Don't miss the Chongqing Zoo if you are in that city. The beautiful grounds represent the best in Chinese design of parks. Our time was limited so we only got to the Panda section. We were lucky: several were out and about in their separate landscaped enclosures, one of them contentedly munching on fresh bamboo shoots (photographers were in bliss).... More

The animals except pandas & lesser pandas was kept in horrible conditions. Dead reptiles in their terrariums etc. Basically no stimulation for the animals and the audience behaving .. Well, not behaving at all. Feeding the animals with snacks and tapping & screaming for the animals to get some sort of vibrations to the. The most saddest sight were the... More

If you want to spend a couple of hours away from the city this is not a bad place to come, subway line 2 and you are there. The entry fee is only 30rmb so it won't break the bank, the place itself is large and incorporates a reasonable funfair too. However most of the exhibits are very dated and... More

This zoo could be very nice but it's not kept up well, and the animal pens are small and very dirty. The grounds are also not kept up well, and the water ponds and small rivers are very dirty. The only way this place would be worth visiting is if you really need to see pandas (including the red pandas).... More

I had to remember that zoo's in China are different then back home, once dealt with that enjoyed myself, pandas out and about eating, some lions and tigers wandering around. First impression as you walk in is excellent, bit slipperly when its raining, as they have used a lot of smooth tiles on the ground.

The pandas werent there when we first went in which was why we went there, but there was 2 when we left. The best part was actually the lion cubs there at the moment - 5 of them. So cute!! There were no hippos or elephants out even though there were enclosures for the animals

The zoo in general is OK. The only thing that stands out in comparison with other Zoos is indeed the Pandas. Having said that, one thing really annoyed me and my wife, which motivated me to write this review. For god sake, if one cannot educate people to behave properly, the management of the Zoo should AT LEAST put enough... More

It was incredible. Initially we were a touch disappointed when we got to the panda exhibit as the first exhibit was of an empty pen with a sign saying that this was Ling Ling's pen and he moved in 2003. The second was a similar story but Yum Cha or Dim Sum or something had moved in 2007. The third... More

Not being a 'zoo' person, the main attraction were the Pandas and they did not disappoint. It was a public holiday, very hot and very crowded so it was a little difficult to appreciate the Pandas because of the jostling for position to take photos and observe the antics of these fascinating creatures. Suggest go as early as possible especially... More

We were with an organised tour, so had limited time at the zoo, so headed straight for the pandas. Managed to get there when they were all out, eating huge quantities of bamboo. The pandas are all in large enclosures, with plenty of room for them to exercise (though they didn't look inclined to do anything other than eat and... More
