I recently took my family to the Philippine Consulate in Chongqing China from Chengdu. It’s more than 300 kilometers distance from where we live in Chengdu. The train trip was about two hours and it made just a few stops. We has some business to complete at the Consulate so we decided to stay for the night to see the city.
The food here in Sichuan providence is not the typical Chinese food you would expect if you live in the US. The food here is spicy and hot and they eat lots of noodles and pork. They had the spiciest noodles at the 7-11 right around the corner of the consulate.
On the return trip, we got the nonstop and we were back in an hour and 45 minutes.
Below is a short video of our train ride to to Chongqing.
