There are so many pandas there, and so cute! I didn't know panda could climb the tree. We saw three pandas rested on the branches of same tree, one of pandas rested on a branch which is about 15 feet above the ground. My children hug the panda about one minute (2000 yuan per person required donation). It is a... More

This is one of a couple of centres around Chengdu. I understand it is the smaller but better kept one. It is a really nice place to visit. We caught an early (7:00am) taxi and were here about 7:15. Ticket booths and gates opened at 7:30 and we were second in from a small crowd of thirty or so people.... More

A lovely place for a walk.... Beautiful scenery. We went on a sticky afternoon in July and pandas all inside, mainly asleep. None the less we saw some activity and had a great time. Go in the morning... As early as possible when hey are active and it is cooler if at all possible

It is a nice place, a nice garden with many chances to see giant panda and red panda. The only problem is given, especially during the summer days, by the outside temperature that means also few options to see pandas outside their air-conditioned enclosures. So it is important to choice the right time and the right period to see them,... More

We just visited the Chengdu Panda Base and had a great time! Thanks to our wonderful guide Philip, we went very early (7:30 am ) and basically had the park to ourselves for a short time. We were able to get very close to the newborn baby pandas without having to fight the crowds, and we also enjoyed a "show"... More

Absolutely once in a lifetime, so close to such amazing animals. The trainers experience was something special- yes it costs but once you have done it you will appreciate where the money goes. Do go with a guide we went with Sam through Buddhazen hotel, it means you know exactly where to go and when and there is less queuing... More

This is a wonderful place to visit and so close to Chengdu city. The pandas (and the red pandas) are a delight to watch. The surrounding park is beautiful. It was hot when we went but the staff seems to try to rotate the pandas in and out of their air conditioned enclosures so that everyone gets a chance to... More

While in China, one should visit the national animal and as the panda is so cute it is not a hardship. The Center is well organised and clean. The animals look well cared for.

Lovely research base where the giant pandas live peacefully and offer hours of fun to the tourists. However very disappointed and sad to experience the dishonesty of the taxi drivers waiting on the tourists at the door of the research base to drive them back to the city centre. They charge double price!!! Total disgrace!

There are more than 80 Giant Pandas. The place is super clean, absolutely great, with perfect order )recommend to go during the week), and if you are willing to pay aprox 400 USD on a donation, you may even have a Photo with a real Panda, that you or your kids will never ever forget. The personnel is fantastic, super... More
