See the rare giant panda at Shanghai Zoo (Shanghai Dongwu Yuan), the largest zoological garden in the city, boasting more than 6,000 animals from all over the world. Set on the verdant slopes of a repurposed golf course, the spacious zoo contains enclosures sprinkled among a vast variety of trees and lush green lawns. Exploring the zoo grounds on foot, or by shuttle bus, you can encounter rare local animals, such as the golden monkey and the South China tiger, as well as a variety of mammals, birds, and amphibians that hail from other parts of the world.
