Here we spend a day, seeing both the giant panda and the very much smaller, red panda. A unique experience to come close to the animals.

Not only are they doing interesting scientific work and breeding here, it's also an amazing opportunity to see more pandas in one place than anywhere else. The enclosures are huge and the pandas seem to have plenty of space and more food than they could...More

This is basically a must visit. Inside you can chose to buy an additional ride if you don't feel like walking. But it's worth the walk if you want the full experience.

The best time to go is to arrive by 8am (facility opens at 7:30am I think). Have your hotel check closing hours, I think it depends on the season, but I think it’s around 5pm (starts getting dark). The Panda gets their... More
