Meet your guide at the lobby of your hotel in Chongqing city centre to start this tour.

First you will visit Chongqing People’s Auditorium; built between 1951 and 1954. It is not only one of the major landmarks of Chongqing, but features an axially symmetric layout consisting of four buildings: the main auditorium, the east wing, south wing, and north wing. In total, it covers 25,000 square meters, and demonstrates the incredible contrasts between different styles of traditional Chinese palace architecture.

Then you will visit Ciqikou Old Town to capture a bit of old Chongqing. During the Ming and Qing dynasties, it was famous for its production of porcelain. Today you can visit the tea bars, artists’ studios, and embroidery workshops to examine some of the local arts and crafts of the region. You’ll also be introduced to the unique folk opera.

Finally, you will visit Hongya Dong, where you’ll be able to see some of the sculptures in the traditional Bayu architectural style, and do some shopping as well. This is the perfect place to get souvenirs for yourself or friends and family from home.

Here you will have some free time to walk around before being transferred back to your hotel or anyplace you want to go in Chongqing city centre.
