Day Activities Hotel
DAY 01 Arrive in Chongqing

You will fly into the Chongqing airport, and upon arrival you’ll be met by your travel guide, who will then take you to your hotel. This huge city, both in terms of land size and total population, is near the end of the navigable part of the Yangtze River for large ships. It was a part of Sichuan Province, but it was made a “municipality” in 1997. In China, a municipality is a big city with a big territory. Chongqing is one of four municipalities in the country. It is a city with a long history, and it was important as an inland port near the rich Sichuan region. Traders came to Chongqing overland and by river. It is located at the place where the Jialing River meets the Yangtze River.

After you unpack your things, the rest of the night can be spent at your discretion. You might want to pay a visit to the nearby Pipa mountain, where after a short climb you will be treated to a bird’s eye view of the city, which is even more incredible at night, with neon and lights that fill up the sky.

3 or 4 star for common; 5 star for deluxe
DAY 02 Chongqing (B, L)

Following breakfast in the hotel we’ll get started with a visit to the Stillwell Musem. This former house was once used by the National Government as the house for distinguished guests. After General Joseph W. Stilwell's arrival in Chongqing on March 4, 1942, the place was made his headquarters and residence. Every time when he came to Chongqing during his two-year-and-eight-month service in China Theatre, the general lived here and conducted military conferences, held press meeting and met Chinese and foreign visitors.

The house was reconstructed and used be the government after 1949. It was turned into the Gen. Stillwell museum in 1991 by the Chongqing People's Municipal government. On display in the museum is an extensive display of mostly US-supplied photos, documents, articles and video.

After our time at the Stillwell Museum you’ll learn a little bit more about the history of Chongqing at the Chongqing (also known as the Three Gorges) Museum. The museum has four big themes: “The Splendid Three Gorges,” “The Very Ancient Ba Yu,” “The Urban Development of Chongqing,” and “The Anti-Japanese Days.” There are displays of antique art. There is a large model of the entire dam project, and information is presented about this impressive engineering achievement. There are also films shown about the bombing of Chongqing during WWII by Japanese planes and about the natural scenery in the Three Gorges area before the construction of the dam.

One of the reasons the building was built was to house the relics from the sites destroyed by the construction of the 3 Gorges Dam. So you’ll find displays of saved artifacts from sites all over the huge submerged area. The shape of the building itself is like that of a large dam. There is a blue sunscreen in front that may represent the water of the Yangtze River or the lake itself held by the dam.

There are also dinosaur skeletons on display that are from nearby Zigong in Sichuan Province and places around there. The Dashanpu dinosaur fossil site in Zigong held numerous fossil skeletons.

To cap off our touring for the day we’ll take a stroll through the iconic village of Ciqikou.
It was once was a prominent market and trade town next to Chongqing. In the Ming Dynasty, it was a river port and market town. Goods were transported over land and water. Some buildings have been renovated and preserved. Along the streets are shops for porcelain and other items and many restaurants and snack shops. So while you are shopping, you can eat and drink beverages at the same time. Some of the teahouses have performances of traditional Chinese music. It is a place to see more of how Chongqing used to be, eat and shop.

Afterward, you can spend the rest of the evening at your own discretion. However, you might want to sample some of the local food, which is part of the Sichuan family of spicy cuisine. The most popular choice of course, is hot pot. A booming business all-year-round, hot pot is a thriving local tradition in Chongqing. Come nightfall, hot pot restaurants and numerous sidewalk stands open for business. Adorned with strand after strand of colorful lights, hot pot businesses come in all different shapes and sizes. You will find that some are small, intimate shops, while others consist of only a few tables with umbrella covering for an alfresco dining experience. You can find these hot pot spots easily on many lanes and streets. On average, a hot pot dinner should cost no more than 20 rmb per person.
