Major Sites: The Giant Pandas of Chengdu
Sichuan Province and Chengdu are famous as the home of the Giant Pandas. From several videos on YouTube you get an idea why folks love the Giant Panda: Panda Research Center - Chengdu, China; Hugging the Panda Cub in Chengdu; Playing Pandas 1; Red Pandas; and Hugging FuFu. The cover article in the July 2006 issue of National Geographic is about the Giant Pandas of Western China. To learn more see links to articles on the Giant Panda. I'm looking forward to visiting the Wolong Giant Panda Research Center and the Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Research Base and maybe I'll get to hug a Giant Panda! Also, see Frommer's.
