Things to Do in Chongqing in July

In July, you can duck indoors to museums or malls if it is hot or use the long summer days to explore. It is also good month for a river cruise on the Daning and Yangtze.

Daning River Cruise

The Lesser Three Gorges: It is a good time to see the lush green gorges. Both the water and the landscape are green contrasting with the muddy brown color of the Yangtze. Most tourists say that the scenery is better than at the big Three Gorges. Cool river breezes help you to stay cool.

Shop at Ciqikou

Ciqikou Old Town: You can walk the many lanes, shop, and see the old architecture. This isn't an area for bargain hunting as much as for recreation. Try the Sour and Hot Noodles as in the picture above. It helps you feel better in muggy weather.

See the Stillwell Museum

Stillwell Museum: This museum is for people interested in WWII history. It was the former cottage of General Stillwell who helped defend China in the war.
