Arriving at the zoo mid-day/early afternoon is not an ideal time to see the animals as most were in siesta mode. This include the tigers, pandas and a few of the bears along with the other animals. The park was an average to above average experience until seeing the elephant exhibit. There were a group off in one section meandering... More

Was disappointing, to visit a zoo and find that not many of the exhibits on display, This place boasts 6000 animals , well not on the day I was there, ducks and wild birds yes , but not much else, This zoo is not much bigger than London Zoo the exhibits are in cages that are cramped and bare ,...

This place is big and expensive. The get-through-the-door price is 130rmb but everything else from taking the close up tour bus through the safari part to feeding animals to riding animals to the fair to even shows are extra an sometimes a lot extra. Case in point: The Big Top circus that is running now.... 90 to 150rmb depending on... More

About an hour on the metro from downtown, we caught Line 2 and then transferred to Line 16. Leaving the metro station, we were bombarded with offers to drive us the approximately 2km to the park. We ended up catching a taxi. The ticket process was a little confusing (kids prices based on height). The park has very little English,... More

Animals looked sad, especially the donkeys and monkeys.. Wonder if they were beaten.. I went there because we could hold a baby tiger but the website of the park didn't inform that it wasn't possible this week. I went there twice for the baby tiger but no one was there. I called the park but they didnt speak english. Really... More

This was a great visit on our last day in Shanghai. It was a wonderful place that seemed popular with local families on a pretty day. Easy to get to using only the Metro and a rickshaw. Kind of expensive park fee but we came for the experience of holding a baby tiger and to see the pandas while in... More

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
