  • Many foreign zoos, but for me this is the best! There's just all animals! Very interesting, in the Park between the different territories of the TSD. If you're going to go there, do not take an electric car, you'd better walk all by myself to get around, just go have a lot)

  • The Zoo made the big guys from paving the mountain about 40 minutes by bus. Nice area one by one, the animals freely, but moved very little. Foreigners or runs where there are carts is not the lame words are harsh. Have seen pandas in Chengdu, including looking at best running here, wasn't teaki. Dalian residents at once.

  • 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
  • I am tired to walk since the waste. It is recommended, but the main Panda building is only 2. Tigers and bears there are. Admission is 120 Yuan. At the entrance are drinking ginseng for feeding and watering. Feeding on Zebra can do.

  • 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。
