  • 大济南的动物园竟然不觉得比烟台南山公园的动物园好,可能去的时间不对,动物都休息了吧,很多都只有园,没有动物,不过真的很大,还是挺值得一去的 
  • In addition to being an interactive zoo, huge and with different animals, there is also a park d fun in it. It's about as far from the center of Jinan, but cab is easy going. Taxi in China is pretty cheap. I paid 75 yuan from near the mountain of Buddha to the zoo. The House of mirrors is wonderful. Almost everything in there has to pay. for example to feed animals, enter the Aquarius, etc.. but amamei ... Thanks too much. get ready to walk. The room has coffee shops, but has several malls close.
