Very good presentation of animals especially the panda! But too much people here. Just leave when you finish your panda visit.

We had a short stop here after our river cruise. We went early in the morning and it was uncrowded, most people being locals practicing tai chi etc. The main attraction is the panda area. There were 7 or 8 pandas in a fairly big paddock, in which it was easy to get good and clear photos. Zoo was spacious... More

They have some cute pandas but the enclosures were large (good) and when I went the pandas stayed way in the back (bad). Along the way there was lots of funny English translations of the signs. Those signs are enough for me to add an extra point.

If you like zoos, this one was fine. We only went to the zoo to see the pandas. The pandas were cute, though.

If you want to see pandas in China & you're not going to Chengdu, this is an opportunity to see some. The zoo itself isn't that clean. Some of the animals look under weight. Go to see the pandas but I wouldn't waste too much more time there.

This extensive zoo has one of the best panda exhibits in China. The foliage on the grounds is beautiful and there are many animals to view.

We visited the giant panda exhibit at the Chongqing Zoo as part of a Chongqing area tour arranged for us by Abercrombie and Kent, largely to kill some time before we were able to embark our boat to start a downstream river cruise. I was not enthusiastic about going, but our guide assured us that we would be visiting during... More

While on tour with Viking cruises we had some extra time to stop in at the zoo. I was excited as the Pandas in Beijing zoo were depressed and lethargic. These pandas were happy and eating and showing off for the crowd. They are in a shaded area so you can spend some time watching them. The panda area is... More

Visited this as part of a tour with viking cruises. Not a huge fan of Zoos, but this one was manageable and the Pandas were lovely. There are several cages for the pandas, who seem to be very lazy animals, they just eat bamboo and doze, but they are extremely cute. Apparently they aren't very interested in sex, so you... More
