  • 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.
  • Really nice wild park! Animals seemed to be looked after very well.
  • 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.

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.
