Oh my goodness, the baby Giant Pandas are cute! This a wonderful conservation centre and a great opportunity to see such beautiful animals in a resonably natural habitat. Well done on such a facility Chengdu.

This location is a very nice to place to be able to experience nature and the Pandas inside the major urban city that is Chengdu. It is important to come in the morning because when the day gets warmer, the Pandas go inside or under cover to relax from the summer heat. There is a good selection of Pandas as... More

I didn't expect to see so many pandas. They feed them close to the fence, so you can get quite close. I didn't realise they hung around (literally) in trees either. They are the cutest, laziest creatures, so are easy to photograph - and you will take hundreds of photographs! The red pandas are also pretty good. The parkland &... More

We had the opportunity to visit the Panda Rescue and Rehabilitation Center - also in Chengu but up in the mountains near Dujiangyan - where they rescue and rehabilitate pandas from their ever shrinking wild habitat in the surrounding mountains. An excellent program where we were able to hand feed the pandas their "lunch" of carrots, celery and panda cakes... More

Giant Panda breeding site could hint for something gigantic and big as applicable to the big China. However, indeed the park is big but the Pandas site inside the park is small with only a few of lovely regular (not giant) Pandas and a couple of red Pandas. They are attractive when not sleeping. Be here early in the morning... More

Depending on where you are staying in Chengdu you can either take a cab (about 40-50¥ from downtown) or a bus (2¥ for each bus). I took the bus because it was more convenient for me and I was able to find the bus schedule online. I arrived at 9 am and there wasn't a huge crowds. The longest line... More

Spent a wonderful few hours here. Amazing how close to the Pandas you can get. We went at around 11.00 and they were very active and playful. Well worth a visit and easy to get to by Taxi.
