Fodor's Review

The Giant Panda Breeding Research Base is worth the 45-minute drive to walk the peaceful bamboo groves, snap pictures of the lolling pandas, and catch a glimpse of the tiny baby pandas that are born with startling regularity. Crews of scientists help pandas breed and care for the young in a safe, controlled environment. Guests can also briefly hold a baby or juvenile giant panda for a donation to the center of Y2,000. Visit early in the morning, when the pandas are most

active. To get here, book a driver through your hotel for Y300 to Y400 round-trip. A taxi will cost about Y 80 each way.
