Not long enough and very disorganised. Staff needed to be better equipped then yelling at guests to get ready for their 10 seconds of fame. Man t left angry they were not allocated enough time for the 309 outlay.

The base is located 1,5 hour drive from Chengdu. Pandas are really cute & loveable, you will find giant and red ones over there. Photo with panda costs CNY 1800/person, it is literally 20 seconds with panda, but definitely worth it. All the money will...More

There have been previous posts about volunteering. We spent a couple of hours there, feeding the pandas and making up their cakes, and other travellers have also been there over the past few months. Great experience!

We dropped by Panda Valley after visiting Dujiangyan as it is not far away. This panda sanctuary is relatively secluded and has much less people. One could see quite a number of pandas in relative comfort at this facility. However, one cannot feed or hug...More

There are two panda facilities. This one is not filled with so many tourists. It's a bit smaller but more of a natural habitat for the pandas. I prefer this place over the Panda Ark, however if you want to feed or hug a panda,...More
