Your private vehicle collects you from your central Chengdu hotel for the drive to the Giant Panda Breeding Research Base, a conservation and research center that’s been pivotal in preserving this endangered species for posterity. Your guide will help explain the pandas’ behavior and environmental needs.
Next, continue to historic Chengdu and Wenshu Yuan Monastery, a Buddhist temple that dates back more than 1,000 years and is known for its sacred art and relics. Your guide will help you explore the historical neighborhood and local market around the monastery before you stop for an authentic Sichuan lunch at a local restaurant.
Sated, visit a classic teahouse in People’s Park and relax over jasmine tea as you learn about daily life in Chengdu from your guide. Stroll down historic Kuanzhai Ancient Street before your private vehicle drops you back to your hotel.
