    Cute Pandas!
    Arrived after lunch so both pandas were napping. We decided to wait a while and thankfully, they woke after about half an hour or so and we were treated to their cute antics - the way they handled their bamboo snacks really reminded me of Kung Fu Panda! Besides the pandas, this place has a few other animal exhibits e.g. red pandas, lemurs, flamingos etc. Everything will take you max 1 - 1.5hrs. Admission is free so what's not to love?

    Four lovely pandas
    Macau's panda refuge is a short bus ride away from the glitzy Cotai casinos. The pavilion is at the city's serene countryside and remains unspoiled. Seeing the cute, chubby creature eating or sleeping is an interesting experience, adults and kids alike. Free admission.

    A wonderful treat to see the giant pandas actively eating during our visit!
    This was amazing. Three of the four pandas were actively eating or moving around. Only one slept the entire visit. The pandas are so dang cute and our group captured tons of pictures of these adorable creatures. I just wish I could've stayed all day to enjoy their adorable-ness!

    Where you can see pandas and other animals for free!
    Perhaps not many people have seen pandas for real. Well, here at the Macao Giant Panda Pavilion you can see some of them for free! You'll love their red panda, black and white pandas, monkeys, birds, etc. The place is well-kept. There's also lots of space for children to play in, a souvenir shop, a lake, and so forth. Highly recommended!👌

    A lifetime dream to see pandas - so worth it. Adorable.
    Incredible opportunity to view pandas. The pandas were playful and enjoyed their meal while we were there. We could clearly see both pandas, and there was plenty of time to take photos and watch them. The park is clean and well laid out. The animals and plants all look well cared for. We took a taxi from the ferry terminal to the panda park, then caught a local bus back to town.

    Better to go early.
    We had an enjoyable time watching the panda, red panda, the monkeys, birds, etc. and the lady guard who was friendly and helpful. The weather was very hot but it was fine as we got there a bit early, then about 3 buses of flag waving tourist came so it got loud and overcrowded pretty fast.

If you love nature and want to learn more about animals, then visit the Macau Zoo. It is located in the Seac Pai Van Park, where you will find a lot of greenery, picnic areas, and playgrounds. After having a morning picnic, I wandered around the park. It is designed as a giant fan occupying 3,000 m2 and its goal is to coexist with the nature surrounding it. Part of the Macau Zoo is the Giant Panda Pavilion, famous for being the home of giant pandas and red pandas – a species I didn’t know! The pavilion is surrounded by a 600 m2 yard, has 900 m2 of indoor exhibition rooms, and 2 parts of 33m2 for activities, all creating spectacular images never to be forgotten!

Make sure to have a Macau's number, the staff will not help you to call a taxi even knowing that you have little children. To call a taxi you need to have a Macau/HK number, roaming won't work.

Animals at this exhibit are healthy and great Pandas. I've seen the pandas but will never go back, had really bad experience with the staff here.

I'm afraid too many past reviewers have focused on the Seac Pai Van Park, which is actually a separate attraction, not particularly special. However, the Panda Pavilion is an excellent opportunity to see pandas, for a very cheap price of MOP10.

We were very lucky on our recent trip finding both pandas very active, feeding on bamboo and being very photogenic. This was an excellent experience, one we will remember for a long time.

However, you do have to be realistic when visiting animal attractions, especially with the likes of pandas which are very inactive animals. Thus, there is a good chance that during a visit, Xin Xin and Kia Kia (the pandas) will be sleeping or inactive. Obviously this can leave people disappointed when you really want to see the cute pandas playing, eating or close-up. So do make sure your expectations are set correctly and that you realize there is a chance that you won't see them at their best. Remember, they are pandas, right!

We're not sure what their feeding schedule is but we visited during session A (10-11am) during our last trip. They were being fed and were, thus, very active during our visit.

If you are visiting Macau with children, this is an excellent attraction, just 5-6 minutes ride from the Venetian, City of Dreams and Galaxy facilities in Cotai.

There are a few additional animals and play area at the Seac Pai Van Park where you find the Giant Panda Pavilion but they are just ok, not worth targeting in Macau. However, if you are interested in seeing pandas you might as well let the kids enjoy the rest of the displays and facilities.

Sadly one of the two resident pandas, Xin Xin, died last summer, leaving us with just one panda, Kai Kai, at the Macau Giant Panda Pavilion. This is unfortunate as pandas are very inactive. With two pandas, you had a much better chance of seeing at least one of them in action. Now with only one panda, odds are not great that you will see Kai Kai doing more than sleeping or laying around.

Kai Kai has always seemed too lazy in our opinion. He is active when being fed so if you happen to visit at these times, you will see him moving around a bit. Otherwise, you are most likely going to see him just laying around, doing nothing. We enjoy stopping by to see how he is doing (MOP10 for one hour). It is good way to spend 1/2 hour even if he is inactive, which is most of the time. During the winter months, they let him use an outdoor enclosure as well.

If you are interested to visit Kai Kai at the Macau Giant Panda Pavilion, this is a great opportunity to see a panda in a modern enclosure. Just make sure your expectations are realistic when you visit and try not to feel disappointed if Kai Kai isn't doing much.

Note: For those planning to visit Hong Kong as well, you might prefer to visit Ocean Park, which now has a Panda Village where you can see a handful of pandas, providing a much improved chance of seeing pandas moving around and active.
