  • We had several days to spend in Shanghai and we already did some tours and couldn't think of anything else to do other than hang out in the hotel room. "Maybe they have a zoo?" went through our head. ...  more »
  • Animals like tigers, sea lions or elephants did not to do ridiculous tricks for humans. The bears are unhappy and go round and round! Do not encourage their suffering!

  • Go once, not in a fangyuan can smell the stink, more chilling is, where the animals are really treated well? Starting from the door, the pony tied to spend money can ride, elephants, camels, many animals are tied up in the park waiting for tourists to ride. Other animals, in order to give children the opportunity to close, as long as the money can go in chasing animals feeding. Are you eating all day, I don't understand? There are too many tigers in the park to be withdrawn. Really do not dare to go, look at the animals are very poor. Become a tool for making money!

  • Awesome. Very educated place. Well manage and well organized. Especially for the wild animal. It will be much2 better if the tour bus use electrical transport mode. It will reduce polution inside the wild animal area. And really happy to see the animals are being take good care. Love the big pandas as well.
  • Awesome Zoo! Would recommend it to everyone. The Chinese Tourist's behavior against the animals is ridiculous but nothing to blame the zoo for. Nice zoo with big Cage's and good treated animals.
  • its like beeming urself to a wild park in africa in just 40 minutes from shanghai bustling metropole! i was impressed how well organized that is. only thing is that the young pandas didnt want to show up at that day. worth spending a full day if ur with family.
  • 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.
  • Really nice wild park! Animals seemed to be looked after very well.
