The park is so beautiful and very well designed. I saw pandas receiving food. It was unique experience. It is really worth visiting. Pandas are really cute. Don't miss the red pandas. They are even cuter.

A reasonably accessible facility where you can see dozens of pandas of different ages in a few hours. Taxis are the best way to get to and fro, as there seem to be no direct buses to the city. Try to avoid the weekend crowds.

No visit to Chengdu is complete without a visit to the Panda centre. The Giant Panda centre is massive, well-looked after and a fantastic experience.

Chengdu was part of 3 week tour in China. My husband and I would not have picked this city or attraction if it was a bespoke tour. The facility was more like a zoo. There were many pandas in glass cages - lots in open areas with pandas, of course the three babies, plus the red panda breed-very different. The... More

We booked a taxi from our hotel early in the morning and got to the research base around 8am. It was nice and quiet and our group (4) enjoyed the beauty of the grounds before the crowds came in. There are two different "Panda Experience" packages where you can come into contact with the pandas - one in the nursery... More

We spent a morning at the Centre as part of a group tour of China. We saw many giant pandas, although they were mostly eating and resting, not much activity. No-one in our group paid to have the photo taken with a panda because of the very high cost. When we went to see the red pandas, they were much... More

There's no doubt that these are some of the most insanely cute animals around, so I won't spend long cooing over the improbability of all the gorgeous genes going to pandas. There are some great reviews on here about visiting logistics - listen to them. Get there when the site opens and head straight for the nursery - at the... More

If you could visit on a weekday, then there are significantly less crowds and you may actually get a few nice photos. The best enclosures are at the top of the hill at the moon nursery house where you will see the panda cubs and the young ones playing around. Most other pandas just laid around sleeping when we visited.

The day was at this site was the only morning it rained during my 15 day visit so not too many bears were out and about. Some seemed to like the rain and kept their eye on us. My most happy memories are of the baby bears being cared for inside in incubators. They are so small, you can hold... More
