Chongqing, an "8D magic city" with a remarkable sense of design

As an “8D magic city” covering 82,400 square kilometers, Chongqing is situated in the inland western China with over 32 million people. It is also the only municipality directly under the Central Government of China that has large urban and rural areas, large reservoir areas, large mountainous areas and ethnic minority areas. Home to over 15,000 bridges, it is also called the “bridge capital” of China.

Chongqing is one of China’s 6 long-standing industrial bases and a national pilot area for urban-rural integrated development. 

Owning 164 sister cities and 13 consulates-general, Chongqing has opened 110 international air routes to 80 cities in 36 countries, presenting more chances for exchanges and cooperation among UCCN members.
