We visited the Panda Breeding Research base as part of an organised Taste of China trip arranged by Virgin holidays. We were part of a group of 8 people who had added the Chengdu extension to the itinerary and we visited early in the morning when the Pandas were at their most active. We were lucky enough to see over... More

We spent at least 3 hours watching the panda eating and playing. This is a beautifully landscaped park as you walk around to see lots of pandas. More than I ever expected. Well worth your time to visit.

A huge park walked over 5 kilometers around roads and pathways. Pandas great and red really well cared for in surroundings very spacious and similar to their own habitation. Toilet facilities smart and well maintained

I just missed the cubs. It's a giant infrastructure, and you can see people are really engaged in stopping the extinction of the very interesting species.

Best to go early, the pandas are most active between 8-11am and you avoid some of the crowds. Large area to cover so make sure you wear comfortable shoes. There is a shuttle available between enclosures but we didn't see it very often. Then prepare for cuteness overload with the panda cubs!

We visited this place 2015/05/19 didn't see newborns (maybe because there where no) and the Kinder Garden Panda was also empty, anyway is worth the visit but try to get there early.

A nice relaxing place to visit. Great learning experience and it takes about 10,000 steps to cover so save your morning jog and come to enjoy the park here.

This was well worth the extra flight and day. There were lots of pandas, adults and younger ones, and you could get very close. They were adorable and we feel very privileged to have experienced them in a natural setting.

For nature and animal lovers is amazing experience, just a pity that from this january is cancel the program to hold and take a pictures with the baby pandas, it happen due some health problem with them at that period and the management/ government have decided to cancel the tourist contact with the cutest animals. Anyway the research is big... More

Get up early and hope the weather is not too hot and the Pandas will delight you! The youngsters are full of playfulness whilst the adults just lay back and eat - what a life!
