How come Chongqing doesnt light up at night like other cities? It seems that pretty much all of light from the windows are off and only the external structure is providing the light, whereas other major cities' building light up only with neon light and window light at night. Maybe it's just because Chongqing people finish work earlier.

Later in July I will so proove you guys wrong. We'll see infact how new yorkish Chongqing is besides the fact that it has a chrysler knock off and sits on a peninsula that looks like it is seperated.
