In the opening scene of Andor, Cassian walks past some people in strange transparent balls.

What were they doing? It kind of looked like something recreational but I can't say anything for sure.

Those are (alien) prostitutes. The episode's audio description makes it abundantly clear that they're 'on display' and given that this is the 'Leisure Zone', it doesn't seem likely to be a zoo.

"Transparent plastic bubbles protrude from the buildings on either side, displaying aliens who react to Cassian as he passes on his way down a set of stairs"

You may recall seeing something similar in the city of Amsterdam on a planet called Earth.

    Lol. I was trying to work out how to fit a "maybe a heavy petting zoo" joke into my answer without it being too sleazy
