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

The Panda centre in Chongquing is a must see venue. Not only are there close up views of fully grown pandas but a delightful insight into the upbringing of Panda cubs. One interesting fact is that young panda cubs love to climb trees and sleep dangled over branches. Unfortunately, they are not too good at climbing down trees after their... More

Personally I don't like zoos, but I guess it is the only way most people get to see the more unusual animals. In all my 76 years on this planet, I've never seen a live Giant Panda (and if I came from another planet I can't remember seeing any there either!), so it was quite an experience to see several...
