Take metro line 4 from Beigongmen Station to it. The fare is CNY4, and the trip takes about 20 minutes. You can see Panda House inside it. Yes, you may spend around 3 hours there. :)

Bus is recommended. Walk from your hotel to Jiaodaokou East bus stop to take bus no. 107 to the zoo directly. At most 35min is needed and the fare is CNY2. For a distance of around 10km, you can take a taxi to reach with the fare of CNY30 or so.

Well, you can walk from the hotel to Jiaodaokou East bus stop to take bus no. 107 to the zoo in around half an hour. The fare is CNY2 per person.

How long does it take to finish touring the Beijing Zoo (including Aquarium)?

Jon ( China ) :7/16/2014 9:43:31 AM

My wife and I went through the zoo alone and that took around 2.5 hours. Add another hour for the aquarium. If you go on a Friday expect massive lines. Monday-Thursday 3.5 hours total. Friday will take you around 5+ hours.

from the hotel walk north and turn left. you can find a Friendship Hospital bus stop. take bus No. 15 for 5 stops to Xuanwumen East. Take subway line 4 to Beigongmen station, and leave from Exit D, you will find the north gate of Summer Palace.
to get to the Bell and Drum Tower from the hotel, you can walk north for about 90 meters and turn left at the second turning. turn right to Banzhang road after about 70 meters. go northward for about 200 meters and turn right. you will find a bus stop under the overpass after about 100 meters. there you can take bus No. 5 for 10 stops and get off at Gulou (Drum Tower) stop.

yes, they are close enough for you to see. but remember to visit the zoo in early morning before 10:00. or the pandas will go to sleep after 10:00.

Xenia ( Yugoslavia ) :12/26/2012 1:53:25 AM

Are they close enough so I can see them nicely? :)

Wendy :12/25/2012 5:14:09 PM

no, it is not possible to get close to the pandas, take pictures with them, or hold them in the Beijing zoo.
but it is possible in the Sichuan Panda base.

I just wanted to make sure that there are penguins in this zoo. I know that the ticket is separate but I don't know how much it costs. Also, could you tell me the timings for the zoo? Thanks.

As I knwo, you don't need to buy a separate ticket for the penhuins hall. The opening time for the zoo is 7:30-18:00 (Apr. 1 - Oct. 31), 7:30-17:00 (Nov. 1 - Mar. 31).

walk east along the road in front of the hotel for about 300 metes and turn right to the Xiaowujiqiao South bus stop to take a bus Te 9 Nei or 740 Nei to Xiao Cun Village. Transit to the subway Yichuang line to Songjiazhuang, and line 5 to Dongdan, change to line 1 to Xidan, and finally take the line 4 to Beijing zoo station.
or you take a taxi, costing about CNY 80.
