The Chengdu Re­search Base of Gi­ant Panda Breed­ing


It has to be done. When in the gi­ant bear’s do­main it is only right to en­gage in the pan­de­mo­nium sur­round­ing China’s na­tional trea­sure, and the Chengdu Panda Re­search Base is the best place to do this. It’s just un­der an hour’s drive from the city cen­ter, and is beau­ti­fully main­tained. Spend the morn­ing wan­der­ing around and view­ing pan­das of all shapes and sizes, mostly munch­ing bam­boo and milling about their ex­pan­sive en­clo­sures. They are fed at 9:30 AM, and the cooler, ear­lier part of the day is when they are more ac­tive.

Open 8:00 AM – 5:30 PM; en­try RMB58 ($9.50).1,375 Xiong­mao (Panda) Av­enue, North­ern Sub­urb; cn/english
