Welcome to Chongqinglife.net

My name is James, and I’m your host of chongqinglife. I first came to Chongqing in 2003, and with the exception of four years spent living in South Korea, I have been here ever since.

The aim of my blog is to offer a world audience the opportunity to gain a deep and personal understanding of the municipality, but also awareness of the practical issues that overseas residents and visitors experience when living in Chongqing.

Unlike many other sources that tend to either overindulge in eulogy, or others that form a outlet for venting dissatisfaction, I want to go give a fair hearing to all aspects of life, both the good and the bad, whilst explaining in a way non Chinese readers understand on the different mentality and culture in China, a gesture of effort that too few make, and which only leads to unnecessary misconceptions and lower qualities of experience in this country of adventure.

In the near future, I intend to develop my website focused specially on learning Mandarin Chinese. Keep an eye on this link for exciting content soon Learn Mandarin Chinese

I would like to maintain close interaction with all my followers, so you are welcome to add me on Wechat using the QR code at the end of this message. You can offer thoughts and comments, ask questions about living in China, or inquire further on the products linked to my website.
