You will see pandas being taken care of and fed with bamboos, fruits, cookies and other food, playing with each other, climbing on the trees, and rolling around on the ground. Next, we will head for the Olympic Parks to fly kites. There are all kinds of beautiful kites on sale in the park, you can just buy one and fly there. It would also be a great time for bounding between families. After the kite flying, you can take some amazing pictures of the park and marvel at the characteristic architectures built here.

Don’t worry, the next destination for you is the Yandai Xiejie where you can see a variety of restaurants, teahouses, stores, cafes, etc. We will choose a quiet teahouse and help you order a cup of nice tea.
