What You Can Expect

Private Day Trip: Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding and Leshan Grand Buddha

The Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding is home to pandas of all ages

Wake up bright and early to meet your guide in the lobby of your Chengdu hotel at 7:30am. Board a private tour vehicle and relax on the journey to the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, located just 30 minutes away by car. 

Once you arrive, you'll have a private tour of the facility to learn about its efforts toward panda conservation and rehabilitation. Established in 1987 with just a handful of rescued pandas, the base has grown into a leader in educational tourism and panda breeding. You'll see giant pandas in all life stages going about their daily life in the spacious enclosures. Morning is when pandas are their most active, so you've got a good chance of seeing some panda activity. 

Departing the panda base, choose to have lunch in either Leshan or Chengdu. Your guide is happy to suggest local options. 

Back in the tour vehicle, enjoy the scenery on the 2-hour drive to Leshan. Upon arrival, you'll see the remarkable Leshan Grand Buddha, which has earned a spot on the UNESCO World Heritage List as the largest Buddha in the world. Listen to your guide's commentary about the history of the structure while admiring its full height of 233 feet (71 meters). Choose to explore on foot or by boat (additional fee of USD $12). 

Return to Chengdu around 5:30pm.
