Voice of Travelers to Chongqing

Family trip to Chongqing

I decided to take my family for a trip to Chongqing. They had never been to Asia. I am half Chinese so I wanted my kids to have a taste of some of their Asian roots. Getting visas and booking the ticket was simple. I was able to get an ir ticket for everyone at a significantly lower rate. This was because it was not a peak season and expenses including the ticket costs were cheaper. The ticket was by AIRASIA. The airline had really great service and the flight attendants anticipated all our needs prior during our flight to Chongqing. We arrived and settled into the Hilton Chongqing, where we would stay for the next two weeks. We visited many tourist attractions with the kids while in Chongqing. The major sites we visited in Chongqing include CI Qi Qu village where we paid 100RMB entry ticket fee which I thought was too high and Hongya Cave. We got our way back home after the refreshing tour via an air ticket by CHINA AIR.

Moving to Chongqing for a month

My name is Susan Lewis. I work for Payless Enterprises. My company sent me to work in their branch in Chongqing. I agreed to move to Chongqing for a month. My work in Chongqing would be to do audits and meet new suppliers. I was to do a report after my four week stay in Chongqing. I got the air ticket from South Eastern airlines. They usually have the best service in the plane. I had acquired a ticket from the same airline to China Mainland and had also enjoyed their service. I finally arrived in Chongqing. I found the place interesting and full of so much culture. The living standards were way cheaper as I could spend up to 3000 RMB per month. The most amazing thing about Chongqing is the delicacies available everywhere. You will find tasty bites, snacks and food all over the city of Chongqing, being a foodie this was a plus for me. When my time was over in Chongqing, I boarded a ticket by the same airline.
