Absolutely amazing! Although the fee to hold a baby panda is a bit expensive, I would do it again in a heartbeat. The money goes towards the research base, and they do fantastic work. Park is well laid out, clean and you can see the animals are well looked after. Toilets are clean, restaurants available throughout the park. If you... More

We went to the Giant Panda Breeding Research Base during our extended stay in China. If you have the opportunity while in China and don't go all we can say is your loss.

If you like pandas you will love them after visiting. The weather was extremely hot when we were visiting so the pandas were kept inside which ment you had to look through glass windows which constantly needed cleaning. However we thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would definitely recommend you visit.

This place is a true testament of what can be done when many people want to protect and maintain certain breed of animals. The Giant Panda Breeding Research Base is a massive area that ensures that pandas are looked after from birth to full maturity. There is ample space, animals are carefully handled and a great way to see them... More

We stopped in Chengdu on our way home from a trip around south east Asia and it was well worth it. The park is well laid out and the pandas seem relaxed and well cared for. During the summer months (i.e July/Aug) I would recommend getting there for 7.30 am - only a 5 minute queue to get tickets and... More

You can't go to Chengdu without seeing the Panda Base! It was really a lot of fun, especially watching the younger pandas playing together, fighting over the highest point in the tree and see red pandas up close.

Although I love the pandas, overall this place is overrated. Kind of get the feeling that I'm visting a zoo which defeat the purpose of this santuary

Best place to bring children visit pandas there, also place for children take panda toy back. I did saw a little girl told her mum how she love panda. But try to avoid the weekend and students holidays there, otherwise toooo crowded.

This place is awesome, and very authentic. There is no place to hold the pandas, but you will see a lot of them.

Get up early, take a taxi and plan for departing before 7am from the city, so you'd be able to go in early. Despite 8am is the official opening time, when we got there around 7.40 the gates were already open. Just a few dozen tourists were running around the huge park for a good 45 minutes before the tour... More
