Chongzhou (Chinese: 崇州; pinyin: Chóngzhōu) is a county-level city under the jurisdiction of Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan province, People's Republic of China, located about 37 kilometres (23 mi) west-southwest of downtown Chengdu. It is accessible by road from central Chengdu via the 65.1 km (40.5 mi)-long S8 Chengdu–Wenjiang–Qionglai Expressway, just just outside the Chengdu greater ring road.

Nearby restaurants are crowded on weekends, and frequently used for off-site meetings and wedding ceremonies.

Chongzhou is nearby a set of rivers and nearby towns that are worth visiting, for example Anren, in Dayi county, which was a famous prosperous town in the Tang dynasty. Nowadays a charming old town centre to visit, and roughly 20 minutes drive from Chongzhou.
