For many people, the first thing to do in Chengdu is to see the adorable pandas. At present, there are only around 1,500 pandas in the world, and most of them live in Sichuan, China. After breakfast, we will set out early to the Giant Panda Breeding Research Base, where you can observe the pandas eating bamboo, climbing trees and playing with each other. They are usually active in the morning, so an early start is essential. After the panda tour, you can make your own arrangement for lunch. Our guide is happy to offer you some suggestions.

In the afternoon, we proceed to visit the Jinsha Site Museum. This museum was built at the Jinsha archeological site, where many valuable artifacts from more than 3000 years ago, including the Golden Sun Bird and Golden Mask, have been uncovered. Later, we will take you to explore the Broad and Narrow Alleys, a good place for a leisurely stroll. Should you feel tired, find yourself a nice tea house to relax and enjoy.
