  • Nice Zoo. Only rained when I went to visit. Convenient to golf cart and drive along the animals around.

  • I went to the zoo in winter and saw lots of parents taking their kids after spring festvial. It is hard to forget those bears.  more »
  • I grew up here. lack of facilities, no parking lot, dirty roads nearby.... We, locals, can actually go into the zoo by climbing over the mound(wall of the zoo). Its bad service doesn't measure up its entrance ticket price, let alone almost every inner-zoo animal house will charge separately. Local residents will charge you for parking fee, you have to pay even if you park your car on the road(NO PARKING LOT). Food and drinks inside the zoo are expensive, up to 5 times or higher than normal price.
  • Unbelievable hellhole for miserable animals run by inept and uncaring management. Google them, there are endless stories of animals suffering due to their shocking and cruel incompetence. How is this place even still open?!
  • Horrifically cruel place. Hard to imagine a business like this even remains open. Where's the outrage? Oh I forgot....there's no decent pple in China to care.
  • horribly cruel to their animals. unbearable. It should be closed down and the animals taken from them and given sanctuary. heartbreaking
  • "Disappointing experience can at least say" starsReviewed2014 May 22 I will start with the quality of redemption. There's one. The size and establishment of the zoo is really a great day's walk away. The attraction is really spread out, I understand, because I like to walk. Time of frustration. There are many kinds, in my opinion. These animals are not cared for. Most of them have limb deletions or tumours that are growing larger in some parts of their body. Some animals have hemorrhagic ulcers that have been significantly neglected. Most animals look tired, run down, and some look really like fidgeting, they need more room to move around, but without it. Many of the enclosures are too small, very dirty, and the old food and feces pile up and rot everywhere. Large birds do not have enough space to fly, so they jump around and beat off on the ground or several perches they are allowed to be one. One of the times I visited the age, there was not a giraffe with its mother baby, which was unable to stand up and shut itself in the cage. Another giraffe paced around its shell, seemingly anxious and uneasy. Worst of all, on both occasions, we visited the minimum staff. There was not a worker who evidently cared for these animals. At the same time, people are allowed to mock the monkeys and throw rubbish, and wrap up candies into their shells. No one was around to stop the harassment. In trying to see Tigers, we accidentally bought tickets to a circus act, which included the cruelty of the coaches forcing animals to do awkward (unnatural) tricks with whips and sticks and all-out aggression. I am not an animal expert, nor have I ever been to a circus because I was a child, but it doesn't seem to me right or friends I have. After we left the zoo, this was very objectionable and was disappointed throughout the experience. Visit January 2014
