  • The Zoo is a spacious complex Center in Chengdu. This includes a small amusement park for children. The facility is spacious and cute, but the enclosure look partially a bit drab. When we were there 3 young pandas and 6 adult pandas were to see. In this respect it already paid off to see so many pandas on a site. With 3 small, the nurses have played what was very funny to look at, the little ones just plain cute. Otherwise, white Tigers are to see everything else is normal Zoo standard. The ticket prices are relatively inexpensive, if you have time it pays off for 2-3 h to visit the 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.
