Day-by-day Itinerary

Collapse All
  1. Welcome to the "Mountain City", Chongqing, one of China's most dynamic and vibrant cities! Your guide and driver will pick you up at the airport or train station, holding a welcome sign. Then, this guided 2-day Chongqing tour begins. The first stop will be the Ciqikou Ancient Town, one of the must-see attractions in Chongqing, whose history dates back to more than 1700 years ago. Most of the houses here were built during the Ming (1368-1644) and Qing Dynasties (1616-1911). Walking through the ancient streets, you will be amazed at the rich activities such as Sichuan Opera, oil making, and noodle making, which hide local culture, folklore, and religious culture.

    Then, return to downtown Chongqing to explore E'ling Park. It was built as a private garden for his father by a wealthy Chongqing merchant in the late Qing Dynasty, and was officially named E'ling Park in 1958 and opened to visitors. The S-shaped Stone Rope Bridge is one of the park's iconic attractions. The stone parapet looks like two thick and curved ropes, so it is called Rope Bridge. E'ling Park is well worth visiting with its ancient trees and dense bamboo forest.

The combination of the skyscrapers and the LRT line creates a unique cityscape. Your guide will take you to the best viewing area. After the tour, we go down to Jiefangbei, one of the iconic buildings of Chongqing. Jiefangbei records the history and culture of Chongqing.

    Finally, we visit Hongya Cave, the highlight of today's Chongqing tour! There are densely packed stilted buildings with restaurants, snack streets, bars, cafes, and local specialty shops. From the viewing platform on the top floor, one can see the scenery of the confluence of the two rivers from afar.
