This tour site is a must to visit when you are in Chengdu. It is the site that defines Chengdu and China. The pandas are very cute. The must visit station will be a special indoor area with glass panels to view the baby pandas. They are so adorable that it is difficult not to like them. There are also... More

Hotel porter recommended visiting first thing when Pandas most active and also to avoid crowds. Arrived 8.15am and no queue to get in or to see the Panda. Saw many Panda (including youngsters) out eating, climbing and playing and encountered very little people. The Panda are beautiful, amazing and very interesting but it was also lovely to spend the morning... More

Travelling to Tibet, we paid for a side trip to Chengdu especially to visit the Giant Pandas. Were not disappointed, saw them in natural surrounds, and six little babies! Also great to see the Red Pandas, beautiful little animals and peacocks. We visited in afternoon, which is less crowded.

Though I am not a huge Panda fan, I must admit that this was worth a trip. The whole center is huge and is very nicely laid out. I particularly liked the walk through the bamboo forests. There are more than 40 giant Panda's in the base, so you are assured of spotting them. Considering that the adult Pandas aren't... More

Visited the Giant Panda Breeding Research at the end of November. There are currently three babies from this year. Visit during the morning when the animals are more active. Must see!

This is a unique experience. Go in the morning when the many bears are active in spacious areas. It beats any zoo. Best to hire a guide for there is a fund of information to be had. Highly recommended -it would be a great pity to visit Chengdu and not visit here.

My second visit--this time end of November. Perfect timing--lots of babies (size of 1-2 year old human babies), almost no visitors--went on an overcast Monday. Anyone who said 'no big deal' is crazy--babies were active and hilarious--there were 27 3-5 month old cubs November 2016. there is a park tram for 10 yuan, but it pays to walk to discover... More

We depart from Chengdu early as 7am. By the time we got at the centre its about 9am something. So it is a good time to see the pandas. We spot a few pandas and take note that the area is huge. If you go with old people/elders, please bring wheelchair, not sure if the centre have wheelchair but they... More

Seeing the conservation effort of the Giant Panda restores one's faith in humanity. These amazing animals are always up for a show and can be seen clearly at this attraction. Baby pandas are generally there in the second half of the year and are incredibly cute. This is a must-see for all who come to Chengdu and China!
