Pandas of Chengdu. Travel Theme/Endearing

Cute animals and babies immediately come to mind when considering this week’s travel theme topic, Endearing, nominated by Ailsa, of  Where’s My Backpack. How cute and endearing are Pandas!OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

A visit to the Giant Panda Breeding Research Base (Xiongmao Jidi) in Chengdu, Sichuan Province, China is an enjoyable day out. The pandas have acres of bamboo forest to enjoy, the nursery pandas are kept separately, and there is a birthing section, complete with all the paraphernalia of a maternity hospital.


The park itself is huge, with large promenades of bamboo forests, a large lake and an excellent restaurant where you, like the pandas, can enjoy a plate of bamboo, pickled and steamed.  Like everything else in China, the park and facilities are spotlessly clean and a pleasure to visit.

  1. I wonder if that Panda’s mum told it not to run with a sharp stick in hand? I’ve never known Pandas to move very fast, though, so am assuming it’s not a problem! Very cute photos.


  2. Those pandas look happier than the ones I saw in Chiang Mai. A good choice for endearing. For me a very difficult theme.


    1. It was a great day out, the Pandas, the Park itself and our friends who accompanied us. The standards of zoo keeping are excelled in this facility. They are cute and fascinating, for animals that just eat all day.


Now over to you.
