Nicely laid out in very extensive parkland setting with large enclosures for all the animals. The panda enclosure was under renovation but should be re-open now. Facilities for visitors dated and tired. Needs a refresh.

I did not hold too much hopes after reading the TA reviews. We took a car there but the zoo is located right beside the train station. The entrance fee of 80rmb was very cheap for a Zoo of its size and location. I have...More

Quite a good zoo with plenty of attractions. The animals appeared well looked after, although the elephants did show signs of distress. The cages and enclosures could do with being updated. There are restaurants there. For those not used to others with no concept of...More
