Chongqing is a major city in southwest China and one of China's four municipalities under the direct administration of central government. The rolling hills and the buildings built by the mountains give Chongqing a vertical landscape. Chongqing has a significant history and culture. Being one of China's National Central Cities, it serves as the economic centre of the upstream Yangtze basin. It is a major manufacturing centre and transportation hub; a July 2012 report by the Economist Intelligence Unit described it as one of China's "13 emerging megalopolises".
It is also called "The Stove" due to its hot weather and the local spicy food. Yummy snacks, beauties and hot pot are all the symbolic labels of Chongqing. It is a good choice to travel from the hot Chongqing to Nyingchi during the heating summer.
