Day 3 Bifeng Gorge - Chengdu
Our guest visiting the Broad and Narrow Alleys of Chengdu
You will spend the whole day at Bifeng Gorge Panda Base today. It is not exaggerated to say the base is the heaven of pandas, equipped with kindergarten, hospital, playground, houses, villas and various kinds of bamboos for these little cutes. Here, you can watch them playing with each other, eating bamboos joyfully, or lie sweetly asleep. Also, you can learn living habits, evolutionary history, and suitable living environment of pandas. We believe this will be the first time in your life that you see so many pandas in a time. Our guide will also accompany you to visit the rest part of the base to appreciate beautiful waterfalls and listen to touching fairy tales behind each scenic spot. In late afternoon, we'll drive you back to Chengdu.
