Pandasia, a palace for pandas

By Xinhua

Holland's elaborate panda enclosure that will be used to welcome Chinese pandas Wu Wen and Xing Xia, is almost complete.

The panda park, dubbed "Pandasia" has been built in the style of a traditional Chinese palace, costing 7 million euros (more than 50,000,000 yuan).

Covering 9,000 square meters, the park contains a living area, refrigeration house for bamboo, labor house, clinics, dining room and a gift shop.

An agreement to bring the two pandas to Holland for research purposes was signed during King William Alexander’s visit to China in 2015.
