Encounter Adorable Pandas in a Less-Touristy Panda Base

Dujiangyan Panda Base enjoys a favorable climate and natural environment with lovely scenic surroundings. It is easy to get to the front of each panda enclosure for close-up panda photos as the park is well designed and there are reasonable visitor numbers.
