Chongqing is one of China's four direct-controlled municipalities (the others are Beijing, Shanghai, and Tianjin). It is the largest of the municipalities by area and it is the only one that is located far away from the coast. Chongqing is located in southwestern China within Sichuan Province and shares borders with Shaanxi, Hunan, and Guizhou provinces. The city is known as being an important economic center along the Yangtze River as well as a historical and cultural center for the country of China. For remote teams and enterprises, Chongqing provides many professional opportunities as one of China’s key commercial hubs.
Approximately 3.9 million people live and work in the urban areas of the city while the majority of Chongqing's residents are farmers working in areas outside the urban core. As one of the most important economic centers in western China, the city has a diversified economy with major industries in processed food, automobile manufacturing, chemicals, textiles, machinery, and electronics. Interestingly, Chongqing is also the largest manufacturer of motorcycles in China. The city regularly attracts visitors from home and abroad for its natural wonders and cultural heritage. As a common starting port for the Yangtze River cruise, tourists can go for a downstream tour to the magnificent Three Gorges.
