What To Expect

Complete your visit to China with a trip to the country's most frequently visited giant panda sanctuary, the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding! Chengdu is especially known for two things—pandas and delicious Sichuan food, which you will both experience on this tour. You'll first explore the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, a non-profit research and breeding facility founded in 1987. It boasts the world's largest captive panda population and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in China. Walk along its beautiful and expansive bamboo garden to see about 80-100 pandas scattered around in different sections. Later in the day, take a trip to a local market to buy some ingredients, then return to the home-style garden restaurant to attend a Sichuan cooking class. Learn about Sichuan cuisine and receive hands-on instruction to prepare delicious dinner. End the day right—by indulging in and sharing the delicious dish you just cooked!

  • Don’t scribble on anything, including rocks, trees, and buildings, in the panda base. Please walk on the path to step aside from vegetation
