Considered a bit if visiting the zoo was a pleasant trip to spend for the weekend, at last decided to go and have a visit.
The park was a bit old, but unexpectedly it was fairly clean.
Entering the park, the first animal i saw...More
This was my 2nd time here and it was enjoyable enough. As with any zoo in Asia some of the animals are in good conditions some are not.
The penguins looked pretty poorly looked after for example and the monkeys too. But the tigers and...More
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
there are many safari parks around the world, but its a person who enjoys no matter where you go its the best fun, so we enjoy where ever we go, it was reasonable entrance fee and other shows, the circus was for 10rmb, and picking...More
It's nothing compare to Thailand and Africa, is ok for China and Hong Kong residents. Buy cheap tickets from hokou or Groupon. We went by taxi from border. It takes around half hour to reach, better to take metro if you have time. Most animals...More
While not a comprehensive zoo, there is a large group of big cats and bears. Siberian and Chinese tigers, lions, white tigers, tigons and ligers. There's a nice horse show with daring stunts. And a water show with seals, dolphins and swimmers. Lunch for two...More
Not bad , they making money just by let u pay the food for the animals , let u feeding them. That’s OK for some times but they nagging on you to buy the food that’s a bit disturbing. But nice for the kids to...More
Not a bad zoo but some of the animals are kept in pretty poor conditions, i know weve heard this time and time again but i didnt realize how bad they can be until i saw the tigers.
Its a nice zoo as far as...More
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

The zoo is at University Town station. So from Luohu (green line), I would go north to Laojie. Then change to go further north to Buji (blue line). At Buji, change and go west to University Town (violet line). It will take you about 45 mins to get there from Luohu.
When you reach University Town, use Exit C (stay on the road side of the exit) and go North on Lishan Road (i.e. go right at Exit C) until it ends at Lishui Road, then left/west short distance until it ends at Xili Road and finally go right/north a short distance and the entrance will be on the right/east of the street. It is about 1.4km walk (another 20 mins). There will be brown direction signs to the park at the level of street lights i.e. above your head.
So plan your journey well knowing that you would want to be there as early as possible so that the kids can enjoy all the animals and also see the shows without being in a hurry i.e. you can sit at times and rest.
There are other attractions inside the zoo for kids and adults e.g. inflatable balloon on the lake (kids love it), getting on elephant's back, the dolphins show, feed the bears. Some are free but others are for a small fee like 10 or 20 yuans. But well worth them if this is the first time to a big zoo.
I also suggest doing the visit on foot rather than by mini bus. you can then take all your time. Enjoy.
