  • Get fashionable right on the Metro. It is necessary to go to the station "Wild animal park". From the station you can take a taxi (but only take what counted, otherwise badly overpay!). Go by car minutes 7-10, go walk-about half an hour along the road. Very good place for adults and children! On very large area hosts a large number of animals in the most convenient conditions for them. There is the usual us small cells. Each kind has its own spacious area. Advise bus ride-cage around the perimeter for predators. The Guide gives the animal feed, so they attract and amuse tourists. We've got to take a good place on the bus and we saw in the immediate vicinity of the muzzle of a Lion: Guide to sword planted a piece of meat and stuck through the bars, a lion climbed forepaws on the grill to pick up this piece. Trip is included in the ticket price for this territory in a closed bus, but there is, of course, this cannot be seen. In addition, part of the Park, where there is a non-dangerous animals, you can see the Panda, giraffe, feed the elephants (kids just pishhali from the Rapture), see kangaroos, lemurs, and many others.

  • This zoo is better than the Shanghai zoo at Hongqiao, my opinion. But if you live in the city (Puxi), this place is quite far. Transportation is an issue. Otherwise, I think it's definitely worth taking your kids there. By the way, please rent a tricycle riding inside the zoo, trust me!
  • Large zoo and the animals seems fairly treated and the pandas were somewhat active for being pandas. They also had baby animals gatherd in a certain part of the park. Don't miss the tiger feeding, pandas and the bus ride.
  • Been there in April 2012 during my 10 days holiday. A good place to take kids for a whole day trip. There's so much to see and do there. Can either walk around or sit on a tour bus that goes around the zoo 🐯🐍🐵🐼🐰🐺🐛🐊. Also, there are multiple scheduled shows in the arena. Or go to their amusement park. However, don't expect top notch cleanliness or hygiene. Bring your own tissues, and lots of it (just in case 😅). Would I go back? Yes 👍.
  • Very nice place, big and lots of animals. Safari bus that goes next to lions, tigers and other animals on open enclosure is also fun. And can not miss pandas! People were behaving very bad but that's common for zoos in china.
  • Shanghai Wild Animal Park is probably the best zoo in Shanghai. By my estimation, there are three primary areas of the park - the bus tour area, the "on-foot" zoo, and the shows and amusement park area. Visiting all three should probably take at least two visits - three if you're going at a more leisurely pace. Pricing is a steal at 130 CNY/adult. Like most attractions in Shanghai, children under 1.3 meters in height are free. If you are in Shanghai for an extended period of time, you should definitely consider a family annual pass which is around 650 CNY - again that's for the whole family, so it pays for itself by the third trip, which, as stated above, is just enough time to visit the whole park. The animal enclosures are very nice, especially compared against many other zoos in Shanghai and China in general. Generally it seems like the animals are well cared for as well. The rides are fun but could definitely use some upkeep. The shows are also entertaining but most of them feature animal performances that can be disturbing for animal rights enthusiasts. The venues, like the rides, could also use some better upkeep. The overall environment of the zoo is a highlight in its own right - it's very pleasant to walk around especially when the weather is cool.
