A well kept and clean zoo, however it seems like its always under construction. Its centrally located so you can take the Metro subway and the front gate is right there. A quick tip, bring vegetable like celery or something long and green to the...More

Whilst some enclosures are great, with space, shelter, water areas for the animals housed in them, others are not. It is obvious that they are modernising and improving but frustrating to see some areas are still in the style of bad zoos. Family friendly, lots...More

Sadly, a lot of animal houses were under construction, including the panda, kangaroo and zebra. Furthermore, it seemed a bit strange to see the racoons having a huge space and, for example, the elephant only a small space. However, for only ¥20 it was nice...More

I did think it a little odd that raccoons got a huge exhibit and the big cats were squeezed into cages so small I wanted to cry. Overall, the zoo is large and beautiful. There were two giant pandas there when we went.

We went here to pass a day. This zoo is poor to average. The pens for animals are small and lots of stairs. IT IS NOT STROLLER FRIENDLY. I ended up carrying the stroller 75% of the time because of the number of stairs. We...More

Everything was under construction, no big pandas seen, and really few animals overall. Taxi drivers didn't even know the place and they don't speak/understand English at all! Saw two red pandas, beautiful creature but not enough to describe as an useful / nice experience!
