Grossly Inadequate Conditions for the Animals
Apr 2020
While some animal enclosures appeared adequate, some, notably the sea turtle's, were grossly inadequate - the worst zoo enclosure I've ever seen. Along with some other visitors dating to 2009 on various internet sites, I found these animal conditions overtly reprehensible and contacted the World Association of Zoos & Aquariums to report this. Unfortunately, as the Hangzhou Zoo is not a WAZA member, their animal welfare team was limited in their ability to enact change.

So best I can recommend is not to support the Hangzhou Zoo with your $$ and to recommend to others that they do the same (NOT visit).

Clean zoo but Uncivilized visitors
Oct 2018 • Solo
Most visitors are families with kids. I took bus 31 to reach there, international visitors can use Baidu map when navigating in Hangzhou, it's more detailed than google map. Admission ticket is 20yuan. The zoo and enclosures are relatively clean but I see a lot of uncivilized local visitors who feed strange things to the animals in order to get the feeding experience or a good photo. No staff was around to stop them. I'm unsure how the management is handling because surely such nonsense feeding will result in sick animals. They did place signs on the enclosures to discourage such behaviour but I conclude this strategy doesn't work well. Hopefully the management can find better ways to prevent that.

This zoo links to Hupao Spring so you can walk according to directions. You can buy ticket to hupao spring along the zoo's exit towards hupao spring.

Some good, some bad
Apr 2019 • Family
We went along with limited expectations and we were pleasantly surprised in parts about some of the nicer enclosures, however some were small and did not seem enjoyable for the animals. We found a Chinese acrobatic show which our children enjoyed. The new Chimpanzee enclosure was also very well put together. The vote of a panda is very close and the enclosure was okay. A good collection of reptiles. The enclosures for some of the turtles and big cats were not appropriate in our view.

Very disappointed
Jan 2018 • Family
Poor management in all aspects. The animals are completely abused by the visitors who demonstrated that their new found opulence rarely is supported by civilized behavior and educated manners. People were spitting, throwing stones, swearing at the animals. Parents placing their children on the edge of the fences. The zoo personnel, though around, were ignoring and even smiling at such people. The zoo maintenance and cleanliness was bad with rubbish and litter everywhere. Even the WC were completely dirty, smelly and very badly kept. Hangzhou is one of the most important and beautiful cities of China and it must be given a zoo of global standards because it is a matter of image.

Pandas!
Nov 2016
This zoo is very clean and easy to navigate. It's not a big place, but the conditions for the animals were well maintained. The highlight for me was seeing the pandas. At some zoos, it's impossible to see them without dozens or hundreds of people standing in your way. At Hangzhou, I was the only person at their enclosure. This is combinable with a trip to Tiger/Hupao Spring directly next door for a nice day trip.

Felt bad for some of the animals!
Jul 2016 • Friends
Really wanted to see some animals whilst in China so a zoo seemed like the perfect place to see Pandas! Trip started off ok, was pretty busy but then we were looking at the turtles and some of the Chinese were chucking their water bottles and stuff at them to make them move. Didn't really see any staff about. The panads weren't doing a lot and didn't have much space but the worst part was probably the bears. The Chinese tourists were feeding them their own food, they were kept on a lower level where you can look down on them and people were sitting their kids over the railings which wasn't too safe! Did enjoy the trip but obviously in comparison to the zoos in the UK the welfare of the animal didn't seem so good in this particular zoo but nevertheless a good chance to see animals we don't have in our country.

I wish there was a lower rating than one.

This was the saddest, most horrible zoo I have ever visited. The cages were small, the animals were lethargic and constantly harassed by visitors. Animals could be seen begging for food as they were pelted with trash and rocks by sightseers. I do not recommend going to this zoo if you have any compassion for animals. I went with my fiancé and his mother and our trip was cut short in order to prevent a scene from occurring. I would recommend visiting zoos in larger cities instead.

Sad zoo...
May 2016 • Family
I visited this zoo because my 6 yrs old son insisted. I still have in my mind the cage in which the wolf lives. So small, all by himself, he could just try to jump on the window that separeted him from us. The wolf is the worst memory among others animals there threated very badly, in small cages. I really felt how ugly mankind can be to imprison all these beautiful animals just for money and fun. I also saw many guys spitting on the bears...no one did control, so I was forced to yell at them to stop spitting at animals...I wish I could free them all...

Lots of animals from all over the planet, even some kangaroos from Australia. Most animals were lethargic.
