This review of our October trip is a bit late but I would have to say one of my best experiences while visiting China. We were met at our hotel by Jay, who turned out to be a very informative and personable guide for the day. Not only did he share information about the center and the pandas, but we talked about life experiences in our countries, things of interest to both of us and how we as Americans are in love with the pandas. We enjoyed acting as panda keepers while the pandas watched us clean out their areas. Feeding them their snacks was such a treat as well as just watching them eat their bamboo and sit in their enclosures. We had a nice lunch and gained lots of information from a video about the research centers. Another highlight included seeing Red Pandas and some bears at the centers.
