Was a zoo-like research facility with multiple pens for pandas of differing ages and a separate facility for young/juvenile pandas Great way to see them up close and admire their Cushy life. Also present were red pandas which were equally interesting

If you are in China, you must make sure to visit Chengdu, and the breeding and research facility. Like a zoo, but all pandas, and very large. Tram service for those with mobility issues. A lifetime experience if you are an animal lover.

Extremely crowded. Be patient to see the babies in the nursery. Walk along the pathways to see the Giant pandas in their habitat. Also saw red pandas. Was able to get many good pictures.

Go during the weekday to beat the weekend crowd. This place is simple and kept up very well. Lots of pandas, easy to see/access.

We visited Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding (Panda Park) by morning around 8.30 am in NOV 2018. We were lucky to spot nearly all the Pandas in the Park as it was winter season as Pandas were out in the Park.

No. They are very careful of the panda babies' health, and outsiders are not allowed to handle them for fear of communicating disease. Even the regular keepers and researchers handle them wearing surgical jackets, masks, etc.

Hello, I am afraid I do not know, I do not recall seeing any luggage facilities there. Not sure if their website may have info. It gets very crowded and you will not want to be dragging main luggage around.
