We went to this zoo with our tour group just to see the pandas. The pandas are a very short walk in from the entrance. The zoo looked very well maintained, even though we only saw a tiny portion. It was amazing to actually see pandas in China, even though we have pandas at home in the zoo in Atlanta.... More

Ten Pandas are available for viewing, including two twin cubs. The cubs were in constant frolic and play. It was so much fun watching them. The adult pandas were all in separate enclosures and were all chowing down on bamboo. Some said this zoo looked rundown, but the place looked good to me and the animals looked well cared for....

Pandas there looked very happy and healthy. Other animals looked ok too. Not as clean as western zoos but no sign of diseases. There's a water park in middle which looked disused and uncared for. Worth a visit if you like pandas.

We hit the zoo early in the spring season, so it needed some tlc. We were lucky enough to catch all the pandas moving. They also have a wide variety of other animals, but we only had a limited time.

Old and a bit run down in the heart of a bustling city. They have hippos! The monkey exhibits were my favorite.

One can't avoid feeling sorry for the animals. Better not to have a zoo than to have it like this. The zoo was empty on a weekday. Entrance fees are ridiculously low, which may be part of the problem

We travelled with a group organised by Sinorama tours and because of our strict scedule we didn't spend much time in the zoo. Our goal was to see pandas and so we did. All of them were outside so we could see the pandas very good. Unfortunatly we didn't had the time to visit more of the zoo

Tthe upstream Yangtze River cruise from Jingzhou ends in Chongqing. Aside from the super spicy hot foods in Chongqing (they'll burn your palate), the Chongqing zoo has a special Giant Panda zoo where a number of the giant pandas were on display. We came at about 10:00 AM and the pandas have to be awaken from their lair since it... More

We didn't get enough time here unfortunately to see all of the zoo so we concentrated on the Giant Pandas and we weren't disappointed. We were luck enough to see most of the pandas eating and playing. They were wonderful. It certainly was a great experience.

This was my first time seeing these beautiful animals and they put a quite a show. As much as I was disturbed to see these wonderful pandas behind bars , I had to admit they seemed oblivious to us the tourists and the bars as they happily chomped their bamboo. We learned how difficult it is for them to survive... More
