The day begins with pickup from your hotel at 8:30am for the half-hour drive to the Chengdu Panda Base (Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding), a research and breeding facility for giant pandas.
Your guide will lead you through the facility: at many times of year, you can see almost every stage of the panda life-cycle, from cubs in adorable cots to adolescents and adults in leafy enclosures. Capture photos of this endangered species eating bamboo, sleeping, or galumphing about, as you learn exactly why they're endangered and what the center is doing to help.
No trip to Sichuan's capital would be complete without trying Sichuan food, and one classic dish stands out: hot pot! Your next stop in Chengdu is a hot pot restaurant where you can add ingredients of your choice – meat, vegetables, seafood, and more – to a simmering metal pot full of delicious stock. (You can choose between Sichuan spicy and numbing flavor or a milder version for delicate palates.)
After lunch, it's time to learn a little Sichuan history as your guide escorts you to the Wuhou Temple, dedicated to the Marquis of Wu, also known as Zhuge Liang. Your guide will explain why this third-century strategist and leader is so revered, and how he served his people during challenging times.
From here, stroll down Jinli Street, a rebuilt street that captures the style of ancient West Sichuan. With its wooden buildings and scarlet lanterns, it's highly atmospheric: it takes its name from a street that was famous during China's early imperial history, around 2,000 years ago.
Finally, drive to a teahouse in Chengdu Culture Park to enjoy Sichuan's answer to Beijing opera: Sichuan opera. Enjoy a performance packed with wit, humor, lively dialogue, amazing acrobatics, dancing, acting, puppetry, and music, with costumes and sets so dazzling it won't matter if you don't speak Chinese. From here, you'll drive a few minutes back to your hotel, arriving around 5:30pm.
