Book a holiday to Chongqing with the UK's #1 China Operator
Located on the upper Yangtze River basin, Chongqing forms a peninsula of city life, surrounded by natural mountainous territory.
Known as ‘The Mountain City’, you’ll find a mixed terrain surrounding the city, which benefits from water reserves, dense forestry, mineral resources and flora and fauna. Making it a top contender of places to visit on people’s bucket lists, especially as it’s a common starting point for a Yangtze river cruise, tourists flock in from all over the world to explore the city before heading downstream to the Three Gorges.
At night, the tall skyscrapers that form the city’s sharp skyline are illuminated, making the view completely unforgettable. Take an evening stroll after enjoying a traditional Chinese Hot pot and take in the city atmosphere and lights.
Many wonderful sites are also right on your doorstep such as the UNESCO protected Dazu Rock Carvings and Wulong Karst National Geology Park.
