We’re not overstating things when we say we love pandas. Chengdu is one of our favorite stopovers after all, so it’s impossible to avoid panda paraphernalia; a fact which brings us to a very real Chengdu shopping dilemma.
Because you can’t take home a real panda, it’s necessary to settle for the next best thing: a panda-themed treasure of some description. In Chengdu, you will find every conceivable gizmo and gadget paying commercial homage to pandas, so the sky is pretty much the limit. From stuffed toy pandas to panda phone cases, bookmarks, bags, teacups, keyrings, and postcards, you will find plenty of panda-adorned souvenirs in Chengdu to remember your once-in-a-lifetime encounter with these beloved black-and-white creatures. Want to go all the way? Mail your panda-themed gift home at the Panda Post Office, found of course, only in the home of pandas, Chengdu.
