One of Chiang Mai's most popular attractions for locals are the pandas, Chuang Chuang and Lin Hui, and their cub Lin Ping, born in 2009, who are the stars of Chiang Mai's extensive zoo. There's an extra admission fee to see the pandas (100B adults, 50B children), as there is for other new attractions -- the snow dome (adults 150B, children 100B) and the aquarium (adults 450B, children 330B). Open-sided buses and elevated trams are on hand to run visitors around -- the site is too large to see everything by walking. All in all, it makes for a good day out with kids who may be wilting from temple overdose.
