In the morning, you’ll be escorted to train station by high-speed train to Chongqing, about 2 hours. Be met at train station and begin your tour in Chongqing. You will explore three must-see famous Chongqing attractions: the Eling Park, Ciqikou Old Town and the Three Gorges Museum.

First, you’ll visit Erling Park. It is one of the old private gardens in Chongqing, built in late Qing Dynasty around 1909 AD. Due to its relatively high altitude, there you can have a bird's eye view of the whole city.

Ciqikou Old Town was Chongqing's old harbor and was once the home of many of Chongqing's rich merchants, where you can still see lots of Ming and Qing dynasty architecture, local shops, tea houses, local Sichuan street performance and so on.

The last stop of the day is the famous Three Gorges Museum - the largest monographic museum. The exterior of the museum has cambered walls and vitreous dome, representing the history & culture of Three Gorges Project and its origins.

Transfer to the airport or port for your departure flight or cruise. Service ends.
