THE PEOPLE IN CHONGQING
Chongqing people are tough, building tunnels through the mountains, constructing bridges and sophisticated overpasses. They contend with the mountains and rivers as well as live on them. Because of the extremely hot summers and cold, wet winters, they invented hot pot, love chili, and now they can’t live without them. Chongqing people are very proud of their food and it is hard for them to embrace food from other places.
Influenced by the “Paoge” culture, Chongqing people are open-hearted and straightforward. They are renowned for their lack of patience, speaking loudly and fiery tempers. However, their bad temper is like a torrential downpour in the summer; very powerful but coming and going fast. Chongqing people are loyal to their friends, even when friends have let them down. Despite their bad tempers, they still have lots of friends.
So, don’t miss your opportunities to make friends with Chongqing people, they can make your time here richer and exciting.
