Sure. I know people who've been or lived there. "There's a reason you've never heard of it" they say. "It's basically any big Chinese city, just bigger". But they said the same about Guangzhou and so I remained unperturbed.
I knew it would be hectic, hazy, hilly and very Chinese. I figured there'd be some curious local delicacies, one or two AAAA tourist traps and a lot of fun.

Well done China. It's bloody awesome. Chongqing you proved me right. It's exactly why I came to this country.
