Located in the riverside of Yangtze river, the place is in a walking distance from Jiefangbei CBD. this place is good to visit from afteroon to around 10 PM. You can try variety of local snacks, local arts and even foreign foods over here.

The view from outside of the building is beautiful but inside shops are totally tourist trap. The souvenir they sell are very expensive compare to other places.

The spot was very touristic but the lights were magnificent. We found a nice restaurant there where we had a nice dinner. There were also nice pubs.

Spent a night walk here for nice neon light view. Cafe, antique, souvenirs, restaurants and hotel. Building built on hillside with few stories and may enter on hill top from jiefangbei direction or ground floor near the river.

On a weekend, the elevators are seriously inadequate, and you can wait a long time, or walk... On Saturday morning we discovered, on the lowest level, on the street, the weekly market where... More

Loved every moment in this place. If your looking for some nightlife fun,ancient chinese buildings and a chinese shopping experience you must come here. I recommend coming to this place at night since the whether will be cooler and they will light lanterns which looks really nice
