This wonderful Panda research base far exceeded my expectations. The enclosures were relatively large and the animals seemed very well cared for. It was fascinating to see giant pandas of all different ages- tiny newborns, adorable, and still very small 1 year old cubs, older cubs and juveniles. The red pandas are a special treat. The park is pretty large... More

Most time and cost efficient would be to take a taxi. Costed about 35Yuen one way. Visited in July, and all giant pandas had to be kept indoors during the day to protect them from the heat. All in all the park is beautiful and even though the place is crowded with tourists it feels peaceful. There is a nice... More

One of the highlights of our China trip! We followed advice and arrived at 8.00am - it was really quiet and quite cool. We needed a map to get around the park and even then it wasn't that clear! However we stumbled on some enclosures in the centre and there were the pandas - lots of them, really active!! Got... More

Visited with children and while a little staged good overall experience for them. Suggest earlier in the morning to avoid the crowds and see a bit more activity from the feeding Pandas. A bonus of our early July visit was the new born son display in the nursery.

I found a memory card with plenty of holiday photos belonging to some couple, possibly from the USA. If it is you who lost it, please get in touch!!!

I loved this place. It was well laid out and spacious and did not feel too much like a 'zoo'. It felt like a lot of money was being spent to look after these ace animals.

We got there very early so we could catch the pandas awake and got rewarded for it, saw them all playing, eating and wide awake. The place mostly looks like they care for their animals but have seen a doc about it and something is questionable about the whole set up.But that is a different matter and the bottom line... More

Good experience, reasonably value and lots of easy ways to see the Pandas close by. Go early as the park gets very busy later.

Get there early. By 10.30am it was packed. Opportunities to see new born pandas in incubators through to juveniles and adults. The gardens are lovely too.

We visited in the summer, arriving at about 9.30 am just made it to see the young panda in the fenced-off area. Maybe they have just been fed. There were 7 of them together, amazing ! But after that most of the pandas were hide int he aircon area. Its just too hot for them to be outside. It was... More
