We visited the zoo on our way to the Yangtze River cruise because we'd been given an Encounter with a Panda. We cuddled Lan Xiang, a twelve year old female. She was very cooperative and posed for photos. I believe anyone can book a similar experience by exchanging some cash...

Our tour guide, Charlie, was wonderful. He took us first to see the Chongqing Zoo... to see the pandas! We were lucky enough to arrive right at breakfast time and spent close to an hour just watching the pandas amble out into their open-air enclosures to eat their morning bamboo. We also enjoyed seeing the other animals at the zoo,... More

Great zoo for a city of 33 million people. The pandas were animated and entertaining the crowds. Great facilities for snaks and restroom stops. Did not cost as we had time befor our embarkation in the Viking Emerald for a five day cruise down the Yangtze. The oddest thing was that there was a Walmart across from the zoo entrance.

We visited the zoo prior to our Yangtze River Cruise (Nexus Tours). Of course, the entire reason to visit was to see the 8 Giant Pandas (we saw 7). That said, I think that the Red Pandas stole the show - much cuter really. It wasn't that special for us though. It was a zoo, not the wild and we... More

The hilly terrain and lush green of Chongqing make for an excellent setting for a zoo. There is an elevated train stop that is labeled specifically for the zoo, so it is easy and cheap to find. The dinosaur area was especially fun.

Spent about an hour at this beautiful zoo to see the Pandas. Worth the visit as they were all outside, feasting on bamboo. The park like setting is well maintained. We also were able to see red pandas as well.

We visited the zoo after we disembarked the Century Legend cruise down the Yangtze as part of an Avalon Waterways trip through China. The main purpose of our visit was to view the Giant Pandas, and we were fortunate to see 5 of the 8 pandas who live there. The lesser, or red, pandas, were also a highlight. The zoo... More

A nice big zoo, with many giant and red pandas. The zoo is structured more like a park than a traditional zoo, so you get to enjoy a big green area in a huge city.

I did not like visiting the zoo as I felt that the animals did not have the correct environment. I felt quite sad coming away from there.

A nicely maintained zoo with a beautiful setting. The panda exhibits had seven pandas with one being a youngster. All were active and seemed well cared for. We did not have a lot of time here but we did the yaks, rhinoceros, hippopotamus and pelicans. Could get pretty close to all these animals so it is well worth the visit,... More
