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.

  • Admission: Adult ticket 20 yuan/person, buy electronic ticket to sweep the admission is very convenient. Transportation: Can arrive by subway, the nearby beer and skittles, very convenient. Tourist: Compared to the panda base, there are really fewer tourists here, and it's much easier to walk. Animal: Species rich, Monkey Panda hippo Rhino Giraffe Elephant Anything, basically can think of animals here all have. The zoo itself is quite large, and it takes hours to walk and stop. The signage in the park is also clear and occasionally requires consultation with the staff. May be a long time, the whole garden is a bit shabby, the animals are not particularly clean, although there are prompt language, but often there will be throwing food phenomenon.

  • Clean well maintained zoo, the animals is cute and well feed. They are roams freely. The ticket price is reasonable. There are clean restroom and tasty restaurants. The staff on-site is helpful and friendly. This place is worth visit. Fun for kids and adults. Crowded on weekends. 100% recomended.
  • Nice place, huge variety of animals. Minus because the cages and areas for the animals look too small for them..
  • A very interesting zoo with many animals including panda. Very suitable for family with kids.
  • I meant to go to the Panda Zoo and ended up here. Very depressing old style zoo not worthy of support.
  • Entrance fee is cheap and can see Panda
