Amazing Panda Keeper Day!

Our family of six with ages ranging from 23 to 76 had an absolutely brilliant day as panda keeper volunteers with our lovely guide Daisy. It was amazing to see these beautiful pandas up close and to help clean the enclosures and prepare bamboo and panda cakes for them! We even came home with our own panda keeper t-shirts to remind us of such a great day. Would definitely recommend to anyone in Chengdu , thank you Daisy from Chinahighlihgts!
