We visited this popular zoo specifically to see Pandas. They not only have the Giant Pandas but also the Red Panda which is about the size of a raccoon. The Panda enclosures are in a pit so you can look directly down onto the Pandas...More

The main attraction of the zoo are definitely the two Giant Pandas, though there really is a wide variety of other animals. We also very much liked the Butterfly exhibition (temporary) and the part with the fishes and penguins. However, we were shocked when we...More

A visit to the zoo was a great opportunity to see the pandas (only 2 of them) and other animals but was saddened that the zoo was not in a very good condition for the animals- concrete blocks, often covered in mould.

Interesting layout. Fair variety of animals. We expected more from the Giant Panda exhibit. Golf carts available at a fee for transportation to different areas.

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.
