Chongqing is one of China’s major cities – a manufacturing centre, transport hub and inland port. Today, the city is ultramodern and most of its heritage is lost but it has a fascinating history dating back as far as the Ba Kingdom (around 300 BC) including being China’s defacto capital during World War II.
