When someone says Chengdu, there's generally one thing that comes to mind: pandas, which are native to Sichuan. Visiting the pandas in Chengdu is often at the top of people's travel bucket lists—and on this tour, you'll get to tick off exactly that on your own list. You'll explore the Chengdu Panda Base, 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. Witness the iconic giants eating and playing in a habitat that closely resembles nature, and feel the respect the centre has for these protected animals. Admire the beautiful bamboo hedges and other ornamental plants, too, and see the peacocks, swans, and other birds, as well as colorful butterflies, that also make this place their home. If you want to see a Chinese icon and one of the world's favorite endangered species, then this tour is for you!
