Welcome to Chengdu Panda Breeding and Research Center

Chengdu Panda Breeding and Research Center

The largest centre of its kind, the Chengdu Panda Breeding and Research Center is part zoo, part lab, and part habitat. The centre is focused on increasing the population of giant pandas in captivity so that more may be released into the wild; with this in mind, the Chengdu centre is the best place on earth to see ridiculously cute panda cubs. The park is also a home to many red pandas and other endangered Chinese animals, though the famous giant pandas are the main attraction. The Giant Panda Museum has interactive exhibits designed to teach visitors about the fascinating creatures, and the work of the centre. It takes about two hours to walk the grounds, or visitors can ride in a tour cart.

Make sure you exchange your leftover Yuan before returning home because this currency can be exchanged only within China's borders. Travellers cheques, preferably in US Dollars, and foreign cash can be exchanged in cities at the Bank of China. Banks are closed weekends. The larger hotels and the special 'Friendship Stores' designed for foreigners will accept most western currencies for purchases. Major credit cards are accepted in the main cities at various establishments, but outside the major cities acceptance is limited. ATMs are scarce outside the main cities.
