Is your time in Chengdu limited? Make the most of a short stay in Chengdu by stopping off at the famous Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding on your way to or from the airport on this 4-hour private tour. This tour includes private transfer from the airport to the hotel or vice versa, entrance tickets, and local guide.
The local guide will meet you at your hotel or at the airport in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle at a time that fits with your flight time.
The Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding is open from 7:30 am-6:00 pm daily, so an arrival no later than 1:00 pm and a departure no earlier than 2:00 pm are recommended.
This conservation facility is leading the charge for giant panda breeding in Sichuan, with the ultimate aim of releasing these animals back into the wild once numbers have stabilized. There are separate enclosures for adult and adolescent pandas, where you can watch these Chinese icons chow down on bamboo and amble around their spacious, semi-wild areas.
At many times of year, it's also possible to see the panda cubs the facility breeds. They begin their life as minuscule, hairless creatures, weighing just 3.5 ounces (100 grams), and grow rapidly into adorable balls of fur.
The landscaped grounds are home to a museum devoted to the giant panda as well as fascinating exhibits on panda care and other panda species.
You'll generally have around three and a half hours at the site before your guide and driver transfers you to your hotel or to the airport.
Upon purchase of the ticket, you will receive an email confirmation with e-ticket/e-voucher within two days. Tours and tickets are subjected to availability and are not confirmed until a second confirmation email is received.
