    Chongqing is the largest city in southeast CHina and was china's wartime capital during WWII.

    Here are some pictures of Chongqing 1983. For contrast,some pictures of CHongqing 2013 were also posted.

    The landmark of CHongqing, the monument to the victory of Worldwar II. which is in the downtown.

    yeah that is called "The monument of Liberation" (locally Jiefangbei quite a landmark). during ww2 it was erected as "Spiritual Fort" in defiance of Japanese bombardment.

    I bet CQ outshines some of your defined tier-1, in many respects, and even HK in landscape. Foreign Policy tags it as China's Chicago, an industrial hub upstream Yangtze.
