We went for the pandas but the panda habitat was very small, the zoo was big, I will give the benefit of doubt because it was winter and the animals habitat was sad but I think it was because they were warm

We only went to see the pandas. I’ve heard really sad stories about other parts of the zoo, but we didn’t visit most of the zoo. The panda exhibit was very good.

Upon reflection, I wish I had not gone here. I wanted to see the Panads and while they did not disappoint the rest of the zoo is basically animal cruelty. I seriously think the Polar Bear is dying. Do not support this place the animals...More

Walked in instantly felt unhappy. Having been to many zoos around the world I felt saddened to see the most unhappy lifeless animals I have ever seen. The only happy animal were the pandas probably because you had to pay extra to get in so...More

Visit the zoo to see the panda's. Nothing special, just a zoo like any other one. The zoo is clean and cheap to visit.

This zoo is freezing and desolate in winter, but we were determined to see Giant Pandas. We were not disappointed. We saw 7 different individuals. The other animals in smallish cages were not remarkable. The staff go to some lengths to make the Panda enclosures...More
