Chengdu Panda Base, full name is Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, has been created and imitated the natural habitat of giant pandas in order that they might have the best possible environment for rearing and breeding. The giant pandas are not only a Chinese national treasure but are also beloved by people the world over. They are found only in Sichuan, Shaanxi and Gansu provinces. In total there are fewer than 2,000, of which 70% are distributed within the territory of Sichuan Province. Therefore, when visitors from home and abroad come to Chengdu, Sichuan, one of their main objectives will be to see this lovely animal for themselves.
The base cares also for other rare and endangered wild animals with an area of 560 mus (92 acres), 96% of which is verdure. Giant pandas, lesser pandas, black-necked cranes, white storks as well as over 20 species of rare animals are fed and bred there. Verdant bamboo, bright flowers, fresh air, a natural hill scene and a beautiful artificial view are merged ingeniously at the base.
Sichuan Cuisine Museum,Sichuan Cuisine is celebrated worldwide for its bold flavor of spiciness featuring the liberal use of garlic, chili peppers and peppercorns, which combine to make a real sensation in one's mouth.
Here in the kitchen, open to visitors for a close view of the entire cooking process, you will be encouraged to make a hands-on practice: to chop the garlic, which is one of the most prominent ingredients of Sichuan cuisine.
There's arguably no better way to know more about a cuisine than learning how to cook it yourself.
