About Chongqing

Chongqing is renown in China for being a "mountain city". The brilliant nightscape of the town is equally as famous. The whole city is constructed on the tall peaks, low valleys and sloping hills of the mountainside. Many skyscrapers have an upper, middle and lower ground level entrance. When strolling about the downtown area, visitors will find themselves walking uphill and downhill along the undulating terrain of the streets. Central Chongqing is located at the confluence of the Yangtze and Jialing Rivers. It is also one of the important Yangtze River ports. The port itself has created its own kind of local culture. It can be said that the people here are similar to their favorite hotpot meal, a bit hot and spicy, and perhaps a bit prone to fiery outbursts. Leaving central Chongqing, there is an abundance of natural and cultural sites of interest. For example, visitors can see amazing geological wonders like the Heavenly Pit—the world's deepest sinkhole. There are also ancient relics and structures at places like Baidicheng Temple Complex or Diaoyu Fortress.

Trip Moments

The museum in each city is the most worthwhile, because the museum introduces the past and present of the city. Chongqing China Three Gorges Museum is like the Shaanxi History Museum in my eyes. It is the place to visit Chongqing. Chongqing China Three Gorges Museum is not a few pictures and a few paragraphs of text to describe it clearly. The story about it may take a whole day to peruse, and each piece of work has a lot of history behind it. It is the monument of the city, it is the mother of the city, no matter how the city changes in the future, it will record its growth story to provide understanding for future generations.

If you want to spend New Year’s Day on a super magical 8D trip, Chongqing is the place to be! Hongyadong is known as the red card of Chongqing's must-have card network. It is also known as the realistic version of Hayao Miyazaki's movie! The characteristic design of the hanging foot building has different elevators that lead to different urban areas and streets in Chongqing. The characteristics of this mountain city in Chongqing are vividly reflected. The food inside is also amazing! The bustling crowd also constitutes a spectacular night scene! It is especially beautiful when it lights up at night! Standing on the opposite side of the road from the Millennium Gate Bridge or Hongya Cave, you can film super beautiful movies!

Taikoo Cave is located in the Taohuayuan Scenic Spot in Fuyang, Chongqing. It is about three kilometres long and about 2.5 kilometers in the cave landscape. It takes about two hours to complete the journey. Taikoo Cave was the last hiding place for the Taoyuan people to escape the war. Taikoo Cave was formed in ancient times, and various wonders in the cave are still growing and changing. A small path connects the two ends of the cave and we have to walk on the path. The vision is dim, and the various stone pillars, stalagmites, stone sarcophagi and stalactites are different in shape. The images of the anthropomorphic characters are reflected in the background of the lights. It is amazing.
