Best for Families - Expert review of Beijing Zoo
With dog ownership on the rise, the Chinese are only recently becoming a nation of animal lovers. Seems it’s too late for some of the poor tigers, elephants and other creatures who endure Alcatraz-like conditions here, not to mention domestic tourists going to great, cage-rattling lengths to get a rise out of the sullen beasts. Conversely, the giant pandas are given luxury accommodation, housed in a much larger, better equipped complex that requires a supplementary ticket. The zoo park itself makes for pleasant wandering in warm weather, and the nearby Beijing Aquarium is actually pretty good.
Zoo entry is dirt cheap at just 15 RMB a ticket, plus an extra 5 RMB for the panda house.
