Southwest China's Chongqing is largely built on mountains and surrounded by rivers; thus it is known as the "mountain city". Many people are drawn to Chongqing by its delicious food - especially its signature spicy hotpot - and natural scenery.

Boasting the largest number of hotpot restaurants in China, Chongqing was named "China's Hotpot City" by the China Cuisine Association in 2007. Statistics show there are more than 50,000 hotpot eateries across the city.

With more than 3,000 year of history, Chongqing still preserves traditional culture and lifestyles. In parallel to its love of its roots, Chongqing's skyscrapers also offer a futuristic atmosphere and a modernistic night view.

Amazing China in 60 Seconds is a short video series covering cultural and scenic hotspots across the country.
