Chengdu Panda Breeding Research Base Centre in Sichuan province of China


Chengdu is the capital of Sichuan province in Southwest of China. Many tourists and locals flock to Chengdu for trying hot and spicy Sichuan food as well as visiting cute giant pandas.

I am not a big fan of Sichuan cuisine as I am not able to take the food which is served with hot and spicy of chili oil and peppers. The moment I take Sichuan food, I will immediately feel the burning sensation on my lips, tongue and also my throat too.

Sichuan cuisine is normally served with hot and spicy sauce of chilli oil and Sichuan pepper, which can burn your lips and throat sensation.

Chengdu Panda Breeding Research Base Centre is the most anticipated that I really want to visit in Chengdu. It is located about 10km away from Chengdu downtown. There isn't direct subway transportation to the research base except you can find many taxis (cab) and buses to Chengdu Panda Breeding Research Centre. Giant pandas love cold weather thus, they are released from their indoor cages in the early morning for their play, socialization with other mates and eating bamboo. Therefore, you need to get to Chengdu Panda Breeding Centre by 7:30am. The research base is very gigantic hence, you need to plan your day. You can hop on the golf cart which is available after the ticket entrance to the research base. The ticket entrance for the research base is CNY60 (USD10) per person while taking the golf cart ride costs about CNY10 (USD2) per person to get to the end of the research base where pandas are located. Then you take your time to walk around and down the base before heading out the exit. I spend about 5 hours at the base while strolling to look for pandas and enjoying taking their photographs. 

The research base is designed into a man-made natural forest or suitable habitat for giant pandas thus, you don't find high wired fences but it is quite a  huge distance between the humans and the pandas. Therefore, you need to bring a long zoom lens in order to get a good quality photo of pandas.
