Itinerary
Stop At:  
Giant Panda Breeding Research Base (Xiongmao Jidi)
After your guide picks you up from your hotel lobby in Chengdu city centre, you will start this full day tour in the capital of Sichuan province and home of the pandas. The first stop of the tour is the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. This conservation facility is leading the charge for giant panda breeding in Sichuan, with the ultimate aim of releasing these animals back into the wild once numbers have stabilized. There are separate enclosures for adult and adolescent pandas, where you can watch these Chinese icons chow down on bamboo and amble around their spacious, semi-wild areas. At many times of year, it's also possible to see the panda cubs the facility breeds. They begin their life as minuscule, hairless creatures, weighing just 3.5 ounces (100 grams), and grow rapidly into adorable balls of fur.
 After the Centre, your tour guide will take you to eat a traditional Chengdu-Sichuan lunch at a local restaurant.

Panda Base are why tourists come to Chengdu , it did not disappoint! Peoples Park and the tea house were beautiful, had a very nice day. The monastery while iconic in nature was not as informative as I needed! It was OK , just not up to the other events!

Our tour guide, Emma, was exceptionally knowledgeable, young and energetic. She was also extremely helpful with getting us acquainted with Chengdu, both modern and historical. Chengdu is definitely one of the beautiful cities in China and has great cuisine. The pandas were, of course, adorable and we got some amazing photos. And the face changing opera was magical and very funny. Loved it!
