Climate and Weather
Lying in the eastern Sichuan Basin deep inside the mainland of China, Chongqing has been suffering from the heat, especially in summer when the temperature will be up to 43℃, thus Chongqing is worthy of the name as Stove. While when the winter comes, it is somehow comfortably pleasant. In addition, owing to surrounded by the mountains and fog, Chongqing is hailed as the City of Mountain and the City of Fog.
Spring and summer are the better time for travel, but it rains often in the late spring and early summer, while what is lucky is that it often rains at night.
