This is a really lovely Zoo with lots of space to walk around and to view the gorgeous Pandas. Make sure you wear suitable footwear as there is a lot of walking involved, and of course you will need your camera/Ipad or camcorder to take lots of photos/videos of these cute cuddly creatures. We also saw the lovely Red Pandas... More

With a group tour we had this on our itinerary and well worth the visit. One of our group wanted to be with a panda but was fobbed off with a poor excuse by our tour manager (Riviera Travel). He was prepared to pay whatever but I think it would have upset the schedule. Notwithstanding that everyone had a great... More

Beautiful facility! Lots of pandas! Reasonably priced souvenirs! Great views of the city. When it's very hot, be prepared to view the pandas inside! They get hot too!

Not to be missed! These gorgeous creatures roam in large compounds, very naturally and at peace. The younger ones play and climb trees or play peep bo with each other. It's a good walk inside the place as there are many compounds and there are all big, giving the pandas space. Unfortunately, the curtains in the delivery areas were closed... More

We had to walk a lot between different building. In each building there wasn't much to see. We were told that the Panda were a lazy animal and were mostly sleeping. So we didn't see many pandas.

Its better than a zoo and the pandas are just incredible. The place isn't very well signed (the language is not the issue) so it becomes a bit of a maze. Don't miss the pandas

Amazing animals. Get there as early as possible as this is when they are most active. Long walks to each area which was a shame as it was pouring with rain, but I'm sure it's not normally a problem.

Lovely day out. Would recommend not taking an organised tour - we just took a taxi from the hotel and then the entrance fee which was about a fifth of the tour prices. The tour groups are also herded around, whilst we were free to wander as we wished.

I thought the entire base was excellent. There were lots of small Panda's which we saw playing together, a very memorable experience. Naturally the area was spotlessly clean and although there is pollution in the air,I heard birds chirping whilst walking around, I just didn't see any.
