It depends on when you go to hold the gaint panda. Usually they have two kind of pandas. One is the baby panda(6 months)which cost 1,000RMB, other one is the adult panda9more than 1 year)which will cost 500RMB.They say it's the donation to panda because a panda will costmore than 80,000RMB every year,including food and medical care, etc..
In the hot summer, you can't have photo with adulit one coz pandas usually dont want to go outside to take photo with people.They want to lying on their beds in their airconditioner room inside. Therefore, you only can have photo with the baby one.
After you take photo, the worker will give you a certificate, maybe a smalll souvenir too.
There is no need to reserve this,but you'd better have a friend to guide you to go there because most poeple there cant speak English and that place is totally a maze.
If you still cant find a friend be with you,maybe I can do some help. I am a local Chengdu people.Please contact me by email in advance. Thank you. I hope my advice can help you.
