We had a great morning out at this Panda research Base, the whole area is very well set up and never felt crowded with visitors. The red pandas were ready to give birth and so were closed away, but the giant pandas were out in their large enclosures. We were there at 8.30am and so the pandas were quite lively.... More

Needless to say, this was our first stop in Chengdu and it didn't disappoint. I've read reviews that complain there are only a few pandas at the centre but we saw a lot of Pandas in various enclosures and I understand that there is actually around 80 in total across the complex. Got great photos and videos of numerous pandas.... More

We splurged for the panda experience and made a donation to this great cause and it was well worth it. Amazing facility, very well organized.

You'll see plenty of pandas out and eating during the feeding hour at about 8am. Do check with the hotel or hostel you're staying at for tours. I signed up for the tour from Hostel Lazybones which organised our trip there at 7am or so (i can't remember the exact time, but it was early). The private group was kept... More

It is a very nice park, very clean, although so many people. Go in the morning otherwise the pandas will all be sleeping. But in the morning before 10:30 they are up and eating and it is amazing to see them so near in a real big and nice "cages"

A great place to visit, loved the red pandas especially. The park is very well maintained. Make sure you organize transport by bus we went by the metro or via a planned tour. At the end of the metro transport was hard to find to the park by taxi and no one would take us back to the station.

The pandas exceeded our expectations. We only had one day in Chengdu, and even though our flight arrived very late the previous day (like 1 AM), we got up early to take a taxi (20 minutes from our hotel) and arrived by 8:00 AM in July. Pandas were still out, so we got to see them up close. We found... More

We went early and thank goodness, lots of people arrive later and the Pandas are out early. Also recommend the panda cuddle as an extra, well worth the extra. The park is beautiful also.

It's all been said before really, so I would simply like to say how great it was to see the juvenile pandas having such great fun, racing around their enclosure together, play-wrestling, tumbling, straining to keep up in 'follow-my-leader'... They all seemed so contented, it was wonderful to witness. :)
