  • This is a large city zoo that is nicely laid out and well kept. The only reason we went was to see the Pandas! We saw about 15 of them of all ages. The young ones are funny to watch and I could have s...  more »
  • We were there with an organized tour, we visited the zoo in the morning. We came specially for the pandas and could make nice pictures. But some mixed feelings, the small area where the animals were not the outdated cages and gave me a really good feeling.

  • Very nice for pandas and other animals. Some animals seem stressed though. Dinosaur world is quaint and great for younger kids. Lots of statuary
  • Worst zoo experience I’ve ever had in my life. Do not go to this zoo unless you are comfortable with seeing animals distressed, alone, and treated badly by other visitors. Chongqing Zoo is supposedly an important place for the research and protection of immigrant animals but this is clearly a sham. Upon arrival, the zoo looked accomodating and clean, there were no litter on the gardens and the trees and grass were well maintained. However when ventured further, it becomes apparent that everything and anything good about the zoo ends when animals are in sight. The animals looked miserable and very clearly uncomfortable as many - such as the elephant, bear, and zebra were left on their own. These animals had no accompanying partner but were instead, left to be viewed by loud, jeering spectators on their own. It was becoming very obvious that although the zoo itself was kept clean and well cared for, this stopped when it came to the animals. Not one zoo keeper was in sight during my walk around the zoo; there were no keepers there to stop the visitors pouring a bottle of Sprite into the bear’s mouth nor was there a keeper on site stopping visitors from throwing candied caramel popcorn at an elephant. This was very distressing and made my experience extremely unpleasant to such an extent that I did not feel right being in the zoo and taking part in the experience thus left early. It is very unfortunate to know that although the people were being accommodated, the animals were left on their own in horrible conditions. A visitor like myself should not have to scold others for pouring sprite or throwing popcorn into animal enclosures. This zoo needs more Zoo keepers to prevent such mistreatment from happening. Unless changes are made in favour of the animals and their wellbeing, I strongly urge potential visitors to rethink their decision to visit the zoo and contribute money to such an atrocious establishment. Edit l: if I could vote a 0, I would.
  • Nothing more worth than a couple white tiger and pandas to see. Dont get me wrong, there are plenty of animals to see but kept in not bright conditions. They say the Chengdu zoo is better. If you are in town and have a kid, i'd say check it out. Not worth for only adults.
  • Better views of the Pandas than Beijing. Also white 🐅 and many other animals. A large, clean, well marked zoo.
  • Great place to see Pandas
