    Free children theme park.

    Worth to go be sure you get a package together with the circus shows in cheaper price.

  2. My fiancé and I both loved our day out here. We spent around 6 hours, especially loved the pandas (although would have loved to have seen the baby pandas despite them being advertised all over the zoo?!), koalas, feeding the monkeys (great value at 5rmb!), the safari, and generally enjoyed seeing the animals look happy in their large and well maintained enclosures. Highly recommend this.

  3. It was awesome , only even after hats, umbrella and stroller fan , the heat still got us ! We took the metro to get to hanxi changlong station . After that the free shuttle bus across the foot bridge to reach the safari park south gate. When you buy the tickets please take a picture of the show timings for reference as they don’t have a flyer. The shows are brilliant so plan your visit around them. We finished the safari by foot first and then went to safari by wheels later in the day when the heat increased. I highly recommend all animal feedings like tiger , giraffe , elephant, goat, horse etc. They have an animal nursery where you can make the tiger cub have milk too ! You can pat the koala bear in the koala section . The children’s amusement park area is made well and worth a ride or two. We actually went back the next day to the safari park for few hours again to finish it all !

  4. At Hanxi-Changlong Metro Station, you actually need to use Exit A (not Exit C) to get to the shuttle-bus station. We followed your advice and came out Exit C and were a little confused when there were no signs or anything referring to the safari park. Later found out that you actually need to come out Exit A and cross the road using the overhead walkway to the free shuttle bus stop (all clearly signposted from the exit).

    • Thanks your feeback,  I am sorry that make you a little  confuss,I will revise soon, I think I wll take some photos around the metro station, maybe it will more convenient for the tourist go there . Happy New Year ! Hope you have great 2015!
