It is worth visiting Hongya Dong as a tourist when in Chongqing. As per others' previous posts, it can get stenchy on a hot day. So better to visit later in the day towards the evening. Actually, it would be best to come before sunset , tour the area and take pictures , have dinner here, then go around again... More

Hong Ya Dong is a modern, but real Chinese shopping mall, newly build some years ago, but the exterior is totally in the ancient Chinse style. Inside you will find many stores with souvenirs for ver afforable prices, but you can also some find some more sophisticated items. A must-do is eating from the street stalls are the tiny restaurants.... More

We were really looking forward to the Hongya Cave and the buildings surrounding it. Unfortunately, the visit was shorter than expected due to the smell of raw sewage. It was so overpowering that photos were limited. The shops inside were interesting and some had some lovely pieces however most were the usual souvenirs. The Starbucks at the top of the... More

I stayed there for two nights; the hotels there are wonderful and affordable. There are very good restaurants around there. Food there is cheap, spicy and flavorful. I had very great experience overall. Love it

LIKES 1)Many varieties of things to shop and view 2)Different levels of buildings display different things, which is easy for visitors to zero in their specific interests 3)Only place in CHONGQING having so many shops on antiques and jewellery DISLIKES 1)Too many visitors 2)Most of the Lifts are not working, and one has to climb the stairs either way.

I was taken here by a few co-workers who were hoping to by some "spicy sauce" on the traditional foods floor - no luck on that but we did make our way through each level. Since they were on a mission and I was a tag-a-long I didn't actually partake in much that I saw. On level 10 there were... More

It's a magnificent structure steeped in local history. Definitely worth checking out. It's also located close to the river which offers you spectacular night views of yangzi. Plenty of snack stalls for you stomach to maintain your energy to climb up 11 stories. Caution: although there is a lift. Its overcrowded. You are better off using your feet.

It is really quite amazing how they have constructed this multi level building into the side of the cliffs.The views from the top are also stunning, being located very near to major bridges over the Jialing River, also very interesting in itself. The complex is however, a commercial operation with its many small shops and stalls and what you see... More

Be sure to go at night as the view is very unique. Many shops and restaurants there but I think there are mainly for tourist as the price are no cheap at all. Nicely decorated place! 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.
