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. Using our custom trip planner, Dalian attractions like Dalian Forest Zoo can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
