Giant Pandas are considered a national treasure and they are loved by almost everyone across the world. Rolling and goofing around, falling asleep randomly and overflowing with adorability these furry giants have won the hearts of young and old alike over the years. Giant Pandas are only natively found in the Sichuan, Shaanxi and Gansu provinces and in total there are less than 2000 of them. Most visitors coming to Sichuan look to paying a visit to these black and white balls of fur at some point during their holiday.
The Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding is located only about 10 kilometres away from downtown and is made in imitation of the natural habitat of the Panda. Bamboo, fresh air, beautiful flowers, natural hills and artificial landscape form a perfect setting here in which the Giant Pandas could be bred and reared. If you happen to visit the base, be sure to visit their museum too so that you could take a look at how they have evolved. There are many serviced apartments in Chengdu such as the Ascott Raffles City Chengdu and many others that are available to provide comfortable and easily accessible accommodation for you should you feel to stay the night in the area.
A large number of plants and many bamboo bushes have been cultivated at the base so that the Pandas would feel comfortable and also provide them with their staple food source. At the end of their breeding, the Giant Pandas are released into the wild so that they could live among their own species in their natural habitat. The Giant panda Museum was opened in the year 1993 to ensure the growth of public education and scientific education in the protection of these animals and their habitat. This is also known as the only thematic museum in the world for a rare and endangered species of animal.
