Chongqing is China’s fourth municipality after Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin. It is a cultural and historical city of many unique traits. Apart from being blessed with water on three sides, its buildings have also been constructed against the mountains on the last side. This is generating different layers to the city appearance that has become hallmark of Chongqing, giving it the nickname “Mountain city”.

And what would a Chinese city be without a famous dish? Chongqing’s is the numbingly spicy hotpot, a daredevil culinary adventure.
