  • The giant panda breeding and Research Center is certainly the most popular curiosity of Chengdu. It is best to visit in the morning when the pandas are active because after their meal, they tend to sleep. Giant pandas and red pandas live in very large enclosures of disputes of what we find in the usual zoos. An exhibition located on the left when entering will explain everything to know about this strange animal.

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.
