The pandas = much ado about nothing, as I expected. But we didn’t go for the pandas. And there is certainly much more to Pairi Daiza than those black and white failed bears. What is it with this obsession with those spoiled brats? Anyway, anyone who arrives in Parai Daiza usually immediately races towards the panda grotto. Just stay away from that part of the park and you’ll see so much other nice things. Not a lot of animals but more than enough to keep it interesting (it’s not a zoo, it’s a park)
When we were visiting there was still quite some construction going on. If I would do it again I would advice visiting next year when everything should be finished. Easy to spent a whole day. We went last day of June when school was still supposed to be open but there were about a gazillion kids anyway. If you like some peace & quite and want to hear anything else than the sound of kids yelling at the top of their lungs you might want to avoid school holidays also. But do pay a visit.
