Great walk after seeing the pandas

After seeing the pandas, I decided to walk back via the trail which is quite easy to find after a short walk on the road from the panda base. It's not a true nature hike, as the path is almost entirely in concrete. Nevertheless, the weather was a cooling

Historical yet remains for tourists

The existence of this historical continues only due to the large numbers of tourists who fill the streets and local shops. Without tourists there would be little to it, yet it caters well for visitors by having salespeople speaking varying languages, easy
