Chengdu Panda Base, Wenshu Monastery & Kuanzhai Alleys 1 Day City Tour

Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding is a non-profit organization engaged in wildlife research, captive breeding, conservation education, and educational tourism. Located on the Axe Hill that is 10 kilometers north of Chengdu, this 600-acre research station and breeding ground has been in operation since the year of 1987, with only six giant pandas rescued from the wild. Now the number of pandas has increased much under the careful rearing from all keepers and researchers. Wenshu Monastery houses some 300 Buddha statues of various materials including iron, bronze, stone, wood, and jade. These masterworks of art generated from ancient and contemporary China, serve as a testimony to its friendly exchanges with the world. Kuan Zhai Alley is composed of wide alley and narrow alley, in which there are a lot of traditional Siheyuan (courtyards). It is one of the hottest tourist destinations in Chengdu that well worth a visit.

 Detailed itinerary:

After lunch, you will transfer back to downtown area. Firstly you will visit Wenshu Monastery, the famous and once the largest Buddhism Temple in west Sichuan. Walking in the yard, you may feel an inner peace from heart. This monastery is also a good example of Western Sichuan gardening which is concise with primitive simplicity. Later, shift your sight to Kuanzhai Alleys. The so-called Narrow and Wide Alley shows what old Chengdu was like. It is a preserved area with refurbishment where you can see typical grey bricks used to construct buildings in ancient Chengdu. There are many handicrafts men setting stalls along the alley, including ear cleaning, sugar art and long-stemmed tobacco pipe folk. You can move slowly to get an insight of Chengdu’s leisure life from long time ago.

Return to hotel in the late afternoon.
