Ni hao and welcome to Chengdu, the hometown of the Giant Pandas!

Day2  Dujiangyan Giant Panda Base Volunteer Work
We will get an early start this morning as your tour guide and driver will pick you and your family up from your hotel around 7 a.m. for the 90-minute drive to the Dujiangyan Panda Base for the opportunity to work as a volunteer at the base from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

There are more than 40 giant pandas and 5 red pandas at the Dujiangyan Panda Base. During this special one-day panda volunteer program, you will have the opportunity to act as honorary panda keepers by cleaning up bamboo, sweeping up panda poop, washing the enclosures, observing and understanding the pandas’ status and living conditions, and preparing food for the pandas. You will get to experience the fun of making a “Panda’s Cake” and deliver fruit to the pandas yourself while learning about the pandas’ diets. Watch a free panda documentary that tells all about the science of a panda’s life and how humans are trying to protect them and how we can live in harmony with these wonderful creatures. You will also be able to plant bamboo shoots and trees, and create name tags as well as other more interesting and meaningful activities that help with caring for the pandas. After your day of helping the pandas, you will receive an official certificate from CCRCGP designating you as a Giant Panda Caretaker as well as other souvenirs such as a panda badge, a panda t-shirt and a panda club magazine.

After your exciting day up close and personal with the pandas, we will take you back to your hotel in Chengdu to relax for the night.

Note for today’s trip:
1) Volunteer work for children: Children must be more than 12 years old to partake in the Panda Volunteer Program. If they are under 12 years old, special activities can be arranged so that they can interact with the pandas – please contact our friendly travel consultants for more information.
2) The Dujiangyan Panda Base can accept up to 20 volunteer workers per day. If you want to be a panda volunteer, you should apply at least one week in advance with the official application form and Health Examination Form (a valid medical certificate with a doctor’s signature) that can be done in either your home country or in China.

Accommodation:Overnight in Chengdu

Day3  Morning Chengdu Tour – Afternoon Departure from Chengdu
After breakfast, we will take you to visit the sacred Wenshu Temple, which is hidden in a peaceful location right in the middle of modern Chengdu. This temple is the most popular Buddhist temple in the Chengdu region. With its beautiful, traditional and ancient architecture, the atmosphere is very calm and quiet, with some people praying, right in the midst of a busy and modern urban city. The grounds have a small garden and the monastery is very colorfully decorated, making it a fascinating place to visit.

After the Wenshu Temple, we will experience the leisurely pace of the life of the locals at Renmin Park and Jinlin Street. Renmin (People’s) Park is where the locals go for a relaxing walk, to meet friends or have a cup of tea. Jinli Street, by contrast, is a street mainly for tourists but it does offer a view of the way things were in ancient times. You can wander along this traditional old street to absorb the special atmosphere of Chengdu while tasting the local snacks, watching street performers, etc.

After the tour, we will take you to the Chengdu airport or train station for your departing flight or train on to your next destination.

My first and only group tour trip so far. What shall I say? Everything worked like a clockwork. My group mates where great and we had a lot of fun (and celebrated new year successfully). The travel agency (asia Odyssey travel) was definitely a good choice. The advises and caretaking I got from my agency (thanks amy, you are an angel ) was better then the one of my other group members (we talked about it openly). I'm lucky that I choose this trip, tour and agency. It was a good experience and I can definitely recommend it if you like a good and organized tour through tibet.

Last week we (4 of us) traveled to Tibet one way by train and return by flight.

Upon arrival to Lhasa a tour guide Mr. Chimpel waited for us in the train station and took us to the hotel.

A first class hotel big rooms very clean and best restaurants.

The guide made a plan for the 3 days tour including all relevant sites of Lhasa and out of town.

He's very knowledgeable and I feel like being in a class.

At the end we (all the four of us) were very grateful to Amy who arrange all and our travel agency Asia Odyssey Travel.

I will definitely recommend your office to any friend who will want to visit Tibet

Best wishes.

Wonderful moments in Tibet thanks to Odyssey Travel. It was all so well organized thanks to Amy who had been so professional and supportive.

The beauty of landscapes and people in Tibet were simply mesmerizing. Our guide and driver were amazing companions for this travel. The Kora of Mount Khalash was the highlight of this wonderful journey. I learned a lot about the culture of Tibet.

Thank you Odissey!

Tibet has been one of my top travel destinations. As a Buddhism, visiting places tapping into sacred goddess and Mother Nature becomes a dream for me to achieve. At the age of 40, I am so happy I have finally made my dream come true.

The trip planning to Tibet has never been easy for Taiwanese. To grant a permit by a trust worthy travel agent is already a hassle, my first trip plan didn’t get though two years ago. I am glad I found odyssey travel agent for my second try. The whole process started off with zero trust, trip advisor and Facebook helped me to validate its credibility, and further more I had even asked for reference check from the agent. Thanks Kay for being a nice and patient coordinator during this planning process.

With all had prepared, our group has been one of the most peaceful and harmony travel company I have been with. With years of experience, I have not been with a group of >20 until this time, apart from school and company team building. To spend 9 days with who I meet the first time and could probably the only time caused me zero worry with the brilliant tour guide Xiao Gao!

If you’ll and would like to have a joyful and unforgettable journey in Tibet, going up to the Everest base camp is definitely the only option. So is odyssey travel.

It was the first time we went to Tibet. Too much things we need to arrange, itinerary, travel date, tickets, permit…We were lucky to have had Kay handle our plan. She was professional, efficient and dealt everything in order. Our trip went smoothly as planned. We visited Lhasa, yamdroke lake, Everest, the beauty of Tibet was beyond my expectation except the altitude sickness.

We had a unique travel experience in Tibet specailly the landscapes we saw and local people we met.

Both of our tour guide and driver were excellent, our guide had a vast knowledge about the areas that we visited and also had extensive knowledge with the culture and history of Tibet. All the way, he made sure that we were comfortable with all aspects of the day. The place that he set for each day was appropriate for our abilities, because the tour schedule allowed for a slower start and initial days in Lhasa to adjust to the altitude. Also, the schedule did not put too much into one day. Once we departed from Lhasa and went to the higher altitudes, we did not have any problems with the heights because we were acclimated already, so a good schedule arrangment is very crucial for first-time tourists to Tibet. Our driver was very polite and accommodating person too, he always picked up us from the hotel on time every day and drove in a very safe manner and made us feel comfortable during the trip, he was a very nice man.

Additionally, I never forget the blue sky and white cloud in Tibet, everywhere is so gorgeous that could rarely see in big cities, we love it so much and hoped to stay there longer time. But only one point I want to tell here, the 3 star standard hotel in Tibet actaully is not really equal to 3 star standard hotel I ever stayed in domestic big cities of China, so choose 4 star hotel is suggested, I think it would be much more comfortable stay in the trip. Overall, the Tibet tour was excellent, here I much thanks to our travel agency Odyseey and consultant Amy for everything you did for us for the trip, thank you!!
