Chongqing, a metropolis of more than 30 million people in Southwest China, is different from other Chinese cities. In 1997, it became the fourth municipality of China after Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin.

Many people are drawn to Chongqing by its delicious food - including its famous hotpot - and natural scenery.

Boasting the largest number of hotpot restaurants in China, Chongqing was named "China's Hotpot City" by the China Cuisine Association in 2007. According to the Chongqing Hotpot Association, there are more than 50,000 hotpot eateries in the city.

Largely built on mountains and surrounded by the Yangtze and Jialing rivers, it's often called the mountain or river city. The city looks futuristic with its skyscrapers, while at the same time, with some 3,000 years of history, it still preserves the local culture and lifestyles.
