This was worth the journey and was the highlight of our Chengdu trip. In addition to just looking at pandas, there's also the red pandas (they look more like raccoons) and the museum. The best part was looking at the baby pandas.

Really an impressive visit. Beautifully presented gardens and park. The Pandas are easy to find and as cute as you expect. Really a fun afternoon.

The centre is well organized and there are many pandas to see from babies to adults. The description of the pandas is in both Chinese and English. Well worth a visit and get there early when the centre opens.

Loved the pandas. Lots of people though. Go early to see the pandas while active! They have a cafe, cinema, and plenty of pandas to see!

This zoo is the easiest way to see giant pandas. There are various natural enclosures that you walk between. Pandas are segregated by age and gender. The baby pandas are of course the most popular, and there is a long line to file past to...More

It’s probably the first place to visit when you arrive in Chengdu, and to see the Pandas up close and personal is amazing. However, the park is extremely busy so going early is a must and most of the attractions/museums inside the park were closed...More

The best time to go is to arrive by 8am (facility opens at 7:30am I think). Have your hotel check closing hours, I think it depends on the season, but I think it’s around 5pm (starts getting dark). The Panda gets their... More
