Day 1 Chengdu - Dujiangyan
Four pandas munching on bamboos
Check out of the hotel in Chengdu around 09:00 in the morning. First, we will drive you to visit the Jinsha Site Museum, where you can explore the history of Sichuan Province. It is a relic site from the Shang & Zhou Dynasties that can be traced back to the 16th century BC. The main exhibits are ivory, gold and jade wares, reflecting the flourishing civilization of ancient Chengdu. Lunch is at your own expense, and you can ask our guide for advice on a good restaurant. After that, our guide will transfer you to the Dujiangyan Scenic Area to see the Irrigation System. It is the oldest and best-preserved water conservancy project in the world, and it has been functioning for more than two thousand years. Then we will head to a hotel near the Dujiangyan Panda Base and check in. Have a nice sleep tonight so you can enjoy the highlight of your private China panda tour tomorrow.

Day 2 Dujiangyan - Chengdu
Lovely Giant Pandas
Another interesting day begins with the Panda Keeper Program specially arranged by us. Our guide will lead you directly to the base.

Entering the Dujiangyan Panda Base, professional English-speaking feeders will guide you through the one day experience. You'll need to change into special blue uniforms in advance to protect the animals from germs. The feeder will lead you to the enclosure, and your first assignment will be to wake up the sleeping pandas (Each one has its own Chinese name) and lead them out. The next task is to clean their house by sorting out their waste leftovers and excrement. You need to take notes for record. After that, it's time to prepare the panda's meal. The bamboo is cut into pieces that will be optimum for their digestion. Pandas usually eat a lot every day, so you will need to feed them enough. Afterwards, go to the special kitchen to prepare snacks for them such as apples and specially steamed buns. Cut apples and stick them on the ends of long bamboo poles. Never let the pandas reach their food easily, for they must learn to stand and jump.

After finishing all the work, you have the rest of the day for further exploration. The Panda Museum inside the base is a good choice, where you can learn more about the pandas' origin, living habits and temper. If it's summer, you may have a chance to see the newly-born cubs in the nursery house. So tiny, pink and adorable! In the playground, we recommend you take lots of pictures of them playing.

We're sure that your one day panda experience will be one of the most memorable experiences of your life. After enjoying the fun in the base, our guide and driver will escort you to downtown Chengdu.
