Chengd panda base is a non-profit research and breeding facility for giant pandas and other rare animals. It was founded in 1987. It started with 6 giant pandas that were rescued from the wild. By 2008, it had 124 panda births, and the captive panda population has grown to 83. Its stated goal is to be a world-class research facility, conservation education center, and international educational tourism destination.
People's park is an important entertainment place for Chengdu citizen, where tourist can find the real leisure life of Chinese old people. They are singing, dancing, practicing calligraphy and enjoying tea in the traditional tea houses.
Kuanzhai Alley is the name of a pedestrian area that has been created by renovating Qing Dynasty hutongs (courtyard houses most famous in Beijing) and making them into shops, cafes, bars and hotels. The area was originally a place where northern Chinese lived so they created a neighborhood in the style of their architecture

Victor and Luna were excellent. Luna took us on a tour of the city the first day, with very useful tidbits of info- we especially liked the visit to the market to see all the unusual delicacies eaten in China. Victor was very useful, too; he re-routed us from our original panda trip to one farther away where it was possible to have a close encounter with a panda- this was one of the high points of our trip. He was also very knowledgeable about the panda center.
