I love going to see the pandas. They are really active on a morning so go as early as possible, because they will be asleep all afternoon. Once it gets over 21degrees it's too warm for them so October - April is the best time to visit. Avoid summer at all costs, they will be asleep indoors, hard to see... More

We travelled to Chengdu especially to visit the panda research centre, and so glad we did, it's amazing !! If not for this centre, and its other 3 centres dedicated to the survival and return of this magnificent creature to the wild, there would be few, if any pandas left on the planet. Set in a very picturesque park environment,... More

PANDA LOVERS HEAVEN. This must be one of the most sublime experiences available on a trip to China. If you come to Chengdu, plan to spend a day here because you'll continually find new photo opportunities. Whether it's adult pandas reclining peacefully, juvenile pandas munching bamboo or baby pandas messing about and exploring their enclosure while developing their climbing ability... More

We visited the Research Centre for half a day. Despite arriving early on the Saturday morning it was already busy. The younger pandas attract most of the attention but if you are paitient you will get a good position to observe their playful nature There is a fair bit of walking between enclosures but transport is plentiful so the park...

I didn't expect the grounds to be as gorgeous as they were. The park is beautifully planned, with walkways shaded with gorgeous bamboo. There are various panda enclaves, with homes for the little ones, the "teenage" ones and the HUGE adults. The pandas are worth every minute of travel you have to go through to get there, and are obviously... More

This is a research centre with lots of open areas, clean and beautiful, set up like a park. If you don’t have a full day to spend here you can get a ticket for 10 RBM to ride a shuttle golf cart that will take you to each station. The guide told us the best time to see the pandas... More

Go as early as possible to beat the crowds. There are over 140 Giant Pandas here now after they started with six females. The youngsters are at there playful best in the cooler weather so another reason to go early
