Chongqing

Trip Planner Asia  /  China  /  Chongqing Region  /  Chongqing
With one of the most populated and largest metropolitan areas in the world, Chongqing was the de facto capital of China during World War II. Its wartime political importance and post-war economic boom have left a number of attractions in Chongqing, including war memorials and museums, government buildings, and thriving commercial districts with a wealth of malls and more traditional market areas. Though Chongqing separated from Sichuan Province towards the end of the 20th century, the city still shares many cultural links with its neighbor. This can be seen in its emphasis on spicy dishes, including the iconic range of red soup hot pots. Put Chongqing at the heart of your travel plans by using our China trip tool .
