Visited last May. We were on a 7 day cruise and stopped in Chongquing. From the Yangtze you go from beautiful scenery to the what looks like a huge sprawling grey industrial landscape, surrounded in a pollution haze. To be honest I would of been happy to pass it. We had a couple of tours here - the pollution was... More

China has undergone an industrial revolution... What happened over a period of two hundred years in Europe, has unfolded in China in ten years.. I have now just had my fifth trip since 2006. In that time I am stunned by the incredible demise of the environment.. Acid rain, choking acrid 'mists'( as the toxic haze is referred to by... More

It is geographically interesting to see the two rivers merging. However, if you've walked there, which is easy from People's Square, don't think you'll find a taxi back easily. Also the vendors can get a bit aggressive-- I would have bought one of the beautiful high flying kites being flown there, but the vendors just turned me off.

I don't have time to walked around this place, because my local friend just lead me to the boat. Pay for the ticket, and we rushed to upstairs deck. Lots of local people. The city view from here is awesome.. Just a short trip, but i think is worthed.

Chongqing was the biggest disappointment that I have ever experienced. As a western, it was extremely difficult to get a taxi althought locals took them easily in front of your eyes. In other words, people are rude to you, some even spit to ground when you pass them by. Others stare at you like you where some kind of an... More

Chaotianmen has everything! I love shopping in this area as you can find everything from knock off victorias secret bras to meat on a stick. This is a place for bargain shopping and all day people watching. I particularly like the fabric market! You can take a taxi here, or you can take the 151bus to hong ya dong and... More

Chaotianmen isn't what it used to be at all, but it's still something you have to see if you visit Chongqing. Try to go in the evening, get some dinner at one of the restaurants there, and then pay for a boat ride on the river. The boat ride is a total rip-off, but it's the one way you're going... More
