My wife and I visited this zoo to see the pandas. The pandas were cute to watch. This zoo is more of a park for the locals to exercise, as there are not many animals to see. The lone elephant was in poor condition and looked miserable.

Seeing pandas close up was a great experience and my rating is based on that alone. The rest of the zoo whilst set in attractive gardens has concrete enclosures reminiscent of overseas zoos of the last century. The zoo really needs to be updated to improve the environment for the animals.

We never dreamed we'd get this close to the Giant Pandas- it was a thrill. Our tour company took us fairly early in the morning when the animals are eating. The zoo has cleverly set up wooden platforms close to the visitors' walkway and puts the food ( bamboo leaves) on these platforms. Each panda has his own platform, runs... More

The zoo is famous for the pandas but it has much more. We arrived when the pandas were feeding so saw them when they were very active. The red pandas are also interesting. There are also tigers, Tibetan bears, hippos, and other animals. Visiting is easy with plenty of walkways.

We learned that pandas are similar to koalas in that they eat bamboo which is not particularly nutritional. Thus the do little other than eat. sleep and poop. We were lucky to arrive just as they were being let out of their overnight quarters and ready for their morning meal. They basically sat there looking at us and eating. The... More

It is home to few Pandas. Kangaroo, white peacock are other specials. Originally we planned to visit Chengdu just for seeing Panda. Came to know that Chongqing zoo has Panda through trip advisor forum. Saved lots of time.

We visited this zoo to see a panda. We were able to see them close up which was a highlight. After leaving the panda enclosure we walked around to see other exhibits. This zoo is so rundown the animal enclosures were so small and mostly on concrete with no grass or dirt to wander on. The brown bears were doing... More

We visited here as part of a Sinorama tour and were delighted to see the Giant Pandas. Luckily we arrived at feeding time so all the Giant Pandas were out and feeding. They were quite active and were a lovely sight. The Lesser (red) Pandas were an unexpected pleasure too. We spent most of our time between these two enclosures... More

We mainly went to see the Pandas and were not disappointed. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. All animals have plenty of space to walk around...

I love all animals and I own pets. China takes great pride in their panda population and so they should. I was lucky to see four on my visit at feeding time. Each was alone in a sad enclosure and it may be more than adequate, but I'm not sure. A stray dog with mange wandered through the zoo.
