Like others that have visited the giant pandas in Macau I am torn about the conditions under which the pandas and monkey live, but I still paid the 10 MOP ($1.50AUD) to enter and look at the pandas, which I really enjoyed seeing. It really only takes about 45 minutes to see the panda's, monkeys and ostrich and was only about a 10 minute taxi ride from our hotel The Venetian. The pandas were chomping away on leaves and then sleeping in the short time we saw them. One of the monkeys was making the most horrendous noise when we were there, sounded like a siren! I did notice that they are building a new enclosure at the venue, I hope this is for the monkeys as the concrete cages where they are housed now is not acceptable. We saw the funniest thing, one of the ostrich was doing a 'no.2' and it's quite a unique thing to see!
