What would you recommend to do in Chongqing for a 2 days weekend end of November?
And do you have any tips how to go from the airport to downtown/ the train stations?
Many thanks in advance!
Hello, I plan to fly from Hong Kong to Guiyang in early September to teach English in Tongzi. If I fly into the airport at Guiyang how do I get to the bus station to get a bus to Tongzi ? Thank you.
I have a flight from Chongqing to Lijiang at 12:40 am, I would like to know if there are buses in the morning starting at 07:00 am, from Dazu to Chongqing. Thank you very much for the help!
We are flying in from Europe and have a transfer flight in Chongqing airport 8 hours later, so was thinking to lock in our luggage and go see the city..

I am planning my China trip in May. I will start that from Chongqing, visiting Dazu caves. Then I would like to move to Chengdu, visiting Leshan and Emeishan on my way. I will be mostly using public transport. Could you please advise me whether any public transport is available from Dazu to Leshan and/or Emeishan. If yes, where can I find a timetable? Many thanks in advance.:)
I did the wendy wo grand tour of China and it was fantastic BUT i did it with my wife's best girlfriend. the wife did not want to go.
I have a very special friend in Chongqing and would like to spend a few days there with him and his family.
seems wendy wo does not like breaking tours so i need a local company who can organize everything.
would like to revisit Beijing,Xian,Kunming,Hanzou,souchow, Shanghai and Chongqing.
all the hotels we had were 4 star and they were wonderful in my opinion.
we did the Yangtizi Cruise but my girlfriend reported a strange smell - I enjoyed the trip very much but she was sick.
please advise who you would suggest as a travel company
i plan to go to chongqing and three gorges. i do not know whether i should find a local travel service in chongqing or not, such as Meiyatravel.com. what should i do?
We will be in Chongqing in september and want to go to Dazu Caves/Buddha,
I've found a lot of info on the web, but I cannot find if you can go by bus,
I think we need to book a tour?? Does someone know a good travel agency where I can book this trip, or a tip on how you visited Dazu from Chongqing? Look forward to your replies.
Sorry for the glitch in my last post. The place I want to go to is in Wulong County, widely known as the "Three Natural Bridges" (tian-keng-san-qiao).
Hello. I will be going to Chongqing in early May and would like to visit the 武隆天龙天坑. Please can someone advise if it is better to take a bus or hire a car for the day trip? How does anyone do it?

3) when is the good time to visit, over all, april? when it is not too hot or cold and not a lot of ppl
Planning a trip and thinking to go to this area and explore on the Three Gorgess Cruise. Does anybody know if there is anything much left to see.
Should we avoid the area totaly?
I hear very mixed reviews about the much hyped Yangtze River Cruise. Is it really what's it's cracked up to be? Anyone has a positive experience?
I'll be in Chongqing in Dec for a few days. I want to get a good violin for intermediate to advanced use. I heard that Guangzhou is the wholesale place that manufactures the country's violins but I won't be visiting Quangzhou at all. Can anyone tell me if it is possible to get a good violin at a cheap price in Chongqing? If yes, where should I go down to? Are there specific luthier workshops that I can visit instead of buying from music stores which tend to sell relatively expensive? Thanks.
We'll be arriving Chongqing Train Station for my onward bus journey to Dazu. As we intend to stay only 1 night in Dazu, we do not want to lug all our belongings along.
Are there any 'left luggage' counter or lockers available at the Train Station or the Long Distance Bus Station? I understand that both are next to each other.
Appreciate any advice.
I understand the train from Xian to Chongqing, originates from Lhasa.
Is it difficult to get "soft sleepers" in the month of August?
Is this train always full?
Appreciate your replies.
I'm B Y, new member hoping to learn more here.
Planning to travel to China in August and Chongqing is part of the travel.
1. Which shore excursion is better, Shennong Stream or Less Three Gorges?
2. Visit to Dazu Grottoes, stay overnight in Chongqing, travel next morning or go direct to Dazu, visit early next morning? Arriving CQ early afternoon.
Appreciate any comments. Details will be good.
Hi. I've lived for 2.5years in China, spending 6 months at a time in one place, and Chongqing is next. Any advice to help me settle in easier will be much appreciated such as: what's the best area to live in? how do I find a good apartment? I presently teach English at a number of companies for EF, who is best to approach for work? is there a useful local website etc etc. thanking you in anticipation.
What about the ships, Cabins?
My girlfriend and I have about 4 hours to spemd in YiChang on July 17.
Our cruise ships docks about noon and our Hainan Air Flight departs for Xi'an at 19:00. I really don't wish to spend the afternoon in the YiChang Airport from what I've heard. I believe it is about 45 minutes from dock to airport by taxi?
Anyone spent an afternoon in YiChang?
I'll have seen the Dam from the Cruise Excursion
A nice lunch and a stroll down a real China street or two with a walk along the docks sounds pleasant? Any memorable sites / experience in YiChang?
I haven't come up with anything to do in YiChang that does not take over an hour drive to get there?
We were hoping to visit the Chongqing Zoo, but need to know the hours of operation. We will be there on a Monday.
We were also wondering about the state of the Three Gorges - our cruise is already booked (we leave 11 July) so we hope that we will be able to see some of their beauty.
Thank you in advance for your reply!
We are considering doing one of the cruises in early July (because that's when we'll be there; it'd be a bit silly to do a cruise when we're not there. But I digress...) and are just curious about the state of the river. Are the gorges still "worth" seeing or are we better off spending our time elsewhere? On the one hand, the cruises aren't cheap, we're not the sort of travellers who would ordinarily do a cruise, and we have limited time in China on this trip. On the other hand, we'll never get to see the gorges again before they're fully flooded, so it's now or never and even if there are better places (eg Yangshou) they'll still be there for later trips.
So we're prepared to do the cruise even if it's not what it used to be, but there's that nagging doubt that at the end of it we'll think "well, we enjoyed a couple of hours of that cruise but the rest was a bust". Then again, once it's gone it's gone... aaarrgh indecisions indecisions
If we *do* go there we only have a choice of two ships because of our travel dates, the 'Oriental Emperor' and 'Yangtze Paradise'. Any opinions on these two cruisers?
And finally, we've read a forum tip about buying your tickets at the docks themselves rather than through an agency for big savings. Unfortunately we'll arrive in Chongqing the day before the boat "leaves" (that is, boarding is scheduled for that evening and physically departing the next morning) and that would be cutting it too fine to risk booking it that way. Any recommendations on good reliable tour companies that we could book with?
Thanks for making it all the way to the end of this post! :)
My home won't be finished built so I need to rent an apartment close to BaiHe Road Nanping, for my wife and I. Can anyone help? Thanks-Allen
I'm a US citizen. How much money can I take into China leagally?
Many people say Chongqing is very, very hot in the summer. How would it compare to the weather in Florida USA? Florida is very hot and humid, is Chongqing the same or hotter because it is inland and not near the ocean. I only ask about Florida because that is where I live now. Our summer days average is 33.3C or 92 degrees F....
I am actually doing research for a fiction story idea where part of the story unfolds in Chongqing. I am trying to find out whether there are any docks in the city itself where a person can board either a short tour boat, a river crossing boat, or a longer trek cruise ship? Thanks
Any idea how stable the Yuan is going to be in the next year to five years?
