Meet the locals at Dalian Forest Zoo, extending 7.2 sq km (2.8 sq mi) with more than 1,000 animals of 130 different species. Head to the wild cat section to view lion and tigers, and see sets of bears amid the rocky landscape of their enclosures, where you can buy food to give them if you like. Don't miss the giant pandas among masses of bamboo--the main attraction of this diverse and educational facility. A trip on the 1 km (0.6 mi) cable car offers extensive views of the zoo while in transit, as well as from an observation platform at the end of the route.

  • A lovely zoo. The animals seem quite happy and were very playful while I was there.
  • Best zoo in the world!!!!!
  • Absolutely spectacular experience if you are a nature lover
  • Compared to the Zoo in Japan, quite broad. Panda and the Tiger is worth a look is. 120 original admission. Not good to eat in the garden. I think come with kids and fun.
