Itinerary

  • Depart from your hotel in a comfortable air conditioned vehicle as your expert English-speaking guide leads you to the first attraction of the day - the General Joseph Stilwell Museum, founded in memory of an American general who contributed a great deal to the Chinese people in military and political capacity. General Stilwell participated in a series of political and military affairs in the CBI Theatre of World War II and cemented a profound friendship with the Chinese people fighting side-by-side in the Anti-Fascist War in China. Thereafter, head to a thousand year old building secured firmly between skyscrapers and apartment blocks – the Arhat Temple. Explore this place of worship which is also home to over a dozen monks. Admire the impressive entrance to the temple decorated with hundreds of terra-cotta sculptures. Walk around the temple with your expert heritage guide and learn all about the region’s culture. For the last leg of the tour, visit the Chongqing Zoo to see adorable Chinese pandas and watch them from a close distance! Walk through the zoo and witness the natural habitat replica. After you capture memories of these adorable bears, enjoy a comfortable journey back to your hotel where the tour comes to a close.
