You're at the Panda capital of the world, a visit to this Panda centre will complete your trip. It's highly recommended that you cover the whole of it as it increases your chances of capturing odd and funny movements of this lazy yet active breed. The park is accessible by bus and taxi. You may have to change the bus... More

A beautiful place among the nature. In Autumn there are the baby pandas, but in February there are already grown up, but they are cute. It is possible see many pandas, included red pandas. It is a good idea spending one day there. Reaching the research base is so easy, take Line 3 of the metro, get off at Xiongmao... More

Compared to major zoos we've visited in New York City, DC, San Diego, Miami and Chicago, the Giant Pandas and the far fewer Red Pandas were well tended and kept in immaculate environments. Maybe the animal's exclusively vegetarian diet of young bamboo and cool February weather spared the place of the occasional animal waste and rotten meat odor of a... More

Although it was a bit of an extravagance to make the 3 hour flight from Shanghai to Chengdu, I am so glad we did. It was a bit of a miserable day that we visited (February 2017) but it seems the pandas love that weather. During our 3 hour visit we saw something in the region of 35-40 pandas. There... More

I love visiting the pandas. I have done this 4 or 5 times already and have found each time unique and different. However, there is no real food here so pack a lunch and enjoy yourself!

This was the basis for our trip to Chengdu. Bucket list = ticked. You can get up close and personal with rhe Panda like never before. You cant touch or hold them at the moment but this is as good as it gets. Food at the base is pretty average so you might want to pack something for the trip.... More

Loved spending half a day at the Panda breeding center. Loved seeing them play and eat as well as seeing the nursery. BUT, be advised that it was the busiest place we visited in all of our China trip. Hundreds of thousands of people so patience will be required :)
