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

The pandas were obviously well taken care of. Could not say the same for the great apes, and huge felines. Not enough space; old-style "cages". The setting (huge park) is beautiful -- CQ should invest seriously to make it a modern animal-friendly as well as tourist-friendly place to visit!

Went here for about an hour as part of our tour. We got there as it opened and the pandas appeared for breakfast. We saw close up lions, tigers, bears and monkeys. I would liked to have stayed longer to explore but we had a plane to catch. I love well run zoos and this one seemed ok.
