I was planning a short 2-day weekend trip to Chengdu in late December. The main purpose of the trip is holding (and feeding?) the pandas. I have been researching on tripadvisor, but am a bit confused.
(1) Is the "Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding" at No.1375 Xiongmao Avenue the Outside Northern Third Ring Road, the same as the Giant Panda Breeding Research Base (Xiongmao Jidi) in Xiongmao DaDao (northeast of the zoo)? If they are different, which is the right or better one to go to for holding/feeding pandas?
(2) Are these places open on the weekends?
(3) Do you have to make a reservation in advance to hold/ feed the pandas? If so, where do you make the reservation?
Thanks in advance!
