A Fascinating Experience in One of the Cities of the Future

As one of the largest cities in China and indeed the world, Chongqing was described as an emerging "megacity" by the Economic Intelligence Unit. The tremendous growth added to the already huge scale means that whatever your interests or field of work, you're sure to find a world of opportunity and fulfillment in the metropolis. Although the city's economy is dominated by heavy industry and manufacturing, the diversity leads to expatriates calling Chongqing home due to work in a variety of other sectors, from electronics to technology. The booming, endlessly growing nature of the city is often at odds with its ancient history, but it only serves to exemplify the fact that within its boundaries, anything and everything can be found, seen, and done.
