Bei’jing Zoo

•June 20, 2010 • Leave a Comment

One of the most depressing Zoos I have ever been too. Most of the animal cages were way to small and many animal showed signs of mental illness as result of being confined for too long. Perhaps the saddest exhibit was a set of three cages flanked with leopards and mongooses’ with baby chicks in the middle. Then I realized the baby chicks were not part of the exhibit. T_T

There was also an interesting american animal exhibit that featured foxes, racoons, and sleep-deprived college students on facebook.

The coolest exhibit featured lemurs and roosters in one cage constantly badgering each other. Defintely worth the 40 RMB to see it.

Undoubtedly, climbing the Great Wall of China is the coolest thing I have ever done.

From Wikipedia: The Summer Palace or Yihe Yuan (simplified Chinese: ; traditional Chinese: ; pinyin: Yíhé Yuán; literally “Gardens of Nurtured Harmony”) is a palace in Beijing, China. The Summer Palace is mainly dominated by Longevity Hill (60 meters high) and the Kunming Lake. It covers an expanse of 2.9 square kilometers, three quarters of which is water. The central Kunming Lake covering 2.2 square kilometers was entirely man made and the excavated soil was used to build Longevity Hill. In the Summer Palace, one finds a variety of palaces, gardens, and other classical-style architectural structures.
