#1 of 19 in Outdoors in Dalian
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 pleasant place to relax. Older children will enjoy, with small children will be tough (very large area, steep rises, heat). Not to say that animals kept in poor conditions, but in place of Habitat for bears, we could not be due to a terrible smell. So sorry for the little cubs, which is kept behind glass

    Dalian forest Zoo is now one of my favorite domestic Zoo, there are two reasons: in urban areas and are very hard. Compared with many zoos as far away as the suburbs of the city, Dalian forest Zoo in the Centre of the beach, not far from Xinghai square, where the world's longest Boardwalk seaside road, and the nearby famous attractions in Dalian Fu Jia Zhuang, beautiful scenery, convenient (tourist season on Saturday and Sunday will be a traffic jam). Dalian forest Zoo has many user-friendly design, after admission, you can taste, in fact, many of the ideas come from zoos around the world. Dalian forest Zoo reportedly often went to the famous zoo visits, learned a lot of great detail and design. Of course, there are disadvantages, for example, do not know what causes this year put out a lot less and closer to animal, for example, is not new to the Zoo, so not all the facilities are brand new, but afterward, I still like Dalian forest Zoo. Particularly important--remember: don't bring your own, or not to buy the food to feed the animals at the door, banned private food to feed the animals the Zoo, and a hand guard supervision. Really wanted to feed, the Zoo has special food, the price is not high. To know, door crazy selling carrot of aunt are are is cheat you of, many animal eat has carrot is not Digest of, I are see had black bear of will will in completely no Digest of carrot article, don't such torture these animal, they is cute, black bear to please food also will bowed, and turned somersault Oh ~ also has is, if to play, recommends only buy Dalian forest Zoo of tickets, door on has window sold, selling other tickets what, are don't buy ~

    The Zoo is just huge, inspection will take several hours or even a whole day. Aviaries are spacious, some animals (like llamas) walk to freedom. You can feed the animals-giraffes, zebras, etc. But be careful! The girl from our group Zebra bitten wrist. There is a corner of Cubs of animals, there's even a Cubs there. In short, I recommend to wear comfortable shoes and go out there, especially if you have small children.

    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.
