This was one of the highlights of our trip. We arrived early before it became too crowded and were immediately rewarded with a stunning view of a giant panda. We saw all sizes from babies through to teenagers and several adults. They either slept or ate, enjoying their relaxed lives.
An additional bonus was being able to see and photograph the red pandas who were far more elusive.
Without a centre like this the giant panda would probably be extinct.

Advantage is this place is near city centre so easily accessible. Also, seniors above 60 years old get free admission.
Not many pandas though even when we visit early morning.

This Panda Breeding Research base is extremely well done. The grounds are a very nice respite from the hardscape of Chengdu, the Pandas are easily accessible, we had a nice lunch at the Bamboo Restaurant and everybody was friendly.

Apart from everything everybody can tell you about this wonderful huge mono zoo I was most impressed by the movie shown at the entrance ( and also a bit further in the park)
We saw a giant panda feeling a bit restless and then - floop - the birth of a tiny pink sort of piglet. and... another one!
In real life pandas only can take care of one newborn because of the amount of bamboo she will have to gather....
Here the researchers immediately took the second baby away from the mom and put her in the incubator. and then - please note!!: every three hours they changed the babies, so each youngster spent 3 hours with the mother plus three hours in the incubator
so the mother was rainig TWO babies wihout ever seeing them together.
I thought that was very clever.....! and a solution for the future of the panda's!

Totally enjoyed the visit here. The panda viewing was much better than expected due to the large open enclosures. Had to be patient for photos sometimes due to the large number of mainly Chinese tourists. Morning is the quietest time to come. The tiny baby pandas were rather cute, but not much activity from them in their bassinet. totally recommended, fabulous.

Went on a group tour with Trip A Deal to this panda base. Was fantastic, were lucky enough to watch the adult pandas playing around. Lovely park and for those that struggle walking there is a courtesy golf buggy type train. Would highly recommend this tour.

Beautiful seeing the pandas. There were 6 little pandas which we queued up to see inside and they were all in a big cot. So cute. The reserve is well kept and heaps of pandas. Extremely enjoyable.

We spent a great 4 hours watching the pandas in this well appointed, well run center! It was a weekend so it was quite crowded, but still plenty of opportunities to see the pandas. Bring mosquito lotion if you tend to get bitten.

We took a taxi from the hotel and it was easy to get a taxi back. Use the green taxis as they are the ones with meters. Allow at least 3 hours and try to go in the morning because the pandas sleep in the afternoon.

Great place to visit to see many Pandas. As per the guidebooks get there early - it opened at 0730 in October as the Pandas are fed early. As there’s little nutrition in bamboo they then fall asleep to conserve energy. So unless you want to see snoozing Pandas get there early. Super popular place so busy. The inside closures can be hard to see what’s going on with the crowds especially around the baby Panda.

Very few coffee places but they did have a Panda cafe - who doesn’t want a late with a panda face on and a cute toy joining you at the table. Souvenir store is manic.

Loved it. Nothing like it anywhere else so go visit !
