Three Gorges at Chiang Jiang (Yangzi) River
Cruise down river to the imfamous Three Gorges at Chiang Jiang (Yangzi) River and sourounding areas. Sadly, this tip is time sensitive for the construction of the Three Gorge Dam will leave most if not all of the attractions of the Three Gorges River Cruise underwater. So, hurry up and visit this places before mid-2003. The cruise takes you through the following destinations: Fengdu (ghost city), Shibao Tower,
Fengie, Qutang Xia (first gorge), Little Gorges, Wu Xia (Gorge), and Xiling Xia (Gorge). After the last gorge, you can opt to disembark at the city of Yichang, which is a good jump of point to see the Three Gorge Dam construction (scheduled to be done by 2009). More information on this river cruise can be found on the following tips and several pics of my trip are available on my travelogue.

In Chongqing, you can find numerous types of entertainment. To get close to the life of local people, take in some Sichuan Opera karaoke, where you can hear people excitingly chanting their favorite lines! Chongqing people are also fond of reading to expand their horizons, substantiated by the many book bars here with a relaxing environment and good books. Chongqing is also not short of nightlife. The Jiangfangbei area is the district where most bars are scattered. JJ's House Disco, on Bayi Lu, is the pick at the moment. Close by, the Silver Rock and Rainbow are also good choices.
