| My incoming flight by West Air was arriving to Terminal 2 at night, and my onward international flight was from Terminal 3 several hours later in the morning. It was easy to find the transit bus stop (there were a few taxi drivers offering their services at the arrival hall, but they weren't annoying as long as they saw I'm uninterested), and, despite my worries, the bus was operating at night and my wait time was no longer than 10 minutes. On the way, the bus stopped a few times to pick up and drop off mostly airport staff in a few places, including the now-disused old Terminal 1, but it took no more than 20 minutes to get to Terminal 3. Terminal 3 is very modern, but looks a bit empty except the departure floor where there are quite many shops (many of which started to open after 6am) and restaurants. I didn't have time to get out to the city at Chongqing, so I picked up some food souvenirs at Mannings supermarket as well as another smaller shop - the prices, while possibly higher than in the city, didn't seem to be overly so. The 7-eleven has some inexpensive foods as well. Wi-Fi is free, doesn't take much hassle to log in, and is fast enough. Check in desks look unusual with those futuristic large machines where all the baggage goes in place of traditional rubber belts. Otherwise, the check in and security procedures were as usual. Didn't have too much time to explore the airside, but it looks a bit empty too.
