Located in the heart of Sichuan province, Chengdu is home to one of China's — and the world's — best-loved animals: the panda. In addition to seeing these cute and cuddly national treasures, this one day tour will help you understand the fascinating culture of this unique city, with a visit to the vibrant Wuhou Temple and popular People’s Park, where you can drink tea with some of the local people.
• Pick up from your hotel • Chengdu Panda Base - Founded in 1987, is a non-profit research and breeding facility for giant pandas and other rare animals. The pandas are fed in the morning and are most active at that time of day, so that is when most people visit. The bears will relax and sleep during the afternoon. • Lunch: Chinese Style Standard • Wuhou Monastery - The Wuhou Temple features beautiful gardens and old bonsai trees. Located next to Jinli Street, these two activities are usually done together. After a stroll through the temple, you can enjoy a drink or snack on Jinli Street, or pick up some souvenirs. • People's Park & Drink Tea with Local people - Relaxing with a pot of tea and playing mahjong is one of the most popular pastimes in Chengdu and no more so than in People's Park. • Jinli Cultural Street - enjoy a stroll along this ancient alleyway, one of the best places to taste authentic Chengdu food • Drop-off at your hotel
