Home to Sichuan peppers and famous Chongqing spicy hot pot, Chongqing, China is a popular place not only for tourists to visit but also for expats to live in!

With a population of over 18 million, Chongqing is a major city in the southwestern region of China and one of China’s four municipalities. Chongqing is located next to the Yangzhe river and many mountain ranges, which makes the city a beautiful place to live and makes it easy to access hiking trails and many nature parks in the area. Chongqing’s central location in China also makes it a huge transportation hub and allows easy travel to other cities like Chengdu and Zhangjiajie.
