“Fabulous place to visit with or without children.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2012

Visited Guangzhou Zoo in December 2011 with my partner / fiancé. We both had a fantastic time and took plenty of pictures. Whether your visiting the zoo with or without children you'll be sure to have a tremendous time.

“Hard to be positive.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

I am no animal rights activist, but this was hard to witness. I am a fairly even keeled and positive reviewer, so to sum it up - we made the best of the park, but we did not stay very long. I tried to make the best of the situation with the kids so that we could make the most of the visit, but it was a challenge. And most of the problem I had was with the other people visiting the park. Some of the zoo itself was ok and nice, but some of the conditions for the animals were deplorable and then people were throwing things at the animals to get their attention or to get a reaction, and even though all of the signs said do not feed or pester the animals that is just what they did. I think that is what aggrivated me the most. Yes, some of the animals were in areas with algea filled water and there wasn't much "habitat" except dirt and some hay they threw down, but not all was negative. We were able to feed the giraffs with some branches of leaves sold by the zookeepers, and see the panda being fed which was cool. There was a wide variety of birds there which was pretty neat and they did have some small carnival type rides and some nice ponds with fountains, but we cut the visit short. It was a holiday, so there was a large number of people there, and it might not be so bad with fewer people. The disrespect and behavior of the people really bothered me. All I could think about was that video in the news several years ago when those guys got mauled by that tiger after the crowd was harrassing them. Hence, we did not stay more than about 1.5 hours and walked swiftly........

“An old zoon in a convenient location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

With the admission fee RMB 20 only and easily accessed by metro, me and my husband spent about 2hrs for a quick visit to the zoo. Since this zoo has been built for quite some time, you can see the facilities and stuff are quite old. But not a bad option if you are tired of the busy city life. One tip from me is DON'T purchase the so-called 'package admission', because they just don't worth it.

“check been to Guangzhou Zoo...not coming back again”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012

I had an okay time but i have no desire to come back again. The entry fee is cheap but it does not include any of the shows. So if you want to see the shows buy the ticket that includes it. The zoo closes early at 4pm, so make sure you know the times for the shows because you will miss out.
