    I m surprised there is no thread on Chimelong yet. Out of the picture they have been building one of the biggest zoos in the world with a network expanding globally. It is on my wishlist to visit but I was wondering if anyone has been there and what their experiences were (including logistical information on how to get there the easiest).

    I have been there like twice or thrice(or more) because it is very near to me , like 2-3hours. It is a very good zoo in term of Asian quality(see my thread) and it is very big.Definitely a must see in Guangzhou.Chimelong also have a large aquarium in Zhuhai which include whale sharks.

    I was told there is a metro stop before the entrance, do you know if that is correct?

    Ok then my information might be incorrect as I was told the Metro-stop is at the South gate.
