“So sad.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Nice to see the Pandas but this zoo does not deserve to be on anyone's agenda. The animals are kept in deplorable conditions, some show great neglect, some in dark cages and the facilities are disgusting as well. This facility needs upgrading or close it down.

“panda atrractive you”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

This zoo is famous for Panda.But you must choose suitale time to watch panda.Normally Panda will have some activities outside in the moring.it is better to visit there between 9:00-11:00am.
Of course,there are many other animals.it is good place for children.

“They have Pandas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

They have Pandas. You knew that already. That's why you're going to visit. They have other stuff too. But they do have Pandas. They can be relied upon to come out early morning and late afternoon for feeding. So they are good times to visit. Say by half past nine. (Assuming you actually want to see the Pandas). Viking tours wanted us to see a sales pitch for art after the Pandas but we played truant and went looking for tigers (shhhh!!!). They have tigers too (as well as the Pandas). Now you just think that they have the big Giant Pandas. But they have others Pandas too: Red Pandas (you've never heard of them have you?). Plus all the other zoo stuff. We also saw lots of keep fit classes Chinese style: weird. But we did see Pandas.
It's much like any zoo (apart from the Pandas) If you do the Viking trip from Beijing I don't think they have time for the Panda visit. SO, if you want to see Pandas, check it out before you book.
(Unless you don't like Pandas)
