Exclamation Chongqing (Megathread!)

Almost all of these look far, far better in their original size, which can be viewed by clicking on the image (and then "All Sizes"/"Original" for those unfamiliar with the ways of flickr). Enjoy. Or don't.

Nice shots.
Chongqing's skyline looks amazing.
The lights reminds me of HK.

Some seriously good photos here

Chongqing seems one of those yet "unknown" Chinese cities although it's probably the size of London or so (or bigger? Depening on the way the population is counted there...). I just wondered how Chongqing compares, for instance, with Beijing in terms of actual city size, transport and general attractiveness (nightlife, sightseeing, shopping, etc.).
Anyway, thanks for a nice thread, good to have people representing Chinese cities in such a great deph and quality.

At long last an original Chongqing thread. All dope, all around. The one shot of the little kid walking up the stairs is ace. Oh, and those panos.

Those shots are incredible. Chongqing is one of my favorite cities on earth. Thanks for bringing back some memories with this thread.

Excuse me for asking, but is this supposed to be some kind of pro-commie, freedom hating propaganda?

You went, you bastard! These are some seriously sick photographs. Thread of the year for me!

Love it love it love it.

I'm quite sure some of these photos (this one for instance) have something to o with the human rights abuse in China. BBC/CNN should rush to bake a broadcast about it now! (chickens walking down the street = human rights being abused by the communist state... as usual makes plenty of sense, no?)!

It's amazing that the world is so populated in this day and age that mega cities like this can exist and your average man on the street throughout much of the world knows little to nothing about it's existence.

Awesome photos!

Chinese Pittsburgh! Awesome.

I wonder how much the city has changed since Three Gorges went up.

These photos are so good my man. Most Chongqing threads are just 'Look at the pretty new glassy buildings'.

What is this?

Wow. really captures the transition of China. Chongqing has one foot in 'Old China', one in 'New China'.

Fantastic photos!

Chongqing together with Sichuan and Yunnan is definitely on my must-visit list the next time I'm heading to China.

And it looks like the air quality has also improved in Chongqing. Because in every other thread I've seen of this city so far there were really thick smog layers everywhere.

Nice!

Chongqing is technically the largest city in the world with its municipal boundaries encompassing 82,300 square kilometers (37,116 square miles) and 31,442,300 residents as of 2005. It's larger in area many small countries, and about the size of the state of Maine.

The urban area, however, contains 4,196,000 as of 2005.
