Chongqing was mainland China's capital for a brief period, and you’ll find many interesting sites to visit today. The majestic Great Hall of the People is a symbol of the city. Zhou Enlai's old residence has been conserved almost as it was when the Communist official lived there. Explore the atmospheric town of Ciqikou, soak up the olde-worlde vibe at Hong Ya Dong, relax at Tianci Hot Springs, and admire the views from Yangtze River Cableway. Visit the Three Gorges Museum to learn about the mighty dam’s construction before setting sail along the river. Sample the spicy local hot pot; you can also ask for a spice-free version.
April, May, October, and November are the best months to visit Chongqing. Summers are often hot and muggy with thick fog. Don’t be deceived by the fog, though; you’ll still need sunscreen to avoid burning. Winters are cool and typically overcast and foggy.
