The hostel was nice and it was brand new although you felt like you were sat in IKEA as everything was bought from there. There wasn't much to do in Chengdu but we went for a walk and crossed a bridge that had hundreds and hundreds of bats flying above for some reason.
The next day we went to see the pandas at the research centre, they were separated by age but all of them looked really cute, we were lucky that we saw large older ones and babies that were about a month old, they were so small its crazy that they get so big. The Chinese were annoying though because there were signs everywhere that said be quiet, don't litter, don't taunt, don't smoke etc. But the Chinese did the opposite to all of these signs. The pandas were definitely a highlight of the trip though.
We got back to the hostel and were really hungry but no one around sold any food so a girl at the hostel made us an egg and salad sandwich with a bit of ketchup, but it was a really nice change to the usual sloppy noodle soup.
We got a taxi to the train station, the taxis in China are good because they don't rip you off and go by the Meter which more times than not cost us less than what the hostels said it would. We got to the train station that was brand new and absolutely huge, much bigger than a lot of airports and really modern, we had a bit of a wait here before getting to our high speed train to Chongqing
