There isn't anything really special about this place. I have seen better Zoos, but it still can be a good way to spend the day out if you have nothing else to do. Some interesting animals to see, like the Pandas, which I didn't get to since their section was being renovated. I was pretty disappointed with that. Still, if... More

Before the visit, one told me the zoo is not worth to visit. But i just go, sad to say, almost half of exhibits are upgrading including giant panda! The closures are old and not maintain. Elephant look alone and not in good shape!

For my sister's birthday, we took a trip to China. We wanted to go to a zoo and we found ourselves buying tickets to go to Guangzhou's zoo. The only thing I can say was it was amazing. There were many animals and the pandas were super cute. My only concern is their restroom. It was a squatting toilet which... More

This is a great Zoo! Our family loved it and we loved how close you were to some animals. Being able to enjoy different kinds of animals was also really neat! We highly recommend.

This zoo was located very well, near the metro and central as well. The environment inside the zoo is very nice and there are plenty of different types of animals, elephants, fishes, Tigers, reptiles and much more. Unfortunately they were rebuilding many things and therefore we could not see all the animals, but it was a nice visit.
