We spent a morning at the Centre as part of a group tour of China. We saw many giant pandas, although they were mostly eating and resting, not much activity. No-one in our group paid to have the photo taken with a panda because of the very high cost. When we went to see the red pandas, they were much... More

If you could visit on a weekday, then there are significantly less crowds and you may actually get a few nice photos. The best enclosures are at the top of the hill at the moon nursery house where you will see the panda cubs and the young ones playing around. Most other pandas just laid around sleeping when we visited.

The day was at this site was the only morning it rained during my 15 day visit so not too many bears were out and about. Some seemed to like the rain and kept their eye on us. My most happy memories are of the baby bears being cared for inside in incubators. They are so small, you can hold... More

We arrived via car (through our hotel) to the hotel we were staying in. That evening we walked to the Base in the hope that we would get registered and maybe have a small tour but we had no such luck and were advised to come the following morning. When we arrived the following day the people there seemed confused,... More

Best to take the tram, ticket is 10 RMB, especially if you are pressed for time. Morning visits may find more active pandas as they do like to sleep to conserve their meager energy intake from the bamboo leaves. You can take the tram back but most people eventually wind up walking down as they visit different panda enclaves as... More

On a fine October morning, my husband and I traveled to the Giant Panda Breeding Research Base. The Research Base is larger than we imagined. An entire day easily can be spent exploring the beautiful compound. Be sure to obtain a map of the grounds and wear good walking shoes. There are tickets to purchase at the entrance for a... More

We had been here a few years ago, but were very happy to revisit this lovely garden facility. This is probably the main resin people visit Chengdu, and its absolutely not to be missed

What a wonderful park and mission. With 70 pandas all in a safe and happy habitat, this makes for a great day of walking and observing. The pandas were sleeping, eating, tumbling -- you name it. We had a guide, which was helpful for avoiding crowds and learning about the pandas, but I do think this is an easy tour... More

We got to the Research Base before 8.30 and it was very quiet so no fighting through the crowds to see the beautiful pandas. All busy eating bamboo leaves except the babies who were all asleep having had their bottles. Aw - so cute. Brilliant educational film about the Base. Excellent morning visit.
