#3 of 6 in Zoos & Aquariums 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.
