See Panda by Public transportation


I have almost a day in Chengdu (my flight departs at 5pm) by the end of Oct. Am wondering if It is possible for me to see the panda by public transportation? I am staying at traffic inn hostel.

Many thanks.

You are making life difficult for yourself but your hostel can advise you of which buses you need to connect with. Get a taxi - it's a lot easier and wont bankrupt you.

I hope it's okey to ask my question in this same thread. How much about is a taxi to panda place and how long journey? I'm staying at Crowne Plaza Chengdu City Center.

It usually takes about 40 minutes(15km) by taxi from city center to the Base. But there are lots of road and subway construction going on currently in Chengdu, the traffic is like the worst ever. You may consider not going during rush hours. Taxi cost is about 40 to 50 yuan one way.

Public transport to the Base from traffic inn hostel(Xinnanmen): Public Bus Route 49 to Zhaojuesi hengjie Stop and swith to Route87 or 198 to the Base.

I went to the Base two years ago, the entrance fee cost me around 60 yuan and there were not many pubilc buses. I remember I waited like half an hour for the bus when I went back.
