Chengdu isn’t known as the ‘Land of Abundance’ for nothing. On
this full-day tour, find out why as you visit the Chengdu Panda
Breeding and Research Center and the Sanxingdui Museum. The plump
black-and-white creatures at the Panda Center will surely capture your
heart while the cultural artifacts at Sanxingdui Museum will take you
back in time to learn about ancient China’s culture.
On this full-day tour of two of Chengdu’s most visited attractions,
you’ll find out just what makes the region of China so popular.
After an early hotel pickup, you’ll head to the Chengdu Panda
Breeding Center, a non-profit research and breeding facility for giant
pandas and other rare animals. On a guided tour, visit different
sections of the center to get a full overview of a panda’s
development, from a baby panda to the full-grown giant panda. Visit
the baby garden, where you can see giant panda cubs, which weigh only
about 3.5 ounces (100 grams) at birth and by the third month are able
to walk on their own. Then stop at the sub-adult garden, where the
adolescent pandas hang out, and see the adult garden, which houses the
giant pandas in all their full-grown glory. Take pictures of this
endangered species eating bamboo, sleeping or frolicking about.
Finally, try to spot the sleeping red pandas stretched out on branches
in the red panda garden.
After stopping for lunch at a local restaurant, you’ll go to the
Sanxingdui Museum, where you’ll gain historical and cultural
knowledge of this area of China. With your informative and friendly
guide, peruse the many Bronze Age relics that were unearthed in the
1980s, when more than 1,000 bronze, gold and jade artifacts were
discovered. These archeological discoveries changed people’s
understanding of ancient history and culture, as there was little to
no previous knowledge of China’s Bronze Age. Learn about the
significance of each relic on a walk through the different exhibition
