In recent years, Chongqing has been recognized as a tourist-friendly city on social media.

The romantic scenes of the two rivers and four banks have lived in our memory.
During the Spring Festival holiday, some roads and bridges in Chongqing were closed to provide tourists with the “world's largest pedestrian bridge” so that they could walk on the bridge and witness the beauty of Chongqing safely. This measure was praised by Hua Chunying, the spokesperson from China’s Foreign Ministry, in a post on social media.
