Go and see the pandas enjoying their breakfast at 9 a.m.

The pandas are wonderful, with plenty of space for each of them, and their enclosures are well kept. However, the same cannot be said for other animals in this zoo. It's quite fun... read more

If you would like to see Giant Pandas, then this is one of the places. Visit before 12:00 PM or after 2:00 PM because the Pandas are kept inside between 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM. We saw three of them munching on the bamboo leaves. They are gorgeous. Other than that, there are lots of exotic birds but they were... More

The pandas are wonderful, with plenty of space for each of them, and their enclosures are well kept. However, the same cannot be said for other animals in this zoo. It's quite fun watching the locals who like coming here for their Tai Chi and dancing routines.

As other reviewers have said, the pandas get the best deal here. Their enclosures are largeand just about acceptable. The rest of the zoo is actually quite spectacular. Their gardens, landscaping and walkways are very extensive, but the other animals get very substandard enclosures. Too much concrete is used (the Chinese answer to everything) and the enclosures are simply poor.... More

We went in the afternoon after a morning of rain. I guess the pandas had been napping before we arrive and then were spunky in the afternoon. The baby panda was doing summersaults!!!!

We only had about 45 minutes to visit the zoo and it was raining which made more difficult to navigate during these 45 minutes. I had the pleasure of filming a panda as he was eating. As far as the conditions of the grounds as far as I could see they were well maintained and kept. Some to the cages... More

We visited the zoo at the end of our Yangtze river cruise. Fifteen years ago I paid my first visit here to see the Pandas and it was in a very tired, sad state with only two Pandas looking not particularly well-kept. However this time, the zoo was a much smarter, calm environment with the Pandas ( 6 of them... More

Maybe we had a bad luck with the weather - it was pouring with rain all afternoon. Most of the animals were hidden all the time, fortunately we had a chance to see one of the pandas and had a good time feeding the Golden fishes. But the conditions the animals are living in are terrible - especially the monkeys.... More

After our morning flight from Xi’an, our tour group took a chartered bus to the zoo. The stars of course are the 7 or 8 panda bears housed in what appears to be separate enclosures. The youngest and cutest bear is “TinTin”, born on August 30, 2015. This zoo has the usual selection of animals – giraffe, elephant, zebra and... More

If you are not going to Chengdu, don't despair. There are plenty of healthy well kept pandas to see in the Chongqing zoo, in large enclosures. Pandas can be seen from both ground level and from a walkway above some of the enclosures. The zoo is a short taxi ride from downtown.

Our first point of tour @ Chongqing, and our first visit was to the Panda section. We were lucky to have have Ya Ya do a show of climbing on to the swing and feasting on Arrow bamboos. The zoo has a fairly good collection and considering it being in the city has fairly spacious and well kept enclosures. All... More
