Complete your visit to China with a trip to the country’s premier giant panda sanctuary! A friendly, English-speaking guide will meet you at your hotel early morning and bring you the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. The base is located just 10 kilometers from the city center at Futou Mountain. It is fully equipped for giant panda breeding, with a baby panda house, several enclosures for adult pandas and cubs, health stations, a giant panda museum, and a laboratory. The base aims to create a simulation of the panda's wildlife environment so they can be eventually released to further the preservation of this endangered species. After spending your morning surrounded by these cute creatures, you’ll return to downtown Chengdu for lunch before heading over to Dufu's Thatched Cottage, a memorial museum for one of China's greatest poets. The tour’s last stop is Wuhou Temple, which is dedicated to Zhuge Liang, a famous statesman, ideologist and strategist during the Three Kingdoms Period.
