  • This is one of the most beautiful zoos in the World. We actually stayed here with the polar bears for a couple of nights and it was simply breathtaking. I have to say that for me the best part was the bats. It was simply amazing to be in there with them while they flew near you in all directions; this was superb. Plan on being here for at least a couple of days, there is so much to see and you don’t want to miss any of it. It took us two days to see everything and then spent the third day seeing all the things we loved the most. The park is simply beautiful and very clean. All the animals look happy and they have plenty of room to roam around. I can say that the food prices are a bit steep for what it is so maybe a great choice to bring your own lunch. There are plenty of areas around the zoo to have lunch. We signed the kids up to feed the elephants and this was a cool experience for them. Overall highly recommend, beautiful place.
  • Fantastic experience and wonderful animal park. The hygiene and the health of the animals are really great. And it doesn't "smell" like a typical zoo. Every region is careful crafted with minute attention to details. Especially China's Zhong Yuan and Nordic countries. Food is arguably more expensive in the park than outside, so if you are visiting cost consciously, you should pack a picnic and bring enough water. Most of the places can be visited with toddlers and young children. There are enough ramps for reduced mobility person. If you like animals and find great value taking a stroll in the park, I definitely encourage you to take a subscription which will be covered with only three visits. You probably need two visits to see every animals in the park and have a try at every activity. Solar parking is a great idea to make use of the parking space while providing some shade for the cars.
