The zoo is in a beautiful park with excellent and well-kept exhibits. If you go at feeding time you can see multiple pandas munching on their bamboo. Also, there is a white tiger. Best of all when we were there, Chinese senors were performing various...More

One of the wonderful sights in China - for adult as well as children. Who hasn't harboured the wish to see a number of pandas in a location where they do not appear to be crowded. We saw six pandas during their morning feeding session....More

I would have to say I was disappointed in the zoo. Don't get me wrong the grounds and seeing the panda's was great. But the enclosures and conditions which the animals are held in was not very impressive. A lot could be done to fix...More

We didn't have a lot of time at the zoo so most of it was spent admiring the pandas. There were three young pandas and it was great to be fairly close to them and to watch them playing. The panda enclosure housed the adult...More

We had just a brief stop after disembarking from a Viking River Cruise. We went straight to the Panda area as they chomped down their morning bamboo. It was great to see them up close. There were 6 or 7 very active pandas including three...More

The highlight of this zoo is clearly the pandas. Our guide suggested going in the early morning or late afternoon and we were lucky to see quite a few of the outside romping around. The "campers" (enclosures) for all the animals were not well kept....More

During a brief stop in Chongqing, we made a targeted visit to the city’s beautiful zoo to see pandas. The large, well-kept Panda Enclosure is relatively close to the zoo’s entrance, so we can’t speak to conditions for other animals kept deeper in the zoo,...More

Good location, easily accessible, with lots of trees and an established zoo in a park. Lots of pandas, bears, different species of tigers and birds. But improvements needed in service, way-finding, better habitats design, animal welfare and visitors experience. Animal habitats need to be larger...More

I visited on a hot day. Most of the animals were hiding in their enclosures. Even the giraffes and zebras were undercover. I visited the pandas and only one panda was outside. Must have been his turn, or it was a staff member in a...More

We visited the zoo in the last october 2014. Our Viking guide told us the only way to handle Pandas was to go thru the ministry of culture and then you have to be a government sponsored zoo keeper. The Panda is a very... More
