Zoo in Chongqing
Even a brief visit to the Zoo in Chongqing is worthwhile because you can observe many pandas at close quarters, while in Sichuan they are nearly extinct in the wild. An early start is necessary if you wish to see the Panda feeding at 9 am. However, this is also when most of the rest of the tourists will be present.
Cableway across the Yangtze River
The cableway across the Yangtze River was put into operation in 1987 to increase the efficiency of transport between the Yuzhong and Nan’an districts in Chongqing without building expensive new bridges. With a span of 1,166 meters (3800 feet), it is much longer than its sister cableway across the Jialing River (1982-2011), but this latter is already no longer in operation. Huge bridges will soon carry the CRT Line 6 over the Jialing River leading to Jiefangbai and finally over the Yangtze River, so there is concern that the Yangtze Cableway will be abandoned.
