Wanzhou

Wanzhou, formerly named Wanxian(a county near Chongqing), has been a district of Chongqing since the municipality was established in 1997. Located at the western end of Yangtze River's renowned Three Gorges region, Wanzhou is an important port along the river. Before Chongqing municipality was formally separated from Sichuan province, Wanxian was regarded as the Gateway to Eastern Sichuan and functioned as a main manufacture base and distribution center for goods between Sichuan and neighbouring Shaanxi and Hubei provinces.
