As one of the country's oldest inhabitants, it is no surprise the Giant Panda has long been synonymous with China. As a national emblem, the Giant Panda has been a symbol of the country's diplomacy, its natural environment and on a wider scale, a symbol of animal conservation worldwide. As an increasingly endangered species, the protection of this languid and lovable bear from extinction is a top priority for China, and the frontrunner in this mission is the Chengdu Panda Research Base, located just 10 kilometres north of Chengdu's city centre.

With over 80 pandas holding residence, the Chengdu Panda Research Base is equipped with the latest technology and research materials to gain a further understanding in how we can protect the panda and maintain, if not increase, its numbers. The park is set up to resemble the mountain and forest regions in north Sichuan, the original home of the Giant Panda, with extensive bamboo trees and large green spaces. Red Pandas, the Giant Panda's lovable cousin, and flamboyant peacocks too roam the park, making for an interesting mix of residents.

Welcoming over 100,000 visitors every year, a visit to the Chengdu Panda Research Base is a great way to see these cute black and white bears up close and personal. Watch them munching on bamboo, climbing trees and play fighting with their brothers and sisters.
