Trip Notes for China Panda Tours

A Furry Tale about China Highlights and Giant Pandas

In 2007, Andreas and Vlasta were the first customers to book a panda keeper program with China Highlights. So far, they have traveled with us to Chengdu seven times to be panda keepers.

Now, China Highlights has become the tour operator with the biggest collaboration with Dujiangyan Panda Base, where the keeper programs are now run.

Back in 2007, China Highlights was the first tour company in China to offer a panda keeper program. Since then we have helped over 2,300 customers to fulfill their panda dreams.


Top Faqs about China Panda Tour

1. Where can I see pandas?

The best place to see giant pandas is surely at their hometown – Chengdu. It's the only place in the world to be a panda keeper and take a photo next to a panda.

If you would like to see wild pandas in nature, we can arrange wild panda tracing tour in Wolong nature reserve for you. Travel Wolong with China Highlight, you will also have a chance to spend a private evening night with panda!

You can also see giant pandas in zoos of the following cities: Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing, Guilin and Hong Kong.

2. What's the best time to see pandas?

During daytime, it is best to visit during their meal or playing times. Early in the morning 08:30 to 10:30 is very suitable, when pandas come out to eat and play. March to May is the "falling in love period" for pandas, so baby pandas are usually born between June and September. If you come between September and December, you will have a greater chance of seeing cative baby pandas in the panda bases.
