A fantastic Zoo

An excellent collection of animals in fairly natural habitats. Be sure to catch the sea lion show, the polar bear feeding, and the pandas while they are awake!

This was nice experience, although we visited there in the winter, it was a really nice experience for us, the zoo is well organized and it was pretty easy to find your way around, and there is a nice collection of animals as well.
