Answered by Miguel from SPAIN | Jul. 17, 2019 18:14

This Chongqing Station is indeed the nearest one, about 20min by taxi. Taxi fare may be around CNY35. The problem is which station you can use depends on the train you will take. As I know this station only has slow rides. If you need to use high speed type, then you may consider West Station, North Station or Shapingba station.
