Sightseeing in Chongqing

- Three Gorges Dam


China's showpiece of engineering might and love of things on a massive scale is not without its detractors, who lament the sinking of many towns and villages that the dam's creation will cause. Nevertheless, river boat tours of the area and the dam itself are one of the main reasons tourists venture to Chongqing.


- Arhat Temple


The Arhat Temple is an important ancient Buddhist temple and monastery. It was originally built in 1067, but has since been rebuit numerous times. When you visit, you will find the Four Guardians of the World, the Stele Kiosk of the Ming Dynasty, and the ancient Buddhist cliff inscriptions of the Northern Song Dynasty. There is also a vegetarian restaurant on the grounds where you can enjoy a nice lunch.


Transportation in Chongqing

The Chongqing monorail is part of the city's mass transit system and it is an excellent way to navigate the downtown area. It doesn't run too far from the center of the city but the underground light rail is undergoing continuing expansion into all major areas of the metropolitan area.


The public bus system is cheap and cheerful, but signs and timetables are written only in Chinese. Airport buses run between downtown Chongqing and Chongqing Jiangbei International Airport (CKG), but there is no rail link with the airport. The hilly topography of the city makes bicycle travel next to impossible.
