Helpful Chengdu Travel Tips

The world famous breeding & research center for giant pandas was founded in the north suburbs of Chengdu. Now it is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Chengdu.Try to visit this base in the morning,when the pandas are most active.

In order to better protect wild giant pandas, Chengdu has established nature reserves in Dujiangyan City, Chongzhou City, and Dayi County. Sichuan Wolong Giant Panda Nature Reserve, the biggest of its kind in the world, is only 130 kilometers outside Chengdu.

On January 11, 2012 six captive-bred pandas were released to a "semi-wild" environment in Dujiangyan, Chengdu. Scientists believe that success in the reintroduction project would potentially help save the endangered giant panda.

Sichuan Giant Panda sanctuaries

Sichuan Giant Panda Sanctuaries, lie on the transitional alp-canyon belt between the Sichuan Basin and the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau. It is the largest remaining continuous habitat for giant pandas and home to more than 80% of the world’s wild giant pandas. The reserves of the habitat are 100-200  km away from Chengdu.
