Spent a cold and wet hour or so here. Enjoyed the time perusing the 11 levels. Obviously designed for tourists but has an eclectic selection of shops. Has a good view of the river, although in our case could not see the far shore because of the January weather. Certainly worth a lok around if you have some spare time... More

Street-like restaurants and shops in 11 floors. Tourist attraction, mostly for Chinese, but also lao wais (foreigners). Starbucks and typical Sichuan hot-pot hand in hand. Nice view to Jialing river, with funny pirate ship (why do they have it there?)

Obviously past its prime this location still makes for an enjoyable shopping experience buy bending architectural natural and environmental influences together to create a unique market experience. Harps Irish pup made for a nice reprieve from the heat and crowds providing very nice hot wings and a cold Guinness. Roy Orbison and UB40 drifted through the air... however I could... More

This is a beautiful piece of architecture. Unfortunately, without strict city planning, rising skyscrapers are threatening to really spoil things. Also, the maintenance has not been up to scratch so that the water feature and the 2 pavilions could have been nicer. Still, we were really pleased with the assortment of of arts and craft shops in the building though... More

Hongya cave is a fairly standard Chinese souvenir and food area. There are a lot of fun shops and tastes treats to be had.

Hong Ya Dong (Dong means Cave in Chinese)is an important landmark of tourism in Chongqing. It is situated just blocks from the JieFangBei Tower and overlooks the JiaLing River. HongYaDong has an amazing river view and is one of the prime spots to sit and have a drink and unwind after a long day in Chongqing. At night, the rooftop... More

Hongya cave/hongyadong is one of the main touristy things to do in Chongqing. It's best in the evening when it's dark because the whole place is lit up with red lights. It's about 13 stories high with different levels of shops and restaurants, inlcuding an Irish Bar, Tex Mex Restaurant (the food is pretty good but a quite pricy), Subway... More

A new building on an old site, this is one of the premier tourist stops in Chongqing. Dining and shopping is best here.

The whole area is captivating, the history, the unique structures against the cliffs high above the river. But check the prices of your purchases, including meals, before you place your order, or you might end up paying ten dollars (58 RMB) for a bowl of meatless soup. It was a big bowl, but one I'm used to paying no more... More

Mostly tourist stuff, not really quality items. International food is an attraction for some foreigners. The cramped, local, food street is a good reason to go. Easy to get to from the pedestrian street at the monument.
