The Chongqing zoo has a good collection of pandas as well as a large number of other animals including the south china tiger. The grounds are nicely manicured as this formerly was a private garden.

The only enclosures that we saw that were acceptable to the animals were the Panda's. Most of the others could do with a good clean and make over. A lot of the animals looked old and in need of a good feed. We would not visit again if we visit Chongqing again!

Worth going for the Pandas....:Chester Zoo is our local zoo and by comparison this was a poor zoo, particularly for the animals. The zoo was clean and the Pandas were mesmerising, with a little more thought this could be a much better zoo

We were very disappointed when we visited the Giant Panda Breeding Research Base at Chengdu. We had to travel long distance and didn't see many Pandas. But here at Cheonquig zoo we saw more pandas in a small area. They were active and playful. We also saw the normal and white tiger. Time well spent here.

This zoo was part of our all day city tour, and the hour we spent here was worthwhile. We started with the pandas, and it was a different experience seeing 6 to 8 of them in individual habitats, than seeing the one or two in a US zoo. The ape exhibit was also memorable, and the grounds were beautiful. Our... More

We couldn't leave China without seeing the Panda bears.There were 3 on display here. You can view them without glass or wire between you, making photos supremely good! This is a lovely zoo, and though we only stopped to see the pandas, I expect other exhibits were equally well done. When we were there it was a holiday, and there... More

Our tour guide dropped us at the entrance and we have several hours to visit the Zoo. Very well kept and the panda viewing area was excellent.

The one thing that was not on our agenda for China was seeing the Giant Pandas. Then we arrived early to Chongqing and off we went. It was fabulous. It was a hot day on early June and there were no vendors for water or soda. The creatures were fabulous. Lions, tigers, bears. The enclosures were a bit lacking in... More

It was wonderful to see the Pandas and other animals found in China. Pity about the rain but it was still good

I've been obgligated to visit pandas in the zoo in a cage in Shenzen in 1993 because tour groups wrongly assume Americans are dying to see pandas! Not so! How could this be any different ? Well it was beautifully landscaped. The bears were comfortable ensconce on a mountain cave, with lots of woods between us and them. AND this... More
