    Returning from overseas, has never seen pandas up close, Australia's kangaroos are only seen in the TV movie. However, repatriation has see this different baby animals at the Hangzhou Zoo, was very enjoyable. I grew up in Hangzhou have a soft spot for Hangzhou Zoo. The Zoo built by the mountain. Unique design. Not far from the town. Transportation is very convenient. Child's parents can take their children to play there one day. Tiger run around and other tourist attractions. Hangzhou Zoo in addition to pandas, kangaroos outside the Museum, crawling Museum is also very unique. That's something to see. Zoo tickets for average wage-earners can afford. In addition, each museum has security personnel in the Zoo, they warm and thoughtful service, deserves a mention.
