Where to Go in Chongqing in May

As the daytime temperature in May is not very high, outdoor activities are OK. Wansheng Stone Forest Scenic Area is a good option, which was verified as the most ancient stone forest in China and can be traced back to about 460 million years ago. It is a typical Karst site integrating mountains, waters, forests, stones and caves. There you can see stones in various shapes such as fan, drum, tower and animals.

The night view of Chongqing is unmissable. Well-known places to appreciate the city's charming night view are Nanshan Single Tree Overlooking Stand, Kansheng Pavilion in Eling Park and Hongxing Pavilion in Pipa Mountain Park. Alternatively you can cruise on the Yangtze River and Jialing River to appreciate the night view.
 

Other Tips

The climate in Chongqing is humid in May and laundry can't dry quickly, so you need to take extra clothes. If you would like to cruise on the Yangtze River and Jialing River, you'd better take some food and drink, because the accommodation on board is expensive. The food in Chongqing is mostly spicy, so you need to take some medicines to protect you from getting indigestion. For fear of the inconvenience of heavy passenger traffic during May Day holiday, you'd better make your travel plans in advance and book train or flight tickets as early as possible.
