Do you remember the last time you saw animals?
"Life isn't some cartoon musical where you sing a little song and all your insipid dreams magically come true. So, let it go." This is a quote fr om the animation "Zootopia" by Walt Disney Pictures. Perhaps, that was the last time that I saw a lot of animals spent time together, but that is just a movie. I can’t remember when was the last time that I went to see animals in a zoo or safari.
So, I think it is a very good opportunity that ‘Fall in Love with Hainan’ program take us to ‘Hainan Tropical Wildlife Park and Botanical Garden’, as this place reminds me of my childhood memories. Let’s see how is this place is like fr om my own experience.
First, we arrive at the driving area and the staff give us the electronic map and earphones. Fr om my opinion, it is a good idea and very useful which, I will tell you what this map can do:
1. It can tell you where you are now
2.The map provides you with the name and some details about the animals in each area.
3. It has five languages which consists of Chinese, English, Japan, Korean and Russian
4. You don’t need to find the map as it always stay with you and tells you where you are. I think this is the best thing about this map, as I don’t have to worry about getting lost lol.
Okay, let’s talk about the driving area, you will see a lot of animals here, such as, lions, black bears, deers, tigers. However, you can watch them from inside the provided vehicle, wh ere you cannot leave the vehicle or open the window.
Then, we stop at the elephant area to feed and play with him. I really had a good time there because this Elephant is from my country, Thailand. After playing with him for a while, the next stop is the horse area wh ere you can ride them or feed them too. So, that is all of driving area we will continue to hiking area.
Before we go to the hiking area, we are very lucky to have a chance to see a ‘Bamboo Dance’. After that we go to ‘Tropical Rainforest Flamingo Restaurant’ to have lunch and we enter the hiking area. The peacocks and parrots are waiting for us at the entrance.
The first zone is a ‘Monkey Mountain’ you will see a lot of monkeys here. They are walking and playing very close to you. The atmosphere here is also not bad, as you can find a lot of nice places to take photographs.
Walk out from the monkey mountain you will see ‘Liger’. Yes… it is a Liger not a lion or a tiger. It is a hybrid big cat. Besides, this place also has ‘Tigon’ too! At this area you will see a lot of crocodiles, wh ere you can choose to feed them with a raw chicken - only if you want.
We see a lot of carnivore animals. Now, it is a time to relax and see this animal that always looks very relax ‘hippo’. You have to see their faces and guess how they feel. They are very chill while having a poker face, aren’t they. Walking a little bit, you will see the longest neck animal in the world ‘giraffe’.
After we leave ‘Giraffe Paradise’ zone, we continue walking to see so many species of birds. However, there are too many of them which I already forgot all of their names maybe vulture, flamingo and more… what a pity!
Oh, I almost forget that it has a dinosaur park too. If you come here with children, don’t forget to take them to this zone. I think they would love there.
Here is what everyone waiting for ‘Panda World’. In this area, you will see the two cute giant pandas live in here. They always either sleeping, eating a lot of bamboos, or playing with their amusement facilities. While I was watching them I had a flash thought that I want to have a life like them. Anyway, their names are Gong Gong and Shun Shun.
Actually, this is not my first time to see pandas. The first time that I see pandas is at Chiangmai Zoo. I had seen two giant pandas from China their names are Chuang Chuang and Lin Hui. However, I think both of them are very cute.
Lastly, if you don’t have time to read all of the articles, you can also see the photos.
I do it for the people who don’t have time but want to find out more about this place. So, here is the Highlight of this place based on my own experience. Hope you enjoy checking it out. :)
