Located in central China is the city of Chongqing. The name Chongquing comes from the Jialing River that runs through the city into the nearby Yangtze River. It is the greatest populated city of the People's Republic of China's four provincial-level municipalities. Unlike the other three Chongqing is based in the less populated western region of China. In the recent 2005 census, just over 6.3 million people lived in Chongquing which is much lower than the other nearby areas. Supposedly Chongqing was established around the eleventh century BCE by the Ba people and by 316 BCE, the State of Quin had overrun the city.
The old and the new. They are always together everywhere in Chongqing.
