Manchurian Tiger Garden is located in the Songbei Development Zone on the northern bank of Songhua River, and it borders the famous tourist resort-the Sun Island. It is the only and largest natural garden of the Manchurian Tigers.
Siberian tiger is one of most endangered animal in the world. In the 1980s, it was listed as one of the first-class national protected animals of China. In order to preserve this valuable species, the Siberian Tiger Park was built in 1996.
The Park is located in Songbei District and next to Sun Island. It covers an area of 1,440,000 square meters (355.8 acres). It is the largest natural park for wild Siberian tigers in the world at present. The park enjoys a favorable foundation for ecotourism and splendid scenery and it is an ideal place for holiday and leisure. It is a popular tourist attraction in Harbin.
The large park is divided into ten areas, including the young tiger area, the mature tiger area, the king tiger area, Lion area, a walking area and a platform for viewing the tigers. Unlike common zoos, the Siberian Tiger Park exchanges the roles of visitors and animals. Except in the walking area and the platform for viewing the tigers, tourists must take a bus encircled by wire mesh to all the other scenic spots while the tigers roam freely in the fields. There are over 800 purebred Siberian tigers here, with 100 available for visitors. The park is not only the home for the tigers but also white tigers, lions, lynx, leopards, and black pumas as well as Bengali tigers.
For visitors who love to see exciting activities, the Siberian Tiger Park is also a perfect place. In addition to viewing the tigers walking leisurely in the open-air, visitors can buy poultry or animals to feed them, including ducks, chickens, and even cows. Park employees will set the living animal free among the tigers, and visitors can see the unique live action of tigers preying upon it.
In addition, there is a free Popular Science Exhibition Hall in the Park, in which people can see information on tigers in pictures and samples as well as in words.
The photos of the tigers are printed out as postcard and stamps. There are special souvenirs for your family and friends.
