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 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. Sprawled along both banks of the Yangtze, the city is vibrant, exciting, fast-paced and welcoming. As the western terminus of Yangtze River cruises, you are likely to find yourself here if you spend any time on the river – pay a visit to Chongqing Zoo to visit the resident giant pandas.
