A great place to visit and get a close up view of pandas daily routine. Best to go early in the morning as that's their feeding time and the toddler pandas age 8mths old playtime which you'll enjoy seeing their antics playing with each other and interacting with their keepers.

This is of course a must for any visitors to Chengdu (and China). This is the best choice around. Try to go early as possible (they open at 8:30), Panda's love quietness, and if you go too late you will have to walk with noisy crowds and panda's just hate that. tip: as soon as you get in the park,...

Not only worth going to see the pandas eat bamboo in their clever way, but also the red pandas who are much more active.

Grounds very nice - easy view of Pandas. That said it's really just a zoo where the animals are all Pandas.

i would recommend to go there early in the morning because of two things: 1. pandas get up earl, they they start there breakfast and this is time of there most activity. 2. at midday a lot of tourists arrive to pandas base and become noisy.

So much fun and so easy to do. Just take a taxi there and back. There are many, many Giant Pandas to see. And don't miss the smaller red/brown pandas — they are super cute, very active, and they ran around right next to us on the walkways!

We took a taxi up to the Panda Center from the center of town and it only cost 32 RMB with the meter on. We got there very early because that's when they feed the Pandas and they are the most active. There is a trail that goes all through the place and you are sure to be able to... More

If you visit Chengdu and you like pandas, this is the place to see them! The grounds are like a garden and the enclosures are about as panda friendly as they come; lots of climbing structures and shade. There is a red panda enclosure in which you can walk through and you share the walkway with the little guys pandas... More
