During a brief stop in Chongqing, we made a targeted visit to the city’s beautiful zoo to see pandas. The large, well-kept Panda Enclosure is relatively close to the zoo’s entrance, so we can’t speak to conditions for other animals kept deeper in the zoo,...More

Good location, easily accessible, with lots of trees and an established zoo in a park. Lots of pandas, bears, different species of tigers and birds.

There are all sort of animals to see (Rhinos, Bengal Tigers, etc) but the stars are the Pandas. We spent about 45 minutes viewing the different sections of pandas. Just couldn't get enough of them

This is more like a beautiful garden area that happens to have animals as well. Of course, the Giant Pandas were quite good too.

Impressive ZOO albeit past it's prime. Could use some modernization but hey, who doesn't like animals?

It's a Zoo where you can see Panda Bears. I think Zoos are becoming a thing of the past ... as they should be ... and this Zoo had an intact infrastructure and well-kept landscaping. Same type of vistas of all Zoos I've been to....More
