This zoo is well laid out and the grounds are massive. Some of the enclosures are small but if others are much bigger. Entrance is £5 and the metro is right outside. We spent about 4 or 5 hours here and it never felt crowded....More

A huge zoo, and would definitely take up an entire morning or afternoon if you were desperate to fill the time. However the standards of animal care are appalling at this zoo. Seeing elephants with chains around their ankles is what I would have expected...More

Nice Zoo with pandas. Took about 2-3 hours to walk through. Restaurant in the Zoo. Pandas, Lesser pandas, elephants, flamingoes etc. Basic Zoo, good value for money. Metroes go there.

Very disappointing zoo (maybe I have been to too many good ones). The trees and gardens were lovely but the enclosures and exhibits are very old and tired. Terrible music blares out of speakers every 50m which must drive the animals bonkers. Glass in many...More

This zoo is easily accessible, as it has a metro stop of it's own that puts you right at the gate. It's located just a couple of stops before both Hongqiao Airport terminals, as well as the Hongqiao Railway Station. The entrance fee is cheap,...More

I was so sad and cried to see the condition of these beautiful animals in the zoo especially the enclosures are so small and dirty and hot for these poor animals. They look so sad and distressed and starved for food . I think the...More

Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
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.
