Perhaps it's somewhere hidden in the reviews or the online literature for the Research Base but I was completely surprised when going to purchase my general admission ticket that entry is FREE for seniors. A side note for birders: this may be the Red-billed Leiothrix...More

What a beautiful Panda Reserve. The Pandas are well taken care of as they should be. Saw many Pandas lazing around eating and seemingly enjoying life. Internships must be arranged in advance and participants need medical clearance from home. We fed Pandas special type bread...More
