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.

  • We really liked the Zoo. The road didn't take much time, drove a taxi and went to park the car. Nature, flowers, animals and Arboretum are all well and good, many cafes, a detailed map (are) good pointers. Watched the show elephants! What they are smart! Especially liked the deer, we fed them, they are so touching. Many took pictures. Animals are different-different. spent there almost all day. But not working cableway, and it would be cool to look at everything from the top!

  • 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.
