Small enclosures, lots of concrete floors, Miserable looking animals. Sleeping pandas, gorillas bored out of their brains. Locals tapping fiercely on the glass when an animal is close to it, lots of screaming and pointing. Food being thrown at the primates. Really bleak. For me...More

Main attraction of this zoo are Panda and red panda. Other animals were also there but we found Panda main attraction. Otherwise it is normal zoo. There battery operated cars are also plying on payment basis.

So depressing. Do not go here if you love animals - it will make you sad and angry. Despite signs everywhere saying ‘do not feed the animals’ there were local tourists throwing wrapped bars at the baboons, water bottles to the bears, popcorn and bits...More

West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and
entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of
residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle
pockets that have their own unique attractions. The
schools have formed pockets of international
communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang.
Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have
built up over the years to cater to these communities.
