We weren't sure what to expect here. Having heard that these animals are endangered and rare, we thought there would be a few bears and in enclosures that resembled zoos at home. How wrong could we be. The pandas were in natural surroundings and there were literally hundreds of varying ages from a few weeks old upwards. The information and... More

If you are interested in seeing pandas in their natural habitat (and not in a zoo), this is the perfect place. Here, you can enjoy seeing giant pandas and their cubs, but mostly the RED pandas, which are amazingly left free to walk around the whole base. You can easily bump into one of them while visiting the place, crossing... More

The area is huge, so you need to have in mind that you will walk a lot and this place is located over a hill. The best time to come here is in the early morning. Pandas are very active and you can avoid the crowd. If you are thinking on come here later than 10 am be able to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. It costs 60¥ to enter. There are signs in both English and Chinese so we could all learn. There is a movie room with films in both languages teaching you about the breeding system and behavioural patterns of these beautiful animals. Ten babies were born last year due to the hard work of people... More

All over the internet there are people showing photos hugging a panda. And on the website there is something about a volunteer program too. I emailed them and got no answer and I called and spoke with someone who knew little english and she said that you can't touch the pandas. I tried to explain how it is all over... More

This is the main attraction in chengdu and it did not disappoint. I had a great time. Watching the pandas do their thing was totally worth it. Will definitely comeback next time to play with the cubs.

The walk I had through the facility was amazing! You could see everything from giant Giant Pandas eating or fighting playfully to small cubs just old enough to walk rolling around in the grass. You can also walk around on a wooden path inside one of the red panda pens, and have a look at them as they're strolling over... More

Not aimed toward adults, so the kids loved it. Quite educational. They have hundreds of Pandas. I got a fair amount of entertainment reading the signs. You will understand when you get to China.

As everyone says, go early. I would go to the youngest pandas first as they are so adorable and fun to watch, but the crowds to see them can be really stack up. The red pandas are fun as you never know when they are hiding up in the trees. They look more like racoons. It is super clean and... More
