Tour details:

Private Chengdu Highlights Panda Experience
This private day tour puts you closer to Chengdu’s cutest inhabitant, the giant panda. You’ll arrive at Chengdu Panda Base for feeding time, before calling to see baby pandas at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. After time for lunch, you’ll tour the nearby alleys to the Panda Post, the only postal service in the world with a giant panda theme. Send postcards home, stamped with the giant panda motif, then head over to Chunxi Road for a photo call with artist Lawrence Argent’s giant 45ft-tall panda structure.

Best of Shanghai Tour
Spend a day getting to know the wonders of Shanghai. Highlights include the beautiful traditional Yu Garden and Old Market Town, the spectacular Bund, a choice of Pearl City or Silk Factory tours, the serene Jade Buddha Temple, and the Xin Tian Di district, Shanghai’s entertainment hub.
