We got to hold a panda! It cost about $150 (american dollars) and you get abut 3 minutes with the panda before its passed off to the next person but it is an experience that will stay with you forever! And the $$ helps the support the Panda Research Fund. Also we were not sure about the location and almost took a 2 hour cab ride to another panda holding place (we only had a few hours before our train left). We finally had some help and it was about a 15 minute car ride from the train station.
