Not much else apart for n the pandas and orangutans. Very sparse on animals and a bit run down. A long way to go from the city centre, although good train service. Expensive but I've been and won't be back

A good place to bring your young kids to learn about animal. The facilities could have been better but its adequate. The panda is the show stealer.

Best time to visit start in the early morning. Walk slowly and enjoy the view. Don't forget the cute little panda. You never know what they doing everytime. Get ready with your hp or camera.
