The facilities are getting a little dated but the meeting of the Yangze and Jailing rivers make it a must see attraction

This is a great place to get a sense of the scale of chongqing. Buy a coffee and a newspaper or bring a book and sit on the steps overlooking the confluence of the Yangtze and Jialing rivers. A huge construction project is underway and due to be completed here in 2017. Apparently by then the building will look like... More

Just going down to the Yangtze riverside was quite an experience; including all the trade shops one street above the riverbank road, with all it's ware and trading, and the locals shopping and vendors yelling out for customers!!! quite an experience.

Visited last May. We were on a 7 day cruise and stopped in Chongquing. From the Yangtze you go from beautiful scenery to the what looks like a huge sprawling grey industrial landscape, surrounded in a pollution haze. To be honest I would of been happy to pass it. We had a couple of tours here - the pollution was... More

China has undergone an industrial revolution... What happened over a period of two hundred years in Europe, has unfolded in China in ten years.. I have now just had my fifth trip since 2006. In that time I am stunned by the incredible demise of the environment.. Acid rain, choking acrid 'mists'( as the toxic haze is referred to by... More

It is geographically interesting to see the two rivers merging. However, if you've walked there, which is easy from People's Square, don't think you'll find a taxi back easily. Also the vendors can get a bit aggressive-- I would have bought one of the beautiful high flying kites being flown there, but the vendors just turned me off.
