“Great experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

Very nice attraction and you will love this happy animal after the visit.
Prepare to spend more than half day there, if with children probably you may take whole day.
Ask to your concierge to arrange taxi / transfer, bus for foreigners are not very easy to get here.
To come back anyway it is quite easy to find a taxi outside the park.
Remember to visit the are where they are growing up the little pandas, that's really amazing.
There is internal transfer by electric bus but you may enjoy a walking all day long in the green nature.
A must see in Chengdu.

“I was charmed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

To think that Giant Pandas exist somewhere in China and you can go and take a look without fear of danger is amazing. A must for a visit to China as with the great wall there is nothing like it. An experience not just site seeing. Really such beautiful, playful, happy bears. See their beginnings, and the end result in one place. I hope they are treated well they appear so at ease.

“Chengdu Panda Park, No Pandas Outside”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2012

This was the only place in China where I was disappointed. We went to this "zoo" to see pandas, to see how they interact, and to learn about them. There is a very instructive film about the pandas, and the surroundings inside this park (downsized replicas of their natural habitat) are very nice, but the only pandas we saw were inside, in cages. Outside there weren't any. Granted, it might have been the wrong time of the pleasantly warm day, around noon.
So, if you really want to see pandas, do get information at which time of the day you stand a chance of seeing them outside, otherwise the vast majority of pandas you will see are the stuffed ones, for sale outside the park.

“Cute!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

The Giant and Red Pandas are really great to see and fun to watch. Be aware they are kept inside in the summer due to the heat and can't be seen as well as at other times of the year. Bus #902 does not exist, and if you are busing it leave yourself hours to get there. If you are in good shape don't pay the extra 10 for the shuttle, it's not worth it. Bring your own food and drinks as there is very little offered in the park.

“beautiful place, hot pandas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

Literally hot. It's a bit too hot for Pandas here and odd that the Center was located here. In the summer you'll see them inside in cages. Still pretty awesome to be so close to them, but be aware that you'll get a better look in a cooler season.
