Chongchuan district, the main urban district of Nantong, Jiangsu province, has enjoyed a reputation as a "land of promise" since ancient times. With a total area of 234 square kilometers and a population of over 1.2 million, Chongchuan district holds jurisdiction over 15 sub-districts, two provincial development zones and one provincial high-tech zone, making it the most densely populated region of Nantong. It also has Nantong's most concentrated production and highest urbanization level.

With the approval of the State Council, the former Chongchuan and Gangzha districts were abolished and a new Chongchuan district was established in July 2020. With that change, the district people's government is now located at No 44 Taowu Road in Hongqiao sub-district.

In 2023, its gross regional product is exptected to reach 175 billion yuan ($24.31 billion), and its general public budget revenue amounted to 11.32 billion yuan.

Chongchuan district, a top-level habitat, boasts two scenic spots of one mountain and one river. The mountain is the Langshan Mountain, a national 4A scenic spot, which provides a terrific view of the river resort. Famous for its pastoral scenery, Langshan Mountain is first of the eight famous mountains of Buddhism in China, and in that context has a history of over 1,400 years. One river refers to the Haohe River, a national 5A scenic spot. The rippling river runs around the city for about 15 kilometers like a piece of jadeite necklace. In Chongchuan district, the natural environment and human history make a perfect harmony, and modern style and traditional flavors interact well with each other.
