Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding was founded in 1987. It started with 6 giant pandas that were rescued from the wild. After years of the hard work of scientists and experts, the total number of pandas here has increased to over 140. It is the largest research and breeding centre in the world and a must-see attraction in Chengdu.
Please note that it is not allowed to hold baby panda for pictures in Chengdu Panda Base. If you are interested in this programme, we may go to Dujiangyan Panda Base instead.
The Dujiangyan is an ancient irrigation system in Dujiangyan City. Originally constructed around 256 BC as an irrigation and flood control project, it is still in use today. Besides the dam, you can also see a traditional garden with nice bonsai, and the exquisite Taoist Temple on the hill.

Daniel was punctual and cheerful. He has good knowledge about the history and geography of Chengdu and I learnt a lot about Chengdu city since this is my 1st time here. The drive to Dujiangyan took about 2 hours and he kept the journey entertaining by giving information about the city, economic details and reason why people in Sichuan eat such spicy food. He even helped by writing down key products names in chinese so that I can make purchases without knowing how to read chinese and where to eat hot pot!
