The Zoo looks like a European zoo in the 1980s. Nice place for a walk. It is a kind of mixture between a fair und a zoo.

The main attraction of the zoo are definitely the two Giant Pandas, though there really is a wide variety of other animals. We also very much liked the Butterfly exhibition (temporary) and the part with the fishes and penguins. However, we were shocked when we...More

Shanghai Zoo is easiest way to see Giant Pandas ( in Shanghai). they have 2 of them. Zoo itself seems to be like little bit forgotten and vegetation is overgrown, but this may be just the way Chinese are doing it. People expecting western standards...More

Gubei / Hongqiao / Minhang
West of Shanghai’s better-known business, cultural and
entertainment centers, lies an expansive area of
residential neighborhoods peppered with lifestyle
pockets that have their own unique attractions. The
schools have formed pockets of international
communities throughout Gubei, Hongqiao and Minhang.
Quite a few entertainment and shopping centers have
built up over the years to cater to these communities.
