The tour starts from General Joseph Stilwell Museum. The museum was founded in memory of Joseph W. Stilwell, an American general who contributed a great deal to the Chinese people.

In 1942, during the Second World War, General Joseph W. Stilwell acted under orders to come to Chongqing. He worked as Chief-of-Staff in the China Theater of Operations, and as the Commander-in-Chief of the American Army in the China Burma India Theater. The residence became the headquarters of the China Burma India Theater during that period.

General Stilwell participated in a series of political and military affairs in the CBI Theater of World War II, and cemented a profound friendship with the Chinese people fighting side-by-side in the Anti-Fascist War in China. In July 1944, campaigns in Northern Burma succeeded and a road between India and China was built under his direct supervision, which made ammunition and weapons accessible to China and brought an end to the blockade of the fascist state. The road was later named Joseph W. Stilwell Road.

President Roosevelt recalled General Stilwell to Washington in 1944. William Pace, a former American Secretary of Defense, made a special trip to the museum in 1994 and was greatly touched by how well it had been preserved.

Our next stop is Arhat Temple. Its location is a bit of a surprise: wedged tightly between skyscrapers and apartment blocks. The thousand year old building is still a place of worship and home to 18 monks (although once upon a time, 70 monks were in residence here.) The main attraction is the impressive entrance to the temple decorated with hundreds of Terracotta sculptures. This site is worthwhile even for the non-pious.

Finally, we will go to Chongqing Zoo to enjoy the lovely Chinese Panda.
