  • It is a zoo in Japan compared to about 10 times wider sense. I think, walking all around golf 3 rounds as walking. 見廻tte Temple about two hours walk with his wife in full-term and 15000 steps walked. Never regret if a woman comes in. This is with the intention of trekking backpacks, sportswear required sneakers. Also, interrupted the tall bamboo, and fewer buildings and airy so unless wind breakers, summer cold is also required. It would be good, less good quality food shops and restaurants and walking around hungry, so before entering you raised at a convenience store drinks, snacks, sandwiches, etc. Chinese customers are poor, even though there are prohibition signs give sweets, such as animals, but not absolutely. Think there are in Japan to see the pandas go, but to see one's most valuable animal in China Gold 丝 monkey (golden hair monkey) not only in China and said the bride.

  • We just couldn't leave China without seeing Giant pandas, so we made a brief visit to this zoo. It was a nice, quiet and pretty setting with lots of pandas. They are non-social so each was in its own ...  read more »

  • First and foremost, the conditions for the animals (which is who you're there to see) are subpar and very dirty. Many of the areas for public sitting and rest were filthy, lots of trash strewn about along the grounds of the entire place, as well as just the general walking paths. I give it 2 stars because the cost is great (¥40 adult ¥20 kids and free toddler), there IS a lot to see and they take pristine care of the gardens in the front entryway. The place gets beyond crowded on the weekends, so visit on a weekday.
  • Terrible conditions, allmost no staff around and cages were dirty. The water which the swans swam in were both dirty and contained oil. Not worth a visit if you love animals.
  • Didn't manage well in stopping visitor disturbing the animal and didn't gave the animal a clean place for rest I often smell the smell of Ammonia, it's terrible for a place where animals should be relax and happy, that's what I didn't saw on their face . But the ticket is pretty cheap only ¥40 for adult ¥20 for student, but giving the animals a warmer home is much more important that selling cheaper tickets for visitors hope they will improve soon☺
  • Excellent way of spending time away bfm the hustlr n bustle of Shanghai concrete jungle to a green outdoor activity. Panda n many other attractions one shud not miss n for families for a long outdoor highly recommend. Kids will love it!
  • Good place to visit with kids
