If you want to experience the natural wonders of this amazing country for yourself - our Dreams of Nature tour will be absolutely perfect for you

Located on the upper Yangtze River basin, Chongqing forms a peninsula of city life, surrounded by natural mountainous territory.

Known as ‘The Mountain City’, you’ll find a mixed terrain surrounding the city, which benefits from water reserves, dense forestry, mineral resources and flora and fauna. Making it a top contender of places to visit on people’s bucket lists, especially as it’s a common starting point for a Yangtze river cruise, tourists flock in from all over the world to explore the city before heading downstream to the Three Gorges.

At night, the tall skyscrapers that form the city’s sharp skyline are illuminated, making the view completely unforgettable. Take an evening stroll after enjoying a traditional Chinese Hot pot and take in the city atmosphere and lights.

Many wonderful sites are also right on your doorstep such as the UNESCO protected Dazu Rock Carvings and Wulong Karst National Geology Park.

Exclusively with Wendy Wu Tours, those flying into this charming city will no longer need to endure the laborious chore of a 10-page China Visa application or queuing to have fingerprints taken at the consulate before departing. As of 2020, when travelling with Wendy Wu Tours you can enter China via Chongqing with the worlds first e-Visa. All you have to do is provide us with a colour copy of your passport, and a passport photo and we’ll take care of the rest! 

You can take advantage of this hassle free visa on our Sichuan & Yangtze Delights tour featured below.
