Chongqing is one of China's fastest growing Metropolis cities, with a population of more than 32 million people. In fact, Chongqing is the fastest growing urban-center on Earth. It is projected that each year approximately 500 thousand and one million people will migrate to Chongqing. Chongqing is also one of five national central cities within China.

Chongqing is where the Jialing and Yangtze Rivers combine, also making Chongqing a very popular tourist attraction. Many Yangtze Cruises start in the location and sail their way up the Yangtze River.

Chongqing, also known as the "city of ambition" to some, and is commonly known for its foggy weather. However, all the fog does not inhibit the amount of growth that this city is expanding.

"The City of Ambition is a map of economic growth and of hope for the future. But it also breathes with history, social change, and the exploitation of nature. All this is true for the whole of today's China." (Quoted within Wired Magazines Article titled World's Fastest-Growing Megalopolis Hides in Fog.)

Chongqing is where two of our Yangtze based tours depart on their 3 nights / 4 days adventures. At this point I would like to take this opportunity to highlight our Yangtze Downstream Discovery Tour (TYD) Our Yangtze Downstream Tour is a 15 day, 12 nights tour that covers Beijing, Xian, Chongqing, the Yangtze Cruise, Suzhou, and Shanghai.
