If you have never seen giant pandas, go to this center IF you are in the area. It is not worth going way out of your way. There are many places around the world to see pandas (i.e. San Diego and Washington DC). If you haven;t seen any before and are in Chengdu, then go here on a nice day. It is a small modern zoo and has only pandas and red pandas, all in outdoor enclosures. But as a "research center" I expected much much more - like seeing where they are born, raised as infants, etc. - an actual research center,not just some outdoor zoo enclosures. We saw about 5 enclosures. The red pandas were new to me. In ONE spot we saw a baby panda in a crib. Bathrooms: 9 out of 10. Food: 2 out of ten (did not see any cafe or place to buy food). Several small gift shops. Clean, well run, just very disappointing on the pandas. Lots of uphill walking. If you wish, you can be photographed standing next to a person holding a panda - cost is about $150 per photo.
