    The main difference of this park from ordinary zoos that the animals are not in cages but in spacious enclosures. Of course, there are certain precautions to dangerous animals did not attack the park visitors, but still there is a sense that the animals quite freely here feel. Another feature of the Park is that very many animals you can pet and feed for a very small fee. It can be seen that the animals here are carefully looked after and surround with care. Elephants poured cold water from the hose, and alpacas several times a day bring large pieces of ice, which they gladly lick. In the park there is a huge Lake, where free live different species of waterfowl, so at one point you can see representatives of most birds. Here there is a manger for animals and an incubator for the eggs, so you can see how look just born Cubs or meerkats. They are all insanely pretty ☀ But there is a downside, in a park very much tourist attractions, such as the feeding of Lviv, where animals are forced to jump and climb the pole to get food. There is also a circus animal show dangerous stunts, and if the animal is afraid, they begin to beat his lash. There are a large number of species that are clearly not adapted to this climate. Why keep the brown bears and polar wolves outside at + 44 with?!?! Penguins in the Aviary with a small pool too, not sweet.

    Went to the Metro subway 20-30 minutes on foot. Were 4-year-old child-get no problem. If you visit the children simply not required. We often are in zoos in different countries-most PIN. Our daughter suited and fed-Flamingo, Tiger (buying Meat on a skewer), hippo, Kangaroo, lemurs, giraffe. I think someone else can. This seems to me to be found nowhere else. Lemurs generally run around you in a specially designated area. Most pay feedings, but the cost is very reasonable. Plus Safari bus indoor and outdoor. Really very cool impression to see Tigers, Lions, wolves, bears and cloven-hoofed animals in the wild. Go by bus-you road enters the Lion for instance really captures. Plus the opportunity to ride on camels, elephants and horses. Panda also can be seen-but there's always a bunch of Chinese are not so good. The only thing depressing two things-animals not in good condition is certainly not European zoos and has nothing at all to eat in my opinion. All that is sold in coffee shops, normally only for Chinese stomach))) If you're a kid-uniquely stands out half a day at the Zoo. Impressions from such contact and feeding for a long time!

    The zoo is on a sprawling 21 acres. Though the entrance fee was a very reasonable 130 RMB ($26 CND) for adults and 65 RMB ($13 CND) for children, expect additional charges of between 20-50 RMB ($4-10 ...  more »

    I don't know if this is the most humane zoo, but In terms of being able to see the animals up close and active, often even being able to feed and touch them (flamingos, kangaroos, elephants, giraffes) I've never seen a better zoo. They have rare animals like ligers, they have a bus you can ride through animal habitats from which they are fed, giving you a close look at even dangerous carnivores. One lets you feed them and the other you cant but the driver still feeds them so I thought it was worth the 40 yuan per person or so we saved by taking the cheaper bus. A bear even climbed onto the caged bus, refusing to let go until he was fed. It's near Disneyland so if you head there or to the airport it's worth visiting. The food there is terrible so you should eat before going or bring your own.

    LOVED IT, really big park but everything was close enough. Ticket price was only around 20 usd but with student discounts that make it half price. Little fees to do things inside but thats to be expected, the park is HUGE and needs a way to keep all its animals fed, the wildlife tour thing had way more animals than i expected and was bigger than i thought. worth the 80 yuan for the wildlife tour

    If you love to see animals being abused then you will love this place, if you are like me and love animals and care about their well being DO NOT GO HERE!!!!!! This place is a hell on earth for animals.

Where to stay in Shanghai

As one of China's top commercial cities and tourist destinations, Shanghai offers accommodations that range from backpacker-friendly haunts to five-star hotels in futuristic skyscrapers. Few world cities can rival Shanghai in terms of room variety, services, and prices, and all types of travelers can easily find suitable options based on their preference and budget limitations. Puxi and Pudong remain probably the best options for most foreign visitors, as these areas offer both modern hotels packed with amenities and older establishments loaded with traditional charm.
