Shanghai Zoo, one of the best ecological gardens in the metropolis of Shanghai, has recently unveiled a rooster-themed itinerary to commemorate the new year.

The freshly spruced up peacock garden now boasts an area with vibrant waterfalls and tranquil lakes casting beautiful reflections.

The peacocks, quite shy and curious about their new home, have taken to pecking at the sand pile and basking in the sunshine.

Not far from the peacock garden, tourists are treated to a variety of galliformes at a walk-in aviary, including colorful domestic and wild pheasants. Children can also enjoy the chance of closely encountering these precious creatures!

Horticulture is always a highlight of a zoo tour. Wandering around the western part of Shanghai Zoo, tourists are exposed to a large-scale phoenix-shaped garden sculpture covering an area of about 300 square meters. Decorated with colorful pansy blossoms, the "phoenix" brings the perfect integration of vigor and vitality to the zoo’s beautiful surrounding landscape.

Directions:
No 2381 Hongqiao Road, Changning district, Shanghai
