I was there and enjoy a lot the visit. You can be delighted watching at them eating and resting. We spend a full evening walking around the places and saw a lot of different pandas. The children enjoyed a lot the visit.

We arrived around 8:30 to beat the large tour groups. It was the right choice for a couple of reasons: - Although the panda enclosures are large and relatively easy for taking pictures, having to deal with a large mass of (mostly) Chinese tourists can become a problem, especially when you're looking for good angles to shoot from. - The...

The Research Base is HUGE, but an awesome place to see the Pandas...our Guide from China Odyssey got us to the base around 9.30am and we got to see both Adult and baby pandas. Can easily spend an entire day here but if you have a great Guide like Jen you can get a great tour of the Base in... More

Went here with children & grandchildren and was extremely impressed. Well cared for exhibits with positional maps & broad walkways to navigate the park. Quite a bit of walking for me but no problem to the younger folks. Even an opportunity to hold a baby panda (cost 2000 RMB = $333). Plenty of chances for good panda pictures but a... More

My husband and I were blown away with the western feel to this amazing panda breeding facility. The park and paths are well thought out and the habitats and enclosures for the pandas are fantastic. We went with our 5 year old son and 18 month old son who thoroughly enjoyed seeing so many active and happy pandas. We went... More

In addition to observing the many pandas, there are 2 additional opportunities for closer interaction with the pandas (for a price!) that are not promoted at the reserve: 1) You can hug/hold a baby panda. The cost to do this is 2000CNY per person (cash only) and is available twice a day only at 10:30 am or 2:30 pm. See... More

As the largest giant panda breeding research base in China, this place is also very interesting to visit. Not like most parks or zoos in China, this research base combines beautiful maintained grounds, lakes and construction together, like a vivid painting full of vigor. The most special experience you could have here is the panda, not only giant pandas, but... More

seeing the pandas would be an experience you won't have anywhere else. Pandas are cute and even more so when you're standing just 20 feet anyway. This is a preserve - not a zoo - and if you go early, you will be able to stand just 20 feet off and watch a panda happily eating his bamboo stalk breakfast.... More

Come and see the normal ones plus the red pandas in their home environment and breeding base. Learn the whole story of the panda, their issues and lifestyles. See babies, youngsters and older ones. Walk alongside the red pandas in their enclosure. Incredible, beautifully maintained grounds.

Spending half a day at the Panda research centre is one of the high lights of visiting China. Get there early as the Pandas are more active at feeding time before lazing about sleeping after a feed, also there is usually a crowd, so get in early to beat the rush. There was a number of Pandas visible for photos... More
