Nice View, Nice Walk. Quite crowed at night. Need to wait a bit for your turn to get into elevator that travels 11 floors.... More

Very unique buildings, with decent hotpot place, souvenir shops and local food stalls, and they are surprisingly good, unlike those terrible food we usually find at other tourist attractions.

Maybe if your into trinket shopping or have kids this might be of interest. No so much a cave as a shopping mall anchored to a mountain with a cave. Very tourist, and a lot of overpriced souvenirs. Decent views of CQ and the rivers.

Plenty of restaurants with working wifi. Starbucks at the top level with nice view of the river. Be careful of pickpockets though

This is a must go place no matter you watch the cartoon "Spiritual Away" or not. It's totally stunning while standing inside the building, and it's like you are standing between time....

We visited this place twice, once in the evening and then during the day. There are all sorts of stores here, from clothing stores, to souvenir shops, snack stalls and full service restaurants. Parts of the shopping center are empty. The most interesting part is the food section on the 4th floor. This is an outdoors area, as are the... More

This is basically a town by itself, it was almost everything you need, accomodation, restaurants, shops etc. A shopping precinct that looks like it was carved into the side of a mountain. In fact, it probably is.... Not much I did not like about the place, other than the exorbitant prices the vendors charged for their souvenirs and were not... More

Good variety of restaurants with views of river. Cave is worth 2 minutes of your time; historic recreated buildings adjacent cave offer good restaurant choices

While it is an important Chongqing tourist location, it's also a little tacky and over commercial and suffers from the fairly typical disney-fying of chinese culture prevalent in many local sights. However it is certainly worth going just to see the view of the river from the top of the structure
