    You come for the pandas. All other animals are (probably (few interesting. For me at least. I thought here whole groups of pandas. That impression is in any case aroused through the folders of the Office for tourism. The reality is that there are only three pandas in the Zoo. And that occur all day against blocks of ice (it was above the 40 degrees so absolutely love those animals are not) and chewing from time to time a sprig of bamboo road. If that happened, a shock of forecast by the (three rows thick) spectators back and start filming everyone with his or her smartphone. Me too. But still I felt cheated. Near the Zoo are some good and cheap restaurants. That made a lot of good.

    This also bear cat can be seen here, not just bear cat, still has a lot of find material, but since I can see to this, do not visit bus 繼 續 to bear cat base, Club Med is worth much more tech-奮.

    We talk about videos showing "healers" hit the pandas? Drag them to the ground and brutalize them. These people do not like the animals they do that for the money as the temple of the Tigers in Thailand and all over the world in fact. In itself the principle of zoos is good since it allows to save species. But if it's to save them in these conditions, as much as they turn off... You want to condone that ben go to this zoo.

Where to stay in Chengdu

The vast majority of visitors to Chengdu look for their accommodations along Tianfu Avenue, the main arterial road that cuts the southern district of the modern city in two. Upmarket and standard hotels can be found along the road and its surrounding side streets, overlooking pleasant plazas and parks, or the river that snakes around to the east. Guesthouses and hostels throughout the south provide a welcome range of budget accommodations, but heading to the more built-up and residential northern area will reveal a greater amount of particularly cost-effective options.
