For the Kids: Beijing Zoo


Originally called the Ten Thousand Animal Garden, the Beijing Zoo was built in 1908. The zoo is also a center of zoological research that collects and breeds rare animals from various continents. It's famous for its giant pandas, but there are many other species, including Sichuan golden snub-nosed monkeys, Manchurian tigers, yaks from Tibet, enormous sea turtles, polar bears from the North Pole, kangaroos from Australia, and zebras from Africa. The grounds offer cultivated flower gardens with stretches of natural scenery, including dense groves of trees, grassland, a small stream, and lotus pools.

The Beijing Zoo is located in the northwest corner of Beijing, not too far from the center.
