If it's your first visit to Chongqing, you can choose to spend the first evening here. Chongqing is known in China as 'Shan cheng', or the 'mountainous city'. I would rather say that Chongqing is a city built on slopes or cliffs, as you can often see. Such is Hongya Cave. Watch the night scene and eat nearby. There're some... More

A magnificent cluster of buildings- hotels, shopping mall & tea houses that is built on the slope, on slits and facing the river. Spend a couple of hours there to enjoy the great creation of mankind.

Hongyadong,as it is known locally,is incredibly popular with tour groups due to its central location and good example of traditional ancient Chinese architecture. Many restaurants and tea houses...mostly overpriced... attract Western visitors. I have been to Hongyadong many times over the last 10 years and it is disappointing that the individualistic clothing stores that were prolific a few years ago... More

Great place with several expat restaurants and bars. Over looks the river. There is a Subway (sandwich), Starbucks, and Dairy Queen on the upper level. Take an escalator down and you will find some fun expat spots that offer imported beer, tex mex, and such.

Hongya Cave consists of many ancient dwellings, which have been restored, and is built on the hillslopes overlooking the area. It is walking distance to Jiefangbei square, the CBD of CQ. There is a tea house for you to savour Chinese tea while taking in the scenery, and many retail shops selling local foodstuffs and souveniers for tourists.

It's full of restaurant and too commercial. If you are searching for a great place to see the river view at night, it will be a good choice to find a great seat at the coffee shop along the edge. If you are looking for a natural experience, try to find somewhere else.

I have been always enjoy my afternoons in Hongya Cave with a cup of tea in hand, simply sit and see the outside river view at the higher levels. At forth floor, there are a lot of local foods and souvenir stores, good place to have snacks and do some shopping. Later around 9 or 10 o'clock, go to the... More

Hongyadong had been through cycles of being full or nearly empty, in terms of the number of merchants. Lately, it has been pretty well populated. I only recently discovered jewelry vendors on the street at the bottom of the cliff side Hongyadong area. Some very high-end. I like the photo opportunities around the complex - some very traditional, some cool... More
