Arrival in Chongqing
The cruise ship docked very early in the morning at Chongqing, the final destination of our Yangtze River cruise. Looks like a bit of a walk to get into the city.
The Towers of Chongqing
Off in the hazy distance, many tall towers of residences and hotels are visible.
Up the the Bus
Tourists walk up the stairs to street level, where tour buses awaited to take us to our next stop.
Yangtze River Crossing
Off in the distance is a gigantic bridge that spans the Yangtze River in Chongqing.
Supply the Cruise Ship
Behind the scenes to support the cruise ship, there's a ton of food and hard work needed to move all of it. There was a parade of people carrying giant baskets of food to the ship like this.
Another area of Chongqing that seems to house some nicer residential towers nestled among the hills along the river.
Leaving the Cruise Ship
One last look at the cruise ships where we spent the last four days.
Our next stop was the Chongqing zoo and this statue foreshadows the highlight to come.

Ya Ya Eating Apples
Ya Ya - the giant panda - was seen here enjoying some fruit.
Now for some Bamboo
Next up for Ya Ya was to chew on some bamboo.
A Look of Satisfaction
Ya Ya took a break from all of that chewing action.
