Know More about this tourYour tour starts at 8:00am, when your guide and driver pick you up at the lobby of your hotel. You will first visit the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda, as the pandas are very active in the morning. There you will see lovely furry giant pandas of all ages eating and playing with each other. You will also have a chance to see the very cute baby pandas, as well as documents and pictures showing how these little pink mouse-size animals grow into giant white and black chubby pandas of over 220 lbs (100kg). While at the base, you can also see red pandas and swans.
You will then proceed to Broad and Narrow Alleys, one of the three cultural reserves in Chengdu. The Broad and Narrow Alleys were once old residential areas during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911). Now, most of the houses have been restored and turned into restaurants, souvenir stores, bars, art galleries, and tea houses. You will have time for lunch at one of the nice restaurants (own expense), and your guide will be very glad to give you some advice.
