Well, generally speaking, you don't need to worry about the safety problem. It will be ok for you to take a taxi from airport to the downtown. Would you mind providing the concrete living place in downtown? Then I can estimate the time and cost.

What line should we use to get from Chongqing expo center to the city center ?
Answers (1)
Answered by Eliana from CANADA | May. 13, 2019 01:38

Well, what do you mean the city center? Take Chongqing Railway Station as an example, take metro Expo Line to Lijia Station and transfer to metro line 6 to Hongqihegou Station, Exit 2. Then take bus no.112 (Outer Ring) to Caiyuanba Bus Stop. Afterwards, walk southwest around 150 meters to find the destination.
