If you're going to be in the Sichuan part of China, a visit to the Chengdu Panda Center is a must. This breeding center is home to more than 100 giant pandas, all of which can be viewed in open-air enclosures. If you're lucky you'll catch a glimpse of the youngsters at play as they tumble and roll over each other. A highlight of the tour is the nursery, where visitors can watch itty-bitty pandas sleeping in incubators. And for roughly the equivalent of $150, you can pay to hold and hug a young panda.
