In June, Xiamen was already sweltering. Only a few tourists were outside, that makes the park so quiet and peaceful. The giant panda brothers also abandoned the luxury playground outside and rest leisurely inside the house to enjoy the cool air. According to the administrator, they have built a big and multifunctional panda house to make the pandas lives better, the playground covers an area of 3000 square meters, including two outdoor playgrounds with an area of 350 square meters, two indoor exhibition halls with an area of 200 square meters, and the panda house is also equipped with six indoor enclosures, exercise rooms, treatment rooms, bamboo storage rooms, monitoring rooms and so on. The indoor exhibition hall and enclosures are equipped with 20 high-powered air conditioners to ensure the pandas don't get hot. In addition, there are also artificial rocks, chairlifts, perches, pools and trees for them to play on.

According to their keeper, after coming to Xiamen, the elder brother, Si Nian, has a special liking to the tree here, he has become a "Climb Master". While the younger brother, Si Junjun, turned into the director of the "demolition office" and various plants and enrichment facilities have been devastated by his paws. Just in the first year, the keepers have built six swings for him.

We also learned that these twins are not only the super stars in Xiamen, but also the ambassador for Taiwan exchanges and scientific studies for children. We hope they can live here happily and also increase the contribution of the Cross-strait exchange and scientific education.
