we got there quite early to see the pandas feeding, and were impressed how well-kept the park was and how well-cared-for the pandas looked. Their enclosures are vast and very natural looking. The panda nursery has the "aaah" factor - sooo sweet! I paid to do the close encounter panda experience which cost a 2000 yuan (cash only) "donation" but... More

Unlike anything anywhere in the world. You can get up real close with the pandas and the panda babies are pretty cute... its a massive park. 2-3 hours is about all you need...

We were the first ones in the gate early in the morning and were able to watch the mothers and babies reacting with each other. The unexpected part was the very lovely lake with a beautiful garden which we enjoyed enjoyed relaxing and having coffee and tea.

We visited the Panda Breeding Base during the national holiday of China which meant there was always going to be a lot of people. However, I would still suggest that even if visiting outside peak times go as early as you can! The Chinese tourists are not known for their good manners so if you want to see the pandas... More

The Panda base was real fun. We were lucky and had a beatiful sunny day. The par is really nice, lots of bamboo, wide paths and well maintained. The animals are hilarious the way they present themselves. We recommend this park to everyone traveling to Chengdu.

My husband and I took a taxi from city center which only took about 30 minutes and about 30 yuan. No tour guide nor private transfer needed on this trip at all! The day was cool and not crowded both of which would have made the morning unbearable I think! Even with small attendance at the Center, viewing can be... More

It's busy but a huge area. Easy to see pandas close-up. Be wary of dodgy taxi drivers when you leave. Only take a meter taxi, they are great guys.

My wife had the photo experience (I think they call it panda keeper experience). I stayed outside. But we went early in the morning, which I highly recommend you do the same, and got to see a lot of pandas at play and eat. They sleep in the afternoons apparently. It was very difficult to find the places within the... More

What a beautiful place! Absolutely worth to visit! We arrived early in the morning and it was great. There was not too many people yet and pandas were active and super cute. My family visited with a guide who knew the entire park and was able to show us the giant pandas and red pandas, the nursery (adorable). He also... More

We visited the panda base and weren't disappointed. We visited the nursery and saw a number of tiny pandas in their cots. We saw one being weighed and fed. They position the staging to maximize your chances of viewing the pandas. we got some fab photos.
