You absolutely must see pandas if you go to China and this is a really good place to see them. We had awful weather and it was pouring with rain, but this meant the pandas were out playing as it wasn't hot. The centre is set up with park like enclosures, so the pandas can disappear into the trees if they want, or play on viewing platforms where the bamboo is left out for them. There is quite a bit of walking but there is a little land train if needed. Most of the focus is on the Giant pandas but there are some red ones too. The best bit was the neonatal unit with the tiny baby pandas, cutest things on the planet! You could pay £200 to have a 'keepers experience" which meant you could put on a gown and cuddle a young 1-2yr old panda, but our tour group wasn't told in advance and they only take cash or chinese cards. I didn't do it, but people who did said it was expensive but an experience they would always remember. (The money goes to the research programme.). Pansa watching is quite addictive but if you can tear yourself away, there is a nice coffee shop, and the giftshops are well priced and have suitably panda orientated gifts.
