Lets Start: Wroommm….
We start early from Hotel.Reached park at around 10:30AM. Took Ticket from gate. No doubt bit impressive at entrance as it will the only big gate you will see at the location.We were accompanied by our friends. Along with Ticket we got a Map of Shanghai Wild Animal Park. The Park is divided in two parts: Walking area and Bus Journey. Along with that we have two animal shows. They have specific timing so you need to plan your route accordingly.
First Show: Large Square Performing Arts
Timing: 1:00 at Arena mountain beasts
Second Show: The Sea Lion Show
Timing: 10:00 , 15:15 at Sea Lion Arena
(Note: There are two more shows but they are occasional)
So obviously we missed the sea lion First show so now we need to come at 15:15.This arena is very near to exit. So we planned to see it at end. We started on the pedestrian area. Welcomed with big water pond with Flamingo. The weather was sunny but enough of trees are there so kids were enjoying a lot there. Lets check out the click there (Picture of Wild Animal Park).
Kid were more attracted towards the two section Zoo. One was “Animal Kinder-garden” and other was “New Born Babies”.
Till now we have seen a lot of animal now the search for Panda started. In map it shows two location for Panda. But after lot of walk when we reached one location it says ‘Panda House under construction’ so all Panda moved to the second location.We actually starved to see Panda at that point. So we started our direction to the second location of Panda.It was already 14:00 when we reach to Panda.There are ten Panda there in Zoo(All were sleeping when we reach 😥 after lunch). They all have names also :-D. Panda there is kept in most attention. Beautiful room, High quality food and guard all round to watch.As Panda is heritage of China and have a danger of Extinction so management has taken full care of this attractive and Famous species. Obviously Panda become most famous after “Kumfu Panda” has been released.No Doubt seeing Panda was a great experience.I was about stuck there seeing Panda but my friends pulled me from there.Ohh my Cuttu Cuttu Panda…
Bus Visiting Area
After Panda we moved towards Bus visiting Area. And first time i saw all Royal family moving around in open area and me being in Bus.feeling was amazing.There were five section
Oops no picture as White Tiger was not out in Sun. May be White Tiger was too possessive about its complexion 😉
We finished our full trip by 4:00 PM and no need to say was very tiring but very exiting. It was a nice experience at Shanghai Wild Animal Park, standing next to tiger, Panda, Water Show, Sanctuary and many more.
Keep watching space for our up-coming excitement for Hangzhou trip…
