A Brief Overview













Our Star Exchange Summer Au Pair Program takes place in Chongqing.

Chongqing is located in the Southwest China at the confluence of the Yangtze and Jialing, and with 30.8 million inhabitants it is the world’s largest city. After the fall of Nanjing in the Second Sino -Japanese War, it has been from 1938 – 1945 the temporary capital of the Republic of China. Chongqing is referred to as "the mountain city" because the entire city is surrounded by mountains, which makes it simultaneously a city of many bridges. Particularly appreciated is its mild climate, which allows for the harvest of fresh vegetables even in the winter months. Particularly impressive are the well preserved Buddhist Dazu rocks close to Chongqing. Here over 50,000 statues were carved into the rock from the Tang Dynasty on. In another war, but equally ive is the adjacent Three Gorges National Park and the Three Gorges Dam itself.
