Chongqing Zoo

Chongqing Zoo

The day begins with a two hour long visit to the Three Gorges Museum. Naturally, this museum is dedicated to the Yangtze River and the Three Gorges Dam, but there are some really interesting items to be seen there that cover the most of the Chinese history with the accent on the period of the war. After this museum the tour goes to the Goose Neck Park. This is a rather big and a very peaceful place where many local citizens come to relax. Some magnificent buildings which were used as embassies are in the vicinity and there is also a very long painting of the Yangtze River in this park. The last stop of the tour is the Chongqing Zoo where you will be able to see some really rare and really beautiful animals such as golden monkeys or Asian tigers. Still, the main highlight of this zoo is the Panda Room where you can see both young and adult Giant and Red Panda bears. After the visit, there is a lunch waiting for you in the Cai Xiang Yuan Restaurant that is located within the zoo. Meals: Breakfast and a Chinese Lunch at Cai Xiang Yuan Restaurant
