Detailed Itinerary

You’ll receive a welcome call from your guide, he/she will tell you the exact pick-up time for the next day’s trip. If you are not available at that moment, the tour guide will leave a message for you.

Just in case that if you don’t receive our emails or phone calls, please call our 24-hour hotline at +86-18074837277 or add WeChat ID: tracy-tang829 and we will put things right.

7:00 – 8:40Hotel Pickup and Drive to Chengdu Panda Base

You will find your guide waiting for you at a previously agreed place, which is usually your hotel’s lobby, at an appointed time. For easy recognition, your guide will be holding a Trippest banner and your name.

You will then link up with your group, which will have a maximum of six members. This mini group tour is good for you to have a better experience.    

After collecting all of your group members, you will head to your first destination where you will have the opportunity to see giant pandas.

You might have a chance to see baby pandas in Chengdu Panda Base.

Additional Information
  • We don’t provide activities where you can touch pandas, such as holding pandas or joining volunteer programs.
  • Pandas are lively in the morning. Therefore, you will leave your hotel half an hour earlier to see the liveliest pandas during the day if you visit the Chengdu breeding base.
  • Keep a safe distance from the pandas during the visit. Don’t cross over the fences.
  • Take note that you will only receive free transportation if you reside within Chengdu’s three ring roads.
  • To ensure professionalism and safety, Trippest only employs drivers with over 5 years of experience.

9:00 – 11:00Visit Pandas

Our trips are designed to make sure that you enjoy a good day without wasting any time so you can spend more time with these cute pandas.

Enjoy the peaceful time available with the pandas and commit the experience to memory by taking photos and videos.

Additional Information
  • Carry a long lens if you want detailed pictures of the giant pandas. Keep in mind that you mustn’t use your flash when taking photos. Because panda’s eyes are very sensitive to light.
  • You should also resist the urge to feed the pandas. They have their own nutrition recipes. Your food is not good for them.
  • Don’t shout at the pandas, no matter how excited you are. They just don’t like to being disturbed.

Don’t worry if you are not a fan of spicy food as we will offer other dishes for you to eat. Eating in China is also an interesting learning opportunity during your trip. Your guide will show you how to use chopsticks effectively and the process of eating hot pot. We arrange for our customers to enjoy lunch with local people so that you can understand more about the local culture and lifestyle. 

Additional Information
