Basically this location will be easier for most of the tourist to visit as this location is much closer to the center of Chengdu, around 40mins and so, you should arrive there. If you do not want to HUG/HOLD them as the purpose, this is the location that you can think about it. Otherwise, you may need to go to... More

Chengdu has wholeheartedly adopted pandas as their local symbol, and after visiting the research centre, it's easy to see why. We used a private guide, Haba Yefei, throughout our visit to Chengdu, and he was great! Look for his TripAdvisor reviews. I never imagined I'd see so many pandas in one place - they live in age-segregated groups with as... More

We visit the Panda Breeding Base and we had high expectation and ended up much better than expected. Park was not crowded (we went early January) which allowed us to spend enough time watching these adorable animals. There is an option to feed and take photos with the pandas but is currently under renovation and it quite expensive (around US$300).... More

My friend and I went here in January and I don't know whether it was so quiet because we went in the middle of winter or that we were there at 8am on a Monday morning but it paid off. I didn't expect to see as many giant pandas as I did and due to the lack of people we... More

So much fun. English and Chinese descriptions. Various ages of Pandas. The babies were the best, just over 100 days old. Value for money.

Presently, Sichuan, as the hometown of giant pandas, has three pandas breeding and research centers, they are located in Chengdu, Ya'an and Du Jiang Yan, the one in Chengdu is very convenient for people to visit, close to the downtown, after a whole morning in the base, you can still have enough time to visit the downtown in the afternoon...

We arrived when they opened and didn't realize that we had spent 4 hours by the time we left. They feed the pandas at around 9am and they get more active at that time. The surprise was the red, or lesser, pandas. even when the big guys were still sleeping, the red pandas were quite active. This is well worth... More
