ⓘ Wanzhou District

Wanzhou District is Chongqings second most populated urban core area on the upper reaches of the Three Gorges of the Yangtze River in China. It is currently governed as a district of Chongqing Municipality, bordering Sichuan to the northwest and Hubei to the southeast. It was formerly known as Wanxian or Wan County. Prior to Chongqings formation as a direct-controlled municipality, Wanzhou was part of Sichuan province. The urban core of Wanzhou is 228 km away from Chongqings city proper.

"Wenzhou" literally means "many-Prefecture", where "a myriad rivers converge and a lot of dealers are collecting" 万川毕汇、万商云集. Due to the construction of the dam the Three gorges dam, 47% of Wanzhous old urban area will be underwater by the time the reservoir is filled. Houses in the flooded district were demolished and new ones rebuilt on higher level.
