Volunteering at Wolong Panda Base...
, Sep 2017
Volunteering at Wolong Panda Base was a memorable and amazing experience. The day was very organised and involved various panda activities highlights include feeding a panda up close and holding a panda you have to make an additional payment but it is absolutely worth it! Our English-speaking guide, Summer, was excellent. She was very friendly, told us a lot about Chengdu and answered our questions. At the panda base she was with us at all times, helping with translation and taking photos for us Thank you Summer! I highly recommend visiting this wonderful nature reserve if you love pandas or think they are cute you will never forget this experience!
