Guangzhou Zoo, Guangzhou

3.0
#6 of 82 in Outdoors in Guangdong
Come and meet the furry, feathered, fluffy, and fierce residents of Guangzhou Zoo, one of the largest urban zoos in the country. Set over 42 ha (103.7 ac) of land close to the city center, the zoo houses a vast range of animals, with over 4,500 creatures of 450 species. The landscaped grounds have been designed to look like the creatures' native habitats, and visitors have the chance to see rare animals, such as giant pandas (sisters Yali and Wenli are undoubtedly the zoo's stars), south China tigers, lions, black-necked cranes, and golden monkeys. A visit to Guangzhou Zoo represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Guangzhou trip planning app to plot your vacation.

  • Guangzhou zoo is surrounded by high rise units and not far from Teem mall. Panda enclosure was closed when we visited and enclosures show sign of ageing. Admission for 2 adults was 40 RMB and user pay...  more »
  • The cages are great but very badly cared for. Full of weeds, and few have running water. The animals were all thin and look very tired, the DOH to see the animals in this State. The main attraction was the Panda cage was empty and closed. We get frustrated, we do not recommend this place!

Where to stay in Guangzhou

Guangzhou's commercial industries make it well-equipped to host visitors, though do book well ahead of time if traveling during the peak fall and spring trade fair rushes. The city's gleaming skyscrapers contain a number of the best four- and five-star hotels in Guangzhou, while others lie tucked away in historical European-style buildings. For budget-friendlier options, a number of youth hostels welcome a steady stream of international visitors, though most are located outside of the city center.
