  • Compared to Beijing or Shanghai smaller zoos, but pretty interesting, even giant pandas are available (for Chinese zoos is the norm once a nursery in Sichuan, for European pandas still luxury), liked the Tigers, several other bears, very good flamingos in large quantities (never seen prior to this visit, chicks, they're funny, grey, fluffy). In fine weather, you can easily spend a whole day here. Well thought out: a lot of toilets, there are cafes, signs.
