will be in Chengdu next month, arriving in the afternoon one day, having the next full day then leaving the following morning.Like most, am intending to spend as much time seeing pandas as necessary. I just want to go and have the best experience and dont mind the extra drive if its worth it. Would be interested to hear any comments or suggestions. Thanks.
