The Chengdu Giant Panda and Research Base are one of the main research bases for the protection of giant pandas and other endangered wildlife. The base covers a sprawling area, which is beautifully landscaped with bamboo (of course!). Established by the Chinese government, the Chengdu Giant Panda and Research Base is a unique and widely respected center for experiencing these beautiful and entertaining creatures firsthand. While it is very busy regardless of the time of year, exploring within the center’s grounds is still comfortable and there is ample opportunity to view the pandas at different ages and stages. Naturally, the baby pandas are incredibly cute, but the older bears offer as much entertainment. It’s the perfect place for children or those who simply want to experience something that brings out their inner playful child.
