Tour description provided by Viator

Join in this full day small-group coach tour and you will visit Chengdu's lovely pandas and the magnificent Leshan Giant Buddha. Being the natural habitat of cute giant pandas, Chengdu is known as the "Heavenly State" (Tian Fu Zhi Guo). Fertile lands and a favorable climate endow the city with picturesque surrounding scenic landscapes.
For this small-group tour, your tour guide and driver will pick you up from your hotel at 8 am. You will then be driven to visit the Chengdu Research Center of Giant Panda Breeding which has been created to imitate the panda's natural habitat so that they might have the best possible environment for rearing and breeding. The giant pandas are not only a Chinese national treasure but are also beloved by people all over the world. Then the guide and driver will transfer you to Leshan to visit the Giant Buddha. From there, you can see the Buddha by taking a boat. The Buddha is a sitting stone statue of Maitreya which is carved into a cliff at the confluence of the Min River, the Qingyi River and the Dadu River. Measuring about 233-feet high, this Buddha with a serious expression is the largest stone Buddha in the world and its carving work took about 90 years. At the end of the tour, the guide and driver will transfer you back to the city center and drop you off at Tianfu Square. Service ends here.
