Travel Tips for Chongqing
Chongqing is known as a one of the four 'furnaces' of China. When we were there July 2001, temperature rached 40 degrees celsius. Bring something cool, singlets and thongs for example. You can leave most of your jackets at home. Raincoats are way too hot for this weather too. Bring the disposable ones, or buy an umbrella here. They are about 20RMB.

Chongqing - the largest and most populated municipality of the People's Republic of China's four provincial-level municipalities. It is also the only one of these municipalities in the less densely populated western region of China. Formerly (until 14 March 1997) a sub-provincial city within Sichuan Province, the municipality of Chongqing has a registered population of 31,442,300 (2005). The boundaries of Chongqing municipality reach much farther into the city's hinterland than the boundaries of the other three provincial level municipalities (Beijing, Shanghai and Tianjin), and much of the municipality, which spans over 80 000 km², is rural. The population of the urban area of Chongqing proper was 5.09 million (2000).
The municipal abbreviation, 渝 (Yú), was approved by the State Council on 18 April 1997. Chongqing was also a municipality of the old Republic of China. Its abbreviated name is derived from the old name of a part of the Jialing River that runs through Chongqing and feeds the Yangtze River.
