Things to Do in Chongqing in November

Take a Daning River Cruise

The Lesser Three Gorges: This is called a "must see" by many tourists. The cold nights add reds, browns, and yellows to the verdant green of the canyon walls. The emerald green color of the river contrasts with the muddy brown water of the Yangtze. It makes for an interesting half-day side trip before or after a Yangtze cruise.

Shop and Sightsee at Ciqikou

Ciqikou Old Town: This favorite tourist shopping area has old architecture that dates from the era when it was a porcelain manufacturing and merchant center. You can shop for porcelain, silver, tea, souvenirs, and other Chinese products.

Explore Wulong Karst

Wulong Karst: This famed World Heritage listed park is four hours from Chongqing. Early fall is a good time to hike there. There are large caves and three natural stone bridges averaging 200 meters high and 200 meters wide.

See the Pandas

Chongqing Zoo has a fine group of pandas, both the big black and white ones and the cat-like playful red pandas, and other exotic creatures in a large park.
