Day 5 Chengdu
A giant panda in Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding
Today we will first take a visit to Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. This is also one of the most highlight parts of your trip. You will be driven to the base in the early morning to catch the panda's most active moment, breakfast feeding time. First, you will drop by the Giant Panda Museum, where you can get a better understanding of panda's origin, living habits. Then proceed to the panda's enclosure. Pandas stay in their cozy houses, some taking a nap, while some falling into fantasy and some of them will walk to the glass greeting with visitors.

Continue your trip to view the cage-free pandas outdoors. You will see pandas in different age gaps, such as baby puppy and grown-up pandas. They are vivacious and cheerful, playing with each other, jumping in trees. Of course, there are also greedy pandas keeping eating, and lazy ones sleeping under the sunshine. You can capture this vivid scene with your camera for a good memory. Afterwards, we will head to the Panda's Nursery House, where you can witness the new-born panda infants. Tiny, hairy and pinky, you will be surprised by their adorable and naïve performances.

If time permits, you will have a chance to pay a visit to Panda Story Cinema for a lesson of panda and Swan Lake for a relaxing stroll. It is almost lunch time, and the lunch is on your side, for Chengdu is a city rich in delicious food. You can also turn to our guide for some advice.

After lunch, we will pay a visit to Broad and Narrow Alleys, exploring the culture of Chengdu. It is a commercial street developed from local dwellings, and the old buildings become book shops, restaurants and pubs. Then head to Jinsha Site Museum to get yourself cultivated by the profound and flourishing history of Sichuan Province.

Meals: Western buffet breakfast
Day 6 Chengdu - Leshan - Chengdu
Today we'll drive you to Leshan, about 1.5 hours journey. Upon arrival, you will visit Leshan Giant Buddha, the biggest carvings in the world, with a total height of 233 feet (71 meters). First built in 803 AD, this Giant Buddha survived hundreds of years so far. Taking a boat alone the river is the best way to enjoy the full view of the Buddha.

You can take metro line 4 from Luomashi Station to 2nd People's Hospital Station. Then transfer to metro line 3 to Panda Anenue Station, Exit A. After arriving, transfer to public bus no.198 to the base directly.

How can I get to Mt Emei from the panda reserve?
We will be coming from Xi'an by bullet train and would like to visit the panda reserve as well as Mt Emei, is that possible without staying the night in Chengdu?

Answered by John from SINGAPORE | Apr. 01, 2017 21:55

Carol, do you mean taking a bullet train from Xi'an to Chengdu? If so, I'm afraid the plan cannot work as the bullet train between the two cities has not been unveiled yet. You may take a fast train from Xi'an Railway Station to Chengdu first in around 15h. If you arrive in early morning, you can totally visit the two spots in one day.
Upon arrival at Chengdu Railway Station, you may take bus no. 9 to the Zoo Metro Station, there you can transfer to bus 198 or 198A to the Panda Reserve. After that, you may take a taxi to Chengdu East Railway Station to catch a high speed train to Mt. Emei; the train ride only takes 1.5h.

Photos with the panda
Hi, we are heading to the Chengdu panda base this month and I'm just wondering is it possible there to hold the panda cub and get your picture taken with it?

Answered by Mark | Jun. 05, 2016 21:35

As far as I know, the service for photo taking with panda is only available at Dujiangyan Panda Base. You can not hold the panda and take picture at Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding.

GL02-02 or GL03
Hello TravelChina!
My boyfriend and I want to know if it is possible for us to join other groups, who has already booket a tour (GL02-02 or GL03) with you? We are talking about between the 9th of november to the 13th of november. If there is any groups already booket in that time frame, is it then possible for me and my boyfriend to join their guided tour?

For example: 2-10 persons already booket GL02-02 or GL03, and me and my boyfriend go on the same tour. Do you have any tours already booked from the 9th to the 13th of november? If you do so, is it possible for us to join?

Regards Michelle&Frederik
