I recommend doing the Panda Volunteer Program at Dujiangyan (Base incharge of Rescue and Disease Control) which is about two hours away from the city center. Currently, this is the only Research Base still accepting volunteers and photo ops (Panda Donation Program). Headed here before...More

We were so thrilled when we discovered the Dujingyan Panda base still did the panda holding/cuddling as it has been a dream of my partners for quite some time to do this. The distance from Chengdu city centre is approximately 1.5hours depending on traffic so...More

...I'm sure I'd love it here. The enclosures are large and natural. The long-term aim of the facility is to learn how to re-introduce captive-born Pandas to the wild.

I have visited both Panda Centers in Sichuan province. The research center near Chengdu gets most of the publicity. Yes, you will see many red pandas. As for the giant pandas, I was greatly disappointed! It is expensive as well as crowed. For the money,...More

I have also been to Chengdu's Panda Base and feel it is better than Dujiangyan's in terms of variety of Panda's to view. However, this is the only Panda Base where you can "hold" the Panda's (or Panda for that matter) still very interesting as...More
