Hao Hao and Xing Hui are no ordinary visitors to Belgium. These furry animals are China’s favourite pandas and have just arrived in Belgium on a 15-year loan from China. They traveled in a pagoda-style cage onboard a cargo plane from China and were taxied into their arriving terminal through an arc of water from Belgian firefighters. But the VIP treatment doesn’t stop there.

These pandas were taken to the Pairi Daiza zoo via police escort, with people even lining the streets to welcome them into their new home. No one ever welcomes me to a new home like that!
