Your guide will arrive at your downtown Chengdu hotel to pick you up at 7:20am for your full-day tour. In a comfortable tour vehicle, head for the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding.
Once there, learn about the different types of housing for pandas in different stages of rehabilitation. Each enclosure has an indoor room and outdoor courtyard to ensure the pandas have plenty of space. Pandas closer to being released back to the wild are kept only outdoors so they can adapt back to living outside full time and recover their natural survival skills.
Departing the panda base, stop for lunch at a local restaurant before continuing your tour at the Grand Buddha. Carved into a large riverside cliff, the statue stands 230 feet (70 meters) tall. Walk around the area to see the other shrines, temples, carvings, some waterfalls, and the Haoshang Bridge.
After 8 hours of exploration, return to your original departure point or drop-off.
