Chongqing lies in southwestern China on the upper reaches of the Yangtze River. It is the largest industrial and commercial center in the southwest. In 1997, Chongqing was made the fourth municipality directly under the central government. Camellia is the city flower. The city features a picturesque landscape, an enchanting night view, cultural sites from the Three Kingdoms period, exquisite stone sculptures in Dazu,the magnificent Three Gorges, and remains of the Far East Headquarters during World War II. Its more than 300 scenic spots at the 20 odd scenic areas attract numerous Chinese and overseas tourists. You can enjoy the local food or take pictures of local scenery. The gorgeous natural landscapes plus ma made scenery there will surely remain in your memory. When I stay in that city, I enjoy delicious hot spicy food. There're many restaurants where you can try hot pot. If you're a gourmet, you will certainly love the city.
