Tips from local tour guide

1. Dujiangyan Panda Park provides panda works for volunteer workers. Its mission is to raise money for panda protection and to give people knowledge about giant pandas to raise the awareness of protecting wild lives and nature. And it also provides opportunities for visitors/workers to have close experience with the lovely pandas.

2. July to September is the tourism peak season. Reservation has to be made at least 3 weeks before the final tour date.

3. The volunteer fee 700 Chinese yuan is charged by the base when you sign up for your work. Cash in Chinese yuan preferred. If you only have limited time, you can do a half day work, which will also cost 700 yuan.

4. If you you need, we can also help to book hotels in Chengdu and arrange airport/train pick-up and drop-off.

5. At Dujiangyan Panda Base, there is also a donation project which allows you to cuddle a panda/photo with a panda. This costs 1800 Chinese yuan per person. This will also need to be booked before hand, preferably 2 weeks in advance.
