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

    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, to say the least" 15 starsReviewed2014 on May 22, I'll start with redeeming qualities. Have one. Size and the creation of the Zoo is really great all day long walk. The attraction is really spread out, I understand, because I like to walk. Time of frustration. There are many types, in my opinion. These animals are not taken care of. Most of them have limb deficiencies or tumor growing in some parts of their body. Some animals have a bleeding ulcer, has apparently been ignored. Most animals look tired, run down, and some really look like on pins and needles, they needed more space, but without it. Many of the chassis is too small, very dirty, old food and feces piles of rotting floor is. Birds do not have enough space, so they jumped around, beaten on the ground or one of the few who were allowed. A time I visited, her mother has not been a baby giraffe, which is able to stand up, kept in a cage itself. Another giraffe paced around their enclosure, anxiety and unease. The worst on both occasions, we visit a minimum of staff. Is there a worker apparently take care of these animals. Meanwhile, people are allowed to mock the monkeys and trash, and wrapped candies into their shell. No one around to stop this harassment. Trying to see Tiger, we accidentally bought a ticket to a circus act, including coach's brutal forced the animals to do awkward (not natural) tricks with whips and sticks, and full-scale invasion. I am not an animal expert, nor I have been to a circus since I was a child, but this does not seem to be my right or my friends I have. After we left the Zoo, which is, very disgusted and disappointed the entire experience. Visit January 2014

Where to stay in Taiyuan

The majority of Taiyuan's accommodations line the grid-like streets of the city center, either side of the north-south river that bisects it. Almost all flank Middle Ring Street and are comfortable but undeniably bland business hotels. You can find the highest concentration of options around Yingze district, but don't expect much variation from the soulless, mid-range accommodations found throughout town.
