we were on a tour and therefore time limited to this attraction. We came to the zoo primarily to see the pandas and were not disappointed. The lovely sunny weather had brought all 7 pandas out to eat and sunbathe; the 8th panda is too old to be on show. We also saw white rhinos and hippos. The enclosures are... More

now this is the place if want to see the Pandas, the most laid back animal I have ever seen, comfortable surroundings plenty food to eat, personal servant to tend to their every needs, Indeed a protected bear, not for cuddling.

Nice zoo. The locals love it and visit to dance and do their tai chi. You can get close to the pandas. Also saw white rhinos and hippos. A pleasant way to spend a few hours.

We had a few hours before boarding our Yangtze river cruise so went to the zoo. Best attraction is all of the pandas, especially if you can't make Chengdu. Word of warning... not the best restroom facilities. Seemed like they were closed before the zoo closed. No western toilets for the ladies. For the local l s, we were more... More

If you didn't have a chance to make it to Chengdu, this would be a decent replacement, but not even in the same league. Overall, it is a good stop on your way to something else and obviously has more pandas than pretty much everywhere else in the world (except Chengdu). If you have the ability to get to Chengdu...

chongqing zoo is basically a standard zoo, but located amongst the typical high buildings of chongqing... In this busy center it's a nice place to come to rest. And... you can watch the panda bears... unfortunately they are a bit dirty (and lazy!). Actually for the many chinese visitors it seems that western people are the biggest attraction!

Went to the zoo on March 20, 2015. It is situated in the city across from a shopping mall where we went and had lunch. The zoo is notable for its panda exhibit. There are 7 pandas at the zoo, though not all of them are visible at once. They are in separate areas presumably because they want to keep... More

We traveled to this zoo in September 2014 with a tour group. It was a rainy day when we were at the zoo. We did see a two year old baby panda up in a tree. There were three other pandas eating. Some of the pandas were red. It was exciting to see the pandas at the zoo - but... More

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
