Kunming Zoo
Reviewed March 14, 2012

Old school Zoo with new amusement park. Nice parks, not so good food, but the street food outside is excellent.

Usually I love zoos but I was not surprised with the condition of these place. It was during the winter so perhaps the condition was not supposed to be so great. Like one of the reviews who's on my side, I was disappointed and a bit sadden but the sight. It was what I expected in a chinese zoo but most of the animals were not very well taken care of. The cages were old, rusty and much too small for them. The bears were well-trained but they did not seem happy. All the amphibians and lizards had uncleaned tanks and facilities.

I did have a decent time with my friend because the environment wasn't too bad. But overall, i felt more sorry for the animals. it was ok but i would not recommended for anyone except kids. There are some decent family entertainment if you have never been to a zoo before but it depends on your standards. Overall, i will not return :( Sorry

This is a pretty standard Chinese Zoo, the animals are kept in cages small cages on concrete floors with nothing to entertain them. As I was guided around proudly by a friend, I was half way between crying for the poor brown bear in its tiny concrete enclosure which was pacing boredly up and down and hitting someone over the head who had allowed it to happen. I do like zoos and am a member of my local zoological society and have great belief in the ability of the zoos of the world to do good towards conservation (which this zoo is clearly not participating in). However, captive animals have a right to live in an environment that caters for their physical and mental needs. If you like animals then this is definately a place to avoid. I
