TravelPod Member ReviewsHoliday Inn Chongqing North
Our double room at the Holiday Inn North Chongqing looked good, but was freezing cold - something was off about the airconditioning (we didn't investigate, just turned the thing off). No wifi in the room, just a (slow) cable internet connection.
The travel center advertised in our room didn't exist, according to the receptionists, whose English was poor. When we showed them a picture of the sign in the elevator indicating that there should at least be a ticketing center on the ground floor with them, they waved us to the tea shop. There were indeed two very bored-looking staff members focusing on their computers in the tea shop. They didn't speak any English, would not book train or bus tickets, and could not help organize a small trip in or around Chongqing.
A savvy traveler will find his way in Chongqing, just don't expect much help from the Holiday Inn North.

The city of Chongqing, along with Wuhan and Nanjing are known as the three furnace cities due to their particularly high summer temperatures that go up to 40 degrees Celsius. The city does display distinct seasons but the winters are not always frosty and ...
... indeed immense! I am sure I could not fully appreciate the engineering marvel it truly is. We were hoping for better views from up high but the foggy conditions did not make for good long range views or unfortunately, photos. Our river cruise was coming to an end as we continued along the River to Yichang where we docked and prepared to disembark. It was chaos on the boat and at the dock where hundreds of passengers were hailing taxis, hiring porters to transport luggage, ...
... having lots of conversation with Mitseru and Emiko in English. Demon was pretty quiet because she is shy and her English isn’t as good as Paul and Zhang Yu’s. I have to say through all this Mitseru and Emiko were nothing but nice and after some cold beers (cold is Japanese and American style, never in China) and food, everyone was relaxed. They went back to their hotel and we all headed back to the school for some rest.
The next morning I wanted to take them to ...
... also even more stupid than I had thought. They had come into the school and were standing at the gate, a gate that has three security guards on post at all hours of the day. I asked Short if he was alright and he said he was fine. A crowd gathered and the police did some questioning. I watched from a distance while gorging myself on a sort of banana filled fried bread. The three guys got taken away in a police car and the crowd dispersed. Everyone went home, including me.
