This is a well run and expansive facility and it offers the visitor numerous chances to view pandas - both giant and red - up close. The setting is beautiful- a large parkland on a hillside about 15km from the centre of Chengdu. We went...More

We had a guide who advised an early visit would be best as fewer people and the pandas are more active in the morning. Quite a few visitors but it did not detract from experience. Well maintained grounds.

It can't be over emphasized how important it is to arrive early and get to a panda viewing spot at their breakfast time. They put the food at the viewing end of the enclosures and the pandas lean back and chow down on the bamboo...More

This was my favourite part of my trip ! It was amazing to see the pandas and its fantastic to know that they are no longer endangered. When the pandas are in the open the area does get very crowded and can get uncomfortable

I don’t know the hotel. But yes, you may go there by your own and buy tickets at the gate. But it’s quite far away from the downtown. I’m not sure if it is a good idea to take a taxi. There are shuttle buses from many places... More
