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.

  • Zoo removes the ogromneshuju territory, in my opinion is the best zoo in China. I advise you to visit it and to adults and children, will not remain indifferent. It is not possible to describe everything, but also animals, strolling in free enclosures, you can see a greenhouse with tropical plants, snakes and crocodiles, a nursery for small pets, elephant show, House of parrots. For children there is the town attractions and playground with slides. Dedicate a day you can Zoo

  • 很大的动物园,如果要去这里,请准备好充足的体力以及时间。公交线路只有一趟车,赶上堵车过去挺费时间的。园内有条空中栈桥,强烈建议走这个。如果在下面走,要多走好多路,一天的时间看不完。
