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

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
