Looks like a scene from a science fiction movie.😃😃😃@TripInChina@visitchongqing
The video shows a metropolis with trains, people, and other transportation emerging in a way that resembles the fictional city from science fiction films.
The video features the Chongqing Light Rail System, which is known as a unique transit system.
The video also featured several perspectives on daily life, all of which are equally amazing and lovely. Social media users left a number of interesting comments on the fascinating video.
"Most science fiction settings are based on east Asian high-tech cities. Crowded, high-density, high-tech buildings, with train-oriented traffic and lots of pedestrians. This is not your typical western city, and obviously not the American kind of city," commented one user.
"The city has a very artificial feel to it. No offense, but we need more nature friendly development," wrote another user.
"We need to make cities more crowded, and with more crowded space for humans, that means more space for nature," a third user commented.
