This is a strange combination. Why are you going to Chongqing?

Pandas are in Chengdu, not Chongqing (unless you want to go to the Chongqing Zoo, which I don't recommend). But your general concept works if you substitute Chongqing with Chengdu. Chengdu has a lot to see in the general vicinity besides pandas, so 3-4 days there would be good. I suggest that you have at least one day/night in Shanghai before your international departure day. Don't ever try to connect from a domestic to international flight or you could miss the second flight.

Yes, very strange! Very long distance to Chongqing from Shanghai. Since you like the pandas and do not mind the distance, change to Chengdu panda base, much better than that in Chongqing. Or go and take the panda volunteer program for a day.

Chongqing is a new city while chengdu has been around for 2000 years and is the panda capital plus while you are there try to make time for Leshan giant buddha and jiuzhaigou which hopefully will be reopened when you are there
