23 Euros for adults; 19 Euros for "children" (aged 3-7) - be prepared to put down some money for this experience. Also please skip the monkeys - there are at least 100 of them in a cement area the size of a large backyard and it is one of the most depressing things I have ever seen. The dolphin show... More

As a huge panda lover I knew that this zoo was a must, as one of the two places in Europe which house the giant panda, and I was not disappointed! The access to the pandas was incredible - there was no restriction on how long you could stay with them, and the panda cub was too gorgeous to miss!... More
