Pandas at Chengdu Research Base for Panda


One of my highlights of visiting China was a visit to the Chendgu Research Base for Pandas – although I did not get a chance to cuddle one (the cost is rather steep – USD350) – and while I was prepared to shell out the money, that very day of my wishing it, something wasn’t quite right at the base – cuddling area was shut down – could have been the heat, but I couldn’t say).

Pandas are rarely seen in the wild – but your best chance of seeing one in China would be at the Chengdu Research Base for Pandas. Remember to go early especially during summer – or the pandas will quickly disappear under shade.
