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.

  • The animal look so happy there! For a small fee you can buy food for some animals like flamingos, kangaroos, lions and tigers, zebras, elephants, hippo. There is no food you can buy for lemurs, but th...  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.
  • Name and shame this disgusting place.. DO NOT VISIT THIS ZOO. If you do you are supporting animal cruelty!
  • Animal abuse and cruelty in abundance. Disgusting and to be actively avoided.
