I have never been to a zoo in Asia so unfortunately, I cannot compare my experience to that of a Chinese zoo. I found generally that the park was clean and the animals appeared to be well cared for and treated fairly. That said, I did see three things that made me feel slightly uncomfortable... First of all, my partner... More

Better to visit in summer. Good place, but it so far from city center, around 2 hours by metro. The price is high, around 200 rmb, and for every attraction you also have to pay money inside. Safari tour must see!! And lemur island is very cool

This was worth going out of the inner city of Shanghai for. There was plenty to do and it is a fun day. We rode the camels, which really takes only about a minute, but it is only £3 each. We fed the elephants, again for about £3. Just be aware riding the elephants and feeding the hippos finishes at... More

If you like animals then this park is worth a visit. They take good care of the animals. My favorite were the pandas.

There take the feeding bus ( extra 40 RMB).The feeding bus ( caged bus) tickets are available inside the bus station only and not at the main... More

We got to hold a baby tiger, feed tigers, feed giraffes, lamas, elephants, hippos, get kissed by a sea lion and hold a parrot. A great interactive experience. The safari bus moves quite quickly past animals but is cool as the bears and tigers come right up to the bus and even cling onto the bars. Unfortunately we went on... More

Whilst this has a metro station named after it, it is not actually there. You need to take a bus or taxi after arriving. The pandas are great, but the wide range of other animals is also a highlight. Particularly great was the number of different baby and young animals. However the animal enclosures are not great and the shows... More
