Harp Irish Pub is an oasis for foreign expats in Chongqing.    My friends from Europe and the US all gather there weekly and have drinks, listen to music, and eat a pizza.  It is one of the only places in Chongqing where expats go regularly, and so you are always assured of running ... Details

Cactus Tex Mex was a great experience.  It is a sophisticated bar atmosphere which looks into a 9 story cave, with views of the river in downtown Chongqing.

The food was exceptional.  Our party ordered Guacamole and chips to start, Combo Enchilladas, BBQ Ribs, Beef Tenderloin, and ... Details

Visited both these museums in December 2010 and must compliment those who strive to keep both up together. I must however point out that both pictures and narrative on show are deteriorating badly without any protective coverings. Surly it would not take too much to either put copies on display or frame ... Details

Chongqing, as the starting point of the Yangtze River Cruise, is a modern city with time-honored culture and wonderful natural scenery. I have been a great interest in this city and want to take a tour around it for a long time. And I really made it before the trip to the Three Gorges. The most bustling ... Details

The days crowd is gone and the last of the stall holders, local farmers, are packing the remains of their produce as the sun, a huge orange ball drops slowly from the clear blue sky. Assorted sacks of multi-coloured beans and seeds, dried mushrooms and wild medicinal weeds and smoked pork, rabbit and ... Details

Myself and my wife travelled to Chongqin to go to the British consulate to sort out our marriage registration, so I had no expectations of having so much fun at Chongqin. We got the bus from Mian Yang and travelled for about 5 hours to our destination. I am 6ft 1inch tall so you can imagine how much ... Details

After ten minutes, the fireworks are obscured behind the thick pall of smoke they have created. The echos reverberating off the buildings make it difficult to determine just where the fireworks actually are. I hang out the window in the stairwell to get a better view but before long I can only see ... Details

The fact that we had missed the last turn was not surprising and proved to be an advantage. With no obvious road signs since we turned off five kilometers back it was not hard to miss – just a simple fork in the road, with one staying high and the other dropping into the valley floor. From the ... Details

I spent one day in Chongqing. It was my last stop on a whirlwind tour of major cities of China over Spring Festival during my first year in China. Whereas most people who visit Chongqing go out on the Yangtze River or see the Dazu Rock Carvings, I saw nothing in the China guidebook. At least, not on ... Details
