If you love nature and want to learn more about animals, then visit the Macau Zoo. It is located in the Seac Pai Van Park, where you will find a lot of greenery, picnic areas, and playgrounds. After having a morning picnic, I wandered around the park. It is designed as a giant fan occupying 3,000 m2 and its goal is to coexist with the nature surrounding it. Part of the Macau Zoo is the Giant Panda Pavilion, famous for being the home of giant pandas and red pandas – a species I didn’t know! The pavilion is surrounded by a 600 m2 yard, has 900 m2 of indoor exhibition rooms, and 2 parts of 33m2 for activities, all creating spectacular images never to be forgotten!

Make sure to have a Macau's number, the staff will not help you to call a taxi even knowing that you have little children. To call a taxi you need to have a Macau/HK number, roaming won't work.

Animals at this exhibit are healthy and great Pandas. I've seen the pandas but will never go back, had really bad experience with the staff here.

Macau's panda refuge is a short bus ride away from the glitzy Cotai casinos. The pavilion is at the city's serene countryside and remains unspoiled. Seeing the cute, chubby creature eating or sleeping is an interesting experience, adults and kids alike. Free admission.

Arrived after lunch so both pandas were napping. We decided to wait a while and thankfully, they woke after about half an hour or so and we were treated to their cute antics - the way they handled their bamboo snacks really reminded me of Kung Fu Panda!

Besides the pandas, this place has a few other animal exhibits e.g. red pandas, lemurs, flamingos etc. Everything will take you max 1 - 1.5hrs. Admission is free so what's not to love?

I'm afraid too many past reviewers have focused on the Seac Pai Van Park, which is actually a separate attraction, not particularly special. However, the Panda Pavilion is an excellent opportunity to see pandas, for a very cheap price of MOP10.

We were very lucky on our recent trip finding both pandas very active, feeding on bamboo and being very photogenic. This was an excellent experience, one we will remember for a long time.

However, you do have to be realistic when visiting animal attractions, especially with the likes of pandas which are very inactive animals. Thus, there is a good chance that during a visit, Xin Xin and Kia Kia (the pandas) will be sleeping or inactive. Obviously this can leave people disappointed when you really want to see the cute pandas playing, eating or close-up. So do make sure your expectations are set correctly and that you realize there is a chance that you won't see them at their best. Remember, they are pandas, right!

We're not sure what their feeding schedule is but we visited during session A (10-11am) during our last trip. They were being fed and were, thus, very active during our visit.

If you are visiting Macau with children, this is an excellent attraction, just 5-6 minutes ride from the Venetian, City of Dreams and Galaxy facilities in Cotai.

There are a few additional animals and play area at the Seac Pai Van Park where you find the Giant Panda Pavilion but they are just ok, not worth targeting in Macau. However, if you are interested in seeing pandas you might as well let the kids enjoy the rest of the displays and facilities.

Sadly one of the two resident pandas, Xin Xin, died last summer, leaving us with just one panda, Kai Kai, at the Macau Giant Panda Pavilion. This is unfortunate as pandas are very inactive. With two pandas, you had a much better chance of seeing at least one of them in action. Now with only one panda, odds are not great that you will see Kai Kai doing more than sleeping or laying around.

Kai Kai has always seemed too lazy in our opinion. He is active when being fed so if you happen to visit at these times, you will see him moving around a bit. Otherwise, you are most likely going to see him just laying around, doing nothing. We enjoy stopping by to see how he is doing (MOP10 for one hour). It is good way to spend 1/2 hour even if he is inactive, which is most of the time. During the winter months, they let him use an outdoor enclosure as well.

If you are interested to visit Kai Kai at the Macau Giant Panda Pavilion, this is a great opportunity to see a panda in a modern enclosure. Just make sure your expectations are realistic when you visit and try not to feel disappointed if Kai Kai isn't doing much.

Note: For those planning to visit Hong Kong as well, you might prefer to visit Ocean Park, which now has a Panda Village where you can see a handful of pandas, providing a much improved chance of seeing pandas moving around and active.

I have never seen a panda bear in real life, so as a huge fan of panda bears, I just had to make the trip to see them when I was in Macau.

The Macao Giant Panda Pavilion is located inside Seac Pai Van Park, Coloane (south of the Macau island). We visited on a weekday and arrived at the park at about 10am, and paid the MOP10 entrance fee (which is the cheapest thing you'll pay for a paid-attraction!). To our surprise, my friends and I were literally the first visitors to the park!

We were also fortunate to arrive just in time for the pandas' feeding time. We were told that pandas generally snooze immediately after feeding, so we hightailed it to their enclosure and spent 40mins of gawking and picture-taking...with no other visitors around (!!)

Xin Xin and Kai Kai were busy chomping on bamboo the whole time we were there...they barely even romp around. True to the advice given, they both flopped over (literally) the moment they were full and fell asleep. At which time, it would be several hours before they became active again. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have caught them in gluttony-action.

Getting there: You can take a cab from Taipa Village for under MOP50, the journey takes about 10mins. Bus #50 and 25 also go pass on the way to Coloane.

The main attractions of this place are the pandas, so don't expect the rest of the park to be mind-blowing. Just so you know, the park is walking distance to the A-Ma Temple, so you'll get to visit 2 attractions at one stop.

A-Ma Temple: From the park's exit, just walk along the road and cross the parking lot to the base of the Memorial Arch (barely a 3mins walk). There's a mini-bus which ferries people to the top of the hill (for free, and half-hourly) where the 20ft white jade A-Ma statue is located.

To get there you don't need shuttles etc. Go to the Lisboa hotel/Casino, to the left there is a lot of bus stops. Catch the 26A, it's 6 Mop each. The bus takes 35 mins and stops right outside the panda park. We got there at 2pm (closed for lunch 1pm_2pm). It is only 10 Mop each, over 65 is free. We saw the pandas first, they were sat feeding, we watched them for about half an hour. It was only us and 10 other people there. We got some brilliant photos. After we went to see the story of the Pandas, interesting. There are a few other animals to see and some nice grounds that are all very well maintained. The animals seem well cared for. Don't forget....you are not going to a full sized zoo, it's all about the pandas here. We would of happily paid more. We went in their little cafe and had a decent coffee, again very cheap. When you leave, cross the road and get the 26A bus back to the grand Lisboa.

The Panda Pavilion was initially not a part of our itinerary, we actually found it on the Tourist map and instantly decided we wanted to visit. And boy, was that a great decision!

The Pavilion is large, spacious, uncrowded (as most tourists do not go here) and has a large variety of animals to see including ofcourse the Giant Pandas and the Red Pandas.

Coming to the Star Attractions - the Giant Panda enclosure has 1 hour sessions. The enclosure is huge and houses 4 pandas- mumma, papa and two 1 - year old male siblings. It is preferable if you visit during their lunch hour (we took the 1pm session)- as pandas do only two things, eat and sleep, and they are much more fun to watch doing the former!

They are insanely cute and adorable with all their antics and incessant bamboo eating. Do not forget to take loads of photos and videos!

The Souvenir shop is a must visit. It has lots of cute Panda themed gifts which are very well priced. We came back with tons of coasters, magnets and luggage tags.

All in all, must visit if you would like to see Giant Pandas!

Getting to the Panda Pavilion can be quiet easy, even if you don't speak the language. When we got to Macau via the Hong Kong Ferry, we took a free casino bus to the Venetian Casino, (that is worth a look just by itself). There I asked the concierge for help. They gave us the directions to the pavilion and even wrote the instructions in Chinese for us to hand to the taxi driver. You will need a taxi to get there, but it doesn't cost much and they will accept HKD.

The Panda Pavilion is in a small little park area. The park itself is nice but that is about it. When you come through the main gates you will see the office on your right, this is where you buy your tickets. Tickets are about 10 MOP ($6 Australian).
From there you will directed to the Panda Pavilion.

There are two enclosures and hopefully a Panda in each. There was when we went. The whole pavilion is air conditioned, and when it is over 40 degrees outside with high humidity, the area was a paradise.

You are able to take photos and get right up to the glass. Take your time and look at both. They are wonderful creatures.

That is all that is there to see. If you want a nice little side trip this is not a bad one. You get away from the Casinos and hustle and bustle of Macau, and you get to see Pandas.

One bit of advice. Ensure that you get your taxi driver to come back for you or get the office to order you one. You end up a long way from the free casino buses and it is a long walk, especially in the heat. Trust me on that.
