I will not say that it is the best place however it is a decent place to visit specially with kids. Most of the Animals are in good shape, the atmosphere is very nice. So many things to do, lots of shows. I was not very impressed with Dolphin shows though, it was below average.

This park is great. Take the subway to University Town station. Park is about 1.4kms from station but a nice straight walk along the main road. Park will be indicated on top road signs. Everyone loved it. Plenty of animals in good shape and very close to see. There are some free shows but check the times. Best way to... More

I don't share the bad comments on this zoo. What is the main thing you're looking for in a zoo? Animals? in good shape, in great diversity and in great number right? Well that's exactly what you'll find in this zoo! Yes the equipment and decoration on some parts might seem a bit old but the animals are beautiful they... More

This zoo is great if you want to br hands on and feed different animals including tigers. It is not up to the high standard of an international zoo and needs some improvements. We feed lions, tigers and elephants. Worth it

The zoo brought back memories from the 70s! The place was dated and some bits deserted. However, I do enjoyed the shows and feeding the tigers. We paid RMB20 per person to get access on the buses that take tourists around, but they were not in sight frequently. So we ended up walking A LOT! Glad we went, but once... More

I stayed in Luohu and the journey by car was about 45 min. Kinda long ride. Please note of the Peak hours. The zoo is big with satisfied number of animals who have their own good space and enclosure. There are show times which are highlights of the visit including animal circus. Quality of show is good for first timers.... More

This probably would have been better if we had more then 30 minutes to stop here, unfortunately it was part of a day tour and we stopped here just to see the two Pandas. The gardens are well maintained and it looks like the park is well maintained too, but as I said it was a flying visit on our... More

I stayed in Shenzhen for 12 days and this is by far the best thing I did. The zoo was amazing, the main reason being that aswell as seeing the animals you could also interact them. By paying an extra 10-20 RMB it was possible to feed both giraffes, bears and elephants, and for 50 RMB you can go in... More

Everything here was old and lack of renovation, it maybe a popular place in the 90's but not now for sure. We went to a so called "Historical Museum", the attendant was sitting there playing his mobile like he doesn't care about this place, there was no air-condition and extremely hot, we just left within 2 mins. Then here comes... More
