I'm sorry to say but China in general isn't the best country for wild life. They cherish the Giant Panda but other animals is less well treated. Fairly small enclosures and animals that look very sad. I don't really recommend the experience

Yes, this place is better than most zoos I’ve been to in China but that isn’t saying a whole lot. The animals didn’t look happy, their cages and environment were small and cramped, and dingy. We were walking along and this guy placed a snake...More
