the Park.

  • Nice pandas, didn't seen however the red one
  • Perfect place to see Panda... however a bit expensive..
  • Chengdu Zoo...a horror, especially for the animals.
  • You can see the snub-nosed called journey to the model. Near the Metro station good transport links.

Where to stay in Chengdu

The vast majority of visitors to Chengdu look for their accommodations along Tianfu Avenue, the main arterial road that cuts the southern district of the modern city in two. Upmarket and standard hotels can be found along the road and its surrounding side streets, overlooking pleasant plazas and parks, or the river that snakes around to the east. Guesthouses and hostels throughout the south provide a welcome range of budget accommodations, but heading to the more built-up and residential northern area will reveal a greater amount of particularly cost-effective options.
