Our Dear Guest Chalotte Hug Panda at Dujiangyan Panda Base

If you are a super fan of Giant Panda, you must have been dreaming of hugging a real Giant Panda for a long time. Now it is time to realize your dream. Currently you can hug a panda in Sichuan Province, the hometown of Giant Panda in China. Specifically there are three places to hug a panda - Dujiangyan Panda Base, Wolong Shenshuping Panda Panda, Ya'an Bifengxia Panda Base. You must be wondering which panda base to choose?

Hug Panda at Dujiangyan Panda Base

Dujiangyan Panda Base is recommended most because it is the nearest one. It is only 60km from the downtown Chengdu. Driving about 1 hour in the morning, you can get to the base before 9am, and won't miss any highlighting activity of the whole volunteering program. Besides if you have free time, you can also go to visit the famous World Heritage Sites Dujiangyan Irrigation Project and Qingchengshan Mountain.

Hug Panda at Wolong Shenshuping Panda Base

The Shenshuping Panda Base in Wolong Panda Reserve also allows its visitors to hug a panda. It is about 110km (about 2 hours' driving from Chengdu). The hugging experience is the same. The highlight here is its wilder environment for Giant Pandas. Also there are a lot of pandas there, from panda babies to adult pandas.

Ya'an Bifengxia Panda Base

Bifengxia Panda Base in located in Ya'an, western Sichuan Province. It might be the most panda base for volunteering. You can also hug a panda in this base. From Chengdu, you have to drive about 2 hours to get there. The road condition is quite well.
