A trip to the research base of Giant Panda and ancient village Huang Long Xi. The panda research center is one of the reasons why the panda has recently been removed from the list of endangered species to vulnerable status. A big achievement for the conservation efforts.
After seeing the pandas we had lunch with traditional Sichuan food with a mix of more ‘exotic’ food such as rabbit head and other more usual but very delicious dishes. Following the nice meal, we had a walk in the ancient village to get a feel of how ancient China might have looked and feeled like.
At the end of the day, some teachers stayed over in Chengdu and went out for some drinks and enjoyed the nightlife of this great city.
Overall it was a great day and a chance for our TEFL teachers in China to have a chat, mingle with new friends, take lots of pictures with the pandas and have lots of fun with us.
