Chongqing is a modern city, with an ancient history spanning more than 3,000 years. It is the nation's fourth municipality after Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin. It encompasses within its borders, a great wealth of water reserves, mineral resources, dense forests and abundant flora and fauna. Being the focal point of the unique Yangtze Three Gorges tourist industry, Chongqing is a tourist attraction as well as being a commercial city. Situated in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River - at the confluence of Yangtze and Jialing Rivers, in Southwest China, Chongqing is a port city with the largest area and population in China.

Actually ChongQing is MORE dense than Shanghai. And in places MUCH MORE dense than Shanghai

ChongQing aslo has a very different feel to it than east coast cities. Pitty this isn't really reflected in the pictures which almost all seem to be taken in small area at the tip of the peninsula made up by confluence rivers. Also careful avoidance of like "under the towers" (what is a "shame") is very unfortunate as it robs pictures of true CQ character.
Another odd thing is that although CQ is a know as FOG city practically all pictures are made on a sunny day, which is IMHO boring and uncharacteristic. City come in its own when it shrouded in clouds when those towers uppear and disappear in them - absolutely surreal view.City is also very green -forested mountains cut right into downtown.

Very amazing and colorful photos, those night ones :)
Too old pics!
ya, we need some current pics.

you all will be AMAZED at the city now. ....

I first visited CQ last year (May 2009), then visited again in 2010 - and the change in 1 year is incredible. .....

CQ definitely is more dense than SH, I think it is due to geography and CQ's very eloquent inclusion of green space - that forces skyscrapers to be hyper dense and tall. I think CQ has China's/Asia's tallest residential skyscrapers, NOT Shanghai - like most might think.
