  • Headed to the Zoo with your friends. Table value is RMB 80 won. From an Internet site available to buy at discounted prices, please note that. Once the size is too big. I couldn't see everything in one day. I'm too old. The mountain can also be divided into two areas, and leave one cable car and go. Frankly, the animals are not unusual, several Zoo and similar parts, but had various performances are funny.

  • In fact, the reason I visited this place because of the pandas. Our nation cannot see the pandas to the Zoo ** this was to see the pandas, but admission is so expensive. Anyway we choose the wrong entrance (right in front of the main entrance of the pandas) for the entrance of the North came out the front door backwards. I know this one is the most the most height low main entrance North door. Therefore, from the front door to get to the highest place in the Tigers almost climbing level must exercise. If you want to view, such as the Tiger, Eagle and elephant show, and should be one of the past. as a result, to see the pandas, but only to see the pandas or asleep. I personally don't see the pandas did not have to.

  • 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。
