Chongqing is the largest city in the southwest of China with more than 30 million inhabitants. As part of a final exam, I was able to come here once again. This time the journey was a bit easier, because the school is only half an hour away from the airport.
Chongqing is known for its Sichuan cuisine, which is very spicy. So spicy that I always order a bowl of rice first to have something ready to compensate right away if it gets too spicy.
Chongqing is an industrial city and so vocational training is very important, especially in the field of industrial manufacturing. Chongqing Industry Polytechnic College is a medium-sized school with 15,000 students and trains many professions in manufacturing and automotive.
Just like almost everywhere else in the world, there is a shortage of good skilled workers, especially those who like to do some hands-on work.
The nice thing about the schools in China is that there is usually a lot of space and usually also beautiful outdoor facilities where you can walk after a delicious lunch.
