This place is a tad too crowded as it is filled with tourists. There's a mad rush for the free tram rides and sometimes passenger safety is disregarded. Of course, we hardly see the pandas as there was a big crowd. Hopefully, something can be done to manage the crowd and make it more orderly.

Wonderful experience. Fun to watch the yearling pandas devour bamboo shoots. The tiny baby panda in the nursery was beautiful and a sight we will always remember. Lots of pandas to see. Took the metro to Panda Lane on line 3. Took Exit A and we saw the yellow bus. Had hoped to get to the park earlier, but we... More

Though awkwardly named, this is a good place to see a range of pandas at one place - with young adolescent pandas to mature ones. Going early (by 9.30am) is good because the pandas are more active and fun to watch

We had 6 hours ahead of us to visit Giant Panda Breeding Research Base. It took us almost 50 minutes from our hotel in the center of Chengdu. The park was very well organised, clean, it had maps etc. There was also a small vehicle that went up and down but you had to pay 10 yuan ( about 1,25... More

Amazing day, guide was brilliant, Pandas were incredible, feeding, washing and cleaning their pens. Got to feed the Pandas twice and were able to see them up close, much closer than normal visitors.

We so enjoyed this day...so many cute pandas! All ages and all active (well, as active as they can be). Just wish we could have taken one home.

Need to arrive early to beat the crowds. Is a large zoological park with multiple well designed enclosures so need to allow 3-4 hours really. Cannot get as near to the Pandas as I had anticipated but really enjoyable experience. Refreshments and good lunch spot available.

The Giant Panda Breeding and Research Base provides a glimpse into the work of maintaining both the giant and the red panda’s. Depending on the programme there is a mixture of adult and baby pandas to observe. The young ones at play and climbing trees is an attraction because panda’s are generally very relaxed animals with not a lot of... More

Let's be honest, this is why you most likely came here. My advice, you don't need a tour. It's time limiting, and not really worth getting a guide. Just make your way here and expect to spend 4+ hours here.

We took the subway (line 3) there to Panda Ave where there was a free shuttle to the Research Base. They'll sell you park tickets on the bus but you'll need to stop by the kiosk right near where you get off the bus to exchange these for REAL entrance tickets. Follow others to the entrance up the street. Once... More
