Probably the place in the world to see many giant and red pandas. The project is internationally famous and the viewing areas to see these lovely animals are very good. We were even fortunate to see some very new borns in incubators. The Panda Keeping experience is special, feeding cleaning and cleaning out their enclosures gives a real insight into... More

We traveled to Chengdu to see the Pandas and we were not disappointed. Watching pandas climb trees and sitting eating bamboo was a once in the lifetime thrill. Best of all was seeing the baby pandas in a crib in a nursery.

I was looking forward to seeing pandas at the end of our Wendy Wu tour, but hadn't thought too much about it. I was totally endeared to the pandas when there, seeing them do their cute panda things in the flesh, they really are adorable. The Centre itself is beautiful - set in pretty rainforest that provides welcome shade in... More

Its always been a dream of mine to visit Chengdu and see the baby pandas and hug one. Last week I did as part of a Wendy Wu tour. It was amazing!!! The centre is really well laid out and the pandas have loads of room. A MUST do for Chengdu area.

This was one of the highlights of our trip to China. Definitely more active during the morning and as others have said, the earlier you go, the fewer people are there. I thought the design of the base was impressive and not like a typical zoo. There were six baby giant pandas there when I visited which is a testimony... More

What a beautiful day. Those bears softened everyones hearts. The ooos and ahhs were heard all day. I was lucky enough to se the babies, about 2 months old and some older ones in the nursery. The teens and adults were so playful but they insisted turning their backs to us. I did get some beautiful photos and was greatful... More

It has always been a dream of mine to hold a Giant Panda and this was accomplished perfectly in Chengdu. Our guide Kevin picked us up on time and we arrived at the park before it opened, its important to get there early as Pandas are more active in the morning and head inside later on in the day as...

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this visit, and would recommend it to anyone. The Panda Research Base opens at 7.30am and at that time on a Sunday morning a taxi from the Wenshu temple area took only about 20mins and cost 34Y. On the advice of someone I met at the entrance I took the bus for... More

We took a taxi from the Holiday Inn Express, Gulou in a rainy August at 705am, it cost 36 Yuan and we were waiting outside at 0725 for them to open with four other people. Go early. The park when quiet is lovely. Even the Panda's were still awake. Head to enclosure 14, for a quick look and then up... More
